New Addresses / Properties

Address Assignments

The Public Works Permits Division assigns all new addresses within the City limits. All new construction must apply for an address, even if the empty lot or former building is already using an address. The previous address must be verified with the layout of the new building and the City's grid system.

Obtaining an Address for a New Commercial Building

The first step in the approval process for new commercial construction is to obtain a temporary address for the building. The address is considered "temporary" until all plans are finalized and all Public Works permits are issued and paid. Applicants will be required to submit a preliminary site plan including the layout of the building on the lot and the location of the front door.

Obtaining an Address for a New Residential Building

An updated address must be issued prior to obtaining building permits. Even if the lot has already been assigned an address, any new residential construction must submit an address-permits request form so that permits may be issued.

Applicants must submit a completed application (DOC) and an 8.5-inch-by-11-inch site plan.

Site Plan Requirements:

  • Building layout with lot lines including the location of the front door
  • The location of any storm sewer inlets located along the frontage
  • Utility easements
  • Location and width of driveway and sidewalks

Once the address request is received, the issued address along with any Public Works permit information will be sent to the Building Inspections Department.

Please allow two business days for review and then contact Building Inspections for the next step in the permitting process. The applicant will not be contacted by Public Works once the application is processed unless the address and permits are issued earlier than the allotted period.
