E911 Addressing Frequently Asked Questions:
Does my driveway approach need to be completed in order to apply for an address?
Yes. An E911 address is based on the exact location at which a driveway approach intersects a named road. Thus, the driveway approach must be constructed in order to accurately assign the E911 address.
Can an address be assigned the same day the application is submitted?
If your driveway can be accurately located on aerial imagery, an E911 address may be assigned within a day or two. However, the processing timeline varies due to a multitude of factors such as the number of pending address requests, weather, and other workload items. Therefore, it may take up to a week for an E911 address to be assigned. If your driveway is not visible on aerial imagery, a site visit must be made to collect a GPS coordinate of the driveway location. This GPS coordinate is then entered into a software program that assigns a specific E911 address based on that exact driveway location. If this site visit is needed, it may take longer than one week for your address to be assigned. Ultimately, a property owner should not assume that an E911 address will be assigned the same day the permit application is submitted.
How will I know what my new address will be?
Once the address is assigned, a letter will be sent to you that states the new address.
Who installs the sign at my driveway?
The Hubbard County Highway Department will install the sign. They may place the sign on a wooden lath temporarily until Gopher State One Call locates and marks any underground utilities. The Highway Department will then return to drive a permanent post in the ground. The sign is placed in a specific location per federal E911 standards so it is very important that it never be moved from the installed location.
Can my sign be moved?
No, an E911 sign marks a specific GPS coordinate location for emergency services and its’ designated location is based on federal E911 system standards. Moving an E911 sign from its installed location is a violation of the E911 ordinance and may impede emergency services’ ability to locate your structure during an emergency response. Relocating a sign requires approval from the E911 Administrator, likely a change of the address number as well as a cost for a new sign installation, and the work must be performed by the Highway Department.
What do I do if I move my driveway?
You will need to contact us because moving a driveway typically requires a new address as well as costs for installing a new sign. Your address number is assigned based on the exact location your driveway intersects the road, so moving a driveway means that the number changes.
