Address Range Maintenance

Hi all,

I am currently working on the Address Range for the street centerlines for the city where I work and I need to verify that all of the features are up to date. The problem is the city has 15k+ features under the centerline feature class, and each of them has 4 fields that need to be checked (Left From, Left To, Right From, Right To). I have been looking for a Model or a Script that does that automatically but I have not been able to find anything. Not just for this occasion but I think for the future, since these address are always changing, and a lot of times organizations don't have the time and manpower to keep updating it, a model would come in handy to update these fields. Since geocoding is used a lot by many agencies, it is important to have the most up to date information. If anyone knows of a model/script or has any ideas you would like to share, I'd really appreciate it. I do not know any python but I took some of the tutorials available and did some research and I am trying to work on this on my own so any help would be great! If anyone is interested in this also please contact me. My idea so far is having a buffer around the centerline that selects the parcels adjacent to the centerline, then extracting the parcel numbers creating a list, and I have a code to separate odds and even numbers for the left and right sides, and a code to select the smallest(from) and the highest(to) number. Let me know if anyone has any ideas about this.

PS: I am aware of point addresses and our city currently have those. But they still want to have address ranges because the point ranges are based on our parcels that come from the county database, and they are not all correct. So basically the address range is a backup plan.


Thank you.
