Why did my address change?
The Burleson County Addressing Coordinator may require the owner or occupant of a property to change an address for one of, but not limited to, the following reasons:
- Out of sequence with respect to your neighbors. Addresses need to progress in sequence along the road.
- Odd number address on even side of the road or even number address on the odd side of the road.
- Your house is on a private drive with 3 or more other structures accessed off that same private drive.
- The road name/number designation has been changed.
- Your address had to change as the result of other address changes.
- The location of your driveway changed.
Why doesn’t my 911 address come up on Google, Google Earth, Garmin, delivery services, or other software correctly?
BVCOG is the central location for addressing within our 7 county region. Burleson County’s mapping information is sent to BVCOG weekly. Companies such as Google and other commercial GPS services can reach out to BVCOG for current mapping and GIS data, readily available to retrieve, including mapping for Burleson County. It is the responsibility of those agencies to update their databases with the provided information.
In addition, BVCOG 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.
Burleson County does not send mapping or addressing information directly to Google or other GPS services.
What can you do to try to get your 911 address placement correct on Google, Google Earth, Garmin, FedEx, etc.?
First, confirm your 911 address with our office at 979-567-2007. Once you have confirmed your address, you might choose to look your address up on whichever service you prefer to use. Many of them have a way to use their interactive tools on their website to enter your corrected address and/or location. They do not confirm this with our office directly, nor are they required to share this correction with any other company.
Another option is to visit https://www.gps.gov/support/user/mapfix/.This government website will walk you through the process in plain simple language to make corrections with commercial map providers like TomTom, Garmin, or Google, as well as Android phones.
