Drawing administrative districts from list of street names

I need to process the geometries of administrative districts, given only street names (and, partially, numbers). Most of the streets are completely part of one district.

  1. Is there a way one can extract (labeled) streets as a (polyline) layer from, e.g. OSM? Currently, I'm always encountering the problem that the import of the street names table results in point features when I use the ArcGIS Online geoprocessing.
  2. As far, I have tried Minimum Bounding Geometry - is there better a way? Respectively, can the tool be configured to result in exhausting but distingt polygon areas?

Forgive me for these naive questions, I'm quite new to GIS.  I'm looking forward for Your answers!
