9-1-1 Addressing Office

     **This page will walk you through the basics of applying for a 9-1-1 Address**


Please allow 14-21 BUSINESS DAYS for all addressing requests to be processed. This includes address assignments, changes, verifications, & letter replacements.

Burnet County does not assign 9-1-1 Addresses to vacant lots or undeveloped properties; only STRUCTURES or DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS.  If you are ready to have utilities installed, or plan to start building your structure within the next six months, you may apply for an address.


You must have a 9-1-1 Address to apply for Burnet County building/septic permits. 
Only the property owner or owner's agent may apply for a 9-1-1 Address.


*If you have recently purchased a PORTION of a seller's property, please submit a copy of the seller's approved Exemption or Variance Form with your application. *(See below: Subdivision Regulations - under Helpful Links & the link to the Variance/Exemption Form.)*



For COUNTY ROAD driveway approval fill out this form: DRIVEWAY/ACCESS APPLICATION, and contact your County Commissioner to schedule inspection. Click this link to open a Burnet County PRECINCT MAP. (Click the colored box in the legend in the bottom right hand corner that corresponds to your commissioner to email them regarding Driveway Approval.) 

For driveway approval on a Farm to Market (FM), Ranch Rd (RR), or State Highway (SH) please contact Chris Hall, with TxDOT at or 512-715-5708.  


To apply for a 911 Address please follow these steps:
STEP 1:  Fill out this 9-1-1 Address Request Form using your PC, tablet, or phone. Be sure to SAVE the completed application to make sure you don't send a blank document. Most of the information you will need to fill the form out can be found on your Tax Statement or on the Burnet Central Appraisal District's website under the Property Search at this link: . Applications that are missing the PROPERTY ID will NOT be processed.


STEP 2:  We MUST see where your driveway will be located and where your structure will sit with respect to the driveway and property lines. If your property fronts more than one street, please indicate which street the main entry of your structure faces. This image submission is REQUIRED. Your application will not be processed if this information is missing. (A photograph of your gate or driveway will not be accepted as it does not provide any useful reference to property boundaries.) 

Recommendations for IMAGES:

  • a.  You can use a copy of a survey and hand draw the driveway and proposed structure.
  • b.  You can use Google Earth to create a map with actual flags and markers. 
  • c.  You can use the MAP for your property on the Burnet CAD and draw the driveway/structure.
  • d.  You can hand draw the entire thing.
  • e. A photograph of your gate or driveway will NOT be accepted as it does not provide any useful reference to property boundaries. 

STEP 3:   Email the form and your image to the Addressing Coordinator. The email address you will send it in to is on the Address Request Form:

You may also mail the APPLICATION and IMAGE in to our office at the mailing address above.  Allow 14-21 days for us to process your request.  (IF YOU DO NOT FILL OUT THE APPLICATION COMPLETELY OR PROVIDE AN IMAGE, THE PROCESS WILL TAKE LONGER).
