Addressing Changes

Address Changes occur when problems arise such as:

  • Streets are renamed or realigned

  • Address numbers are duplicated or out of sequence

  • Cannot be accessed from the designated street

  • Do not follow the Addressing Standards

The GIS Office researches all inquiries received about erroneous addressing issues. Public Safety Officers, schools, postal services, voter registration, homeowners, and inspectors all take the time to report addressing problems they are experiencing. The GIS Office uses every resource possible to perform extensive research including approved site plans, recorded plats, tenant layout plans and historical records to determine the validity of an address.  

By correcting mistakes in the County databases, this assures residents that public safety vehicles will arrive in a timely manner should an emergency situation arise and reduce issues that may occur with other entities that reference a property or business by its legal address.

When addresses are changed, notification is mailed to all property owners involved that are affected by the change. Notification is also sent to County agencies, utility companies and post offices through eNotifications.
