  • If my address is changed for any reason, how long can I use my previous address?
  • Upon receiving a new 911 address, residents will have one year to complete all address changes before the USPS will discontinue delivery to the previous address.
  • How do I obtain an address for new construction or a new mobile home?
  • When you or your contractor pull permits for construction etc. the building department will direct you to our office. We will fill out the attached addressing application and give you a signed dated copy to keep with the rest of your permits. Our data collector will go out to the property and obtain a GPS point for us to use in assigning your address. You will not be given a Certificate of Occupancy nor will the power be turned on until your address is properly posted at your new home.

        Number Sizes: (inches)
        Residential: 4" or larger
