...encourages developers with an interest in apps, maps and urban development to come up with innovative solutions to help citizens understand the significance of street addresses.
I am not sure what their aim is. Do they want to make residents more "location aware," i.e. marketing, or are they after technology to map? Lots of marketing speak, but the message gets lost!

They don't want to pay what they know it would cost so trying to get people to do their work for "free"
