Create Address Ranges

I am looking for a way to automatically create address ranges for street centerlines based on address points. We have a feature class for street centerlines and a feature class for address ranges. Is there a tool or any code that is able to generate address ranges for street centerlines based on our address points? This would really help a ton.
Another question, in address ranges, I understand that left/right denote whether the address is on the left or right side of the street however how do you specify this in an address range? For example, with address ranges 200 - 400, with odd street numbers on the left side, would the "left from address" attribute need to be odd, ie 201, and the "right from address" need to be even, ie 200? Thanks.

I've never done this any way but the hard slow way.  I did a quick search on and found a forum posting that referenced this sample script as being potentially helpful:
