Why can’t I find my address on Google or a commercial GPS device?
CTCOG has current mapping and GIS data readily available for these companies to retrieve, free of charge. It is the responsibility of those agencies to update their databases with our provided information. If you have additional questions, please contact the customer service department of the corresponding agency.
Why are UPS, USPS, and FedEx not delivering to my house?
CTCOG sends weekly data updates to the Regional Postmaster, which includes address changes or additions. However, mail services such as UPS, USPS, and FedEx are responsible for contacting the Regional Postmaster to retrieve updated or new data. If you have additional questions, please contact the customer service department of the corresponding agency.
Why did my address change?
There are a multitude of reasons that your address may change, but all of those reasons ultimately lead to ensuring public safety. CTCOG has been designated by the State of Texas as the 9-1-1 addressing authority for the Central Texas region. Our subject matter experts review GIS data to provide a consistent addressing standard, which includes the numerical prefixes and roadway names. Historically, there were no addressing standards so occasionally established addresses must be changed to correlate with the improved model so that in the event of an emergency responders can reference surrounding markers to identify what the location of the emergency is.
You may be told that your address will require a Private Road label. If your driveway is .25 mile long or more, and/or there are two or more structures sharing the driveway, it qualifies as a Private Road and must be approved by the precinct’s County Commissioner. Commissioners Court occurs regularly each month and a member of the CTCOG 9-1-1 addressing staff will attend to have pending inquiries approved.
If a 9-1-1 Specialist is unable to receive your call, please leave a message and the call will be returned within two business days. Every effort will be made to process the address request within fifteen (15) business days, unless further information is required. While we try to assign all new addresses within 15 calendar days, sometimes we are unable to meet this timeline. In such cases CTCOG staff will reach out to the requestor to remedy any issues in a timely manner.
