The Marathon County Uniform Addressing System follows guidelines established by the Marathon County Board of Supervisors and is described in detail in Section 9.20 of Marathon County General Code of Ordinances.  Addresses are administered by the Marathon County Conservation, Planning, and Zoning Department (CPZ) in conjunction with the Marathon County 911 Communication Center. All unincorporated areas of Marathon County, which includes forty Towns, and the Villages of Elderon and Stratford the follow the Marathon County Uniform Addressing System. The Goal is to give Marathon County residents the right emergency response service at the right location at the right time.

County Address Grid

The Address number identifies the distance from the point of origin or starting point, which is located in the southwestern corner of the county. A predominately west/east road will start at the west baseline of 100,000.  A predominately south/north road will start from the south baseline of 200,000. As Addresses are assigned to the north and east they will increase. Addresses are issued at a rate of roughly 1600 numbers per mile, or a new number approximately every 3.3 feet. Even numbers will be on the north and west sides of a road; odd numbers will be on the south and east sides of the road. Regular users of the Marathon County Uniform Addressing System, such as Citizens, Fire Departments, EMS, Sheriff’s Office personnel and other agencies such as the U.S Postal Service, can determine the general location of an Address within Marathon County based upon the number.
