Descriptive nameBuilding Unit Identification for address and permit activity
File nameadr_unt
Spatial domainPima County
AbstractUnit identification points are added to buildings and/or parcels where more than one structure or Unit exists at the parcel level. The purpose is so permits can be issued against a Unit. This layer is limited to only those units that have been identified for the purpose of assigning a unit to an address as they relate to possible permit activity where multiple units exist on a parcel. ADR_IDs are contained in the dataset for maintenance of a relationship class with address points and parcels.
Known errors/qualificationsNot all existing Units are represented, only those for which in recent years have required that a building permit be issued at the Unit level. Placement of Unit ID points is approximate and continues to be refined as building and site plans become available. The Unit_ID is intended to be unique.

The layer's PARCEL field value is related to the location where the unit resides. It may specify a parcel used for addressing purposes (such as a condominium association's parcel), rather than the condo owner's parcel number.

This layer has overlapping features.
