This is a great suggestion for almost everyone here...that have "single-family lots" as you said. I'm beginning to realize that from a practical standpoint, the physical dimensions of our ward make the notion of driving directions laughable.boomerbubba wrote:...The ideal for single-family lots, I think, is to use the parcel frontage to locate the address along the street, and a modest setback. That way you get precision and retain a point useful for automated driving directions.
Also, we don't really have a defined lot of land that we own. I believe they do it where every buyer owns some ambiguous, small fraction of the total land covered by the community. In half of the ward boundaries, the front doors are all really close to the street for which their address denotes. Moving the markers roughly to where each front door is seems like it will make the most sense and be fairly practical even for driving directions. However, in the other half of the ward, the front door locations are all facing opposite the street in its address. Instead the garages always face the street. I could move the markers to the garages to help with driving directions, but there is no where you are allowed to park near the house. Guests are to use provided parking areas scattered around the complex. So again, it seems like marking the front doors make the most sense.
Driving directions really become walking directions in my ward and it seems like the front door makes the most sense for each household for our ward's needs. Would there be any side effects I'm overlooking if I went with a plan like this?
