The Lt. Governor's Office will conduct public meetings on all three islands next week to discuss the local communities chosen for the pilot project of the Virgin Islands Street Addressing Initiative.

Lt. Gregory Francis announced Friday that the addressing methodology will be tested in Mon Bijou on St. Croix, downtown Charlotte Amalie on St. Thomas and Cruz Bay on St. John.

The community meetings will offer discussion about the pilot projects and what residents can expect to occur as the territory begins the transition toward a standardized addressing system.

The meetings are:

- From 3:30 to 5 p.m. Wednesday at St. Ursula's Multipurpose Center on St. John.

- From 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Charlotte Amalie High School on St. Thomas.

- From 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at John H. Woodson School on St. Croix.
