9-1-1 Addressing Office

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


Please allow 10-14 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.


ALL "NEW" DRIVEWAYS OFF OF A COUNTY ROAD OR TXDOT ROAD MUST BE APPROVED BY THE COUNTY COMMISSIONER FOR THAT ROAD OR TXDOT BEFORE AN ADDRESS WILL BE ASSIGNED.  If you need driveway approval off of a County Road please fill out this form here DRIVEWAY/ACCESS APPLICATION and contact your County Commissioner for further instructions.  If you need driveway approval on a state road such as an Farm to Market, Ranch Rd, or Highway please contact Chris Hall, with TxDOT at or 512-715-5708 for approval instructions.  Your signed approval letter must be submitted along with your address application. 

To apply for a 911 Address please follow these steps:
STEP 1:  Fill out this 9-1-1 Address Request Form.  It is a fillable pdf that you will download or save to your PC, Tablet, or Phone.  Fill the form out and SAVE it to make sure you don't send a blank document.  (THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS APPLICATION IS THE CAD PROPERTY ID AND THE LEGAL DESCRIPTION)  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: ; information like LEGAL DESCRIPTION and PROPERTY ID. 


STEP 2:  We MUST see where your driveway will be located and how far off the road your structure will be located.  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.) 

There following methods will suffice:

  • 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.

Once you have your drawing you are ready for the next step.

STEP 3:   Email the form into our office with the drawing/map showing your proposed/existing driveway and structure.  The email address you will send it in to is on the Address Request Form .  You may also mail the form and drawing in to our office at the mailing address above.  Allow 7 - 14 business 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).
