Oconee County Addressing Office is the only agency in Oconee County that can assign and verify an address for any purpose.

The purpose of an E-911 address is to assure that responses to emergencies are as timely and efficient as possible. Therefore, addresses are assigned based on the placement of driveways (or other access points), and not the location of the “front” of a structure. However, it is the responsibility of the home owner to post house numbers in such a position as to be plainly visible and legible from the street or road fronting the property. To minimize confusion for emergency responders, whenever possible, the assignment of address numbers is based on a standardized distance separation formula.

It is sometimes necessary to change an assigned address. The reasons an address may change include, but are not limited to:

  • An address issued to a vacant parcel does not correspond with the location of a new drive way
  • The addition of new occupied structures on a parcel
  • Relocation of an existing driveway
  • Subdivision of a parcel
  • Insufficient sequential address numbers to accommodate new development on a road
  • Any address related issue that causes confusion and potentially delays a timely and efficient emergency response

As they are subject to change, utilizing address numbers for property identification on legal documents is not advised.

New addresses must be requested in writing. An address request form may be obtained in the Community Development Office; or on the county website.

Completed forms may be dropped off at the Community Development Office, sent by postal mail, submitted online or faxed to 864-638-4168.

If you have questions, please feel free to give us a call at 864-638-4251.
