Renumbering: The current system of road and street numbering for addresses was adopted by the Planning and Zoning Commission in 1969 after many complaints from emergency personnel about the haphazard “system” in use — and the fact that many roads were unnumbered, making it difficult for police, fire and ambulance personnel to find people. However, many opposed the renumbering because it was costly and inconvenient. A leader of the effort, who circulated opposition petitions, was Elizabeth Hull, whose longtime address of 1 Silver Spring Road changed to 478 Silver Spring Road.
