Roads and Addressing
Authority for road naming and addressing transferred from the Augusta Planning & Development Department to the Information Technology GIS Division. This page and its subsequent pages are policies and procedures that have been implemented to become more compliant with industry standards for emergency purposes and adhere to those of USPS for delivery purposes.

- Improve the response time of fire, police, ambulance vehicles and other emergency services;
- Expedite postal and general delivery services and;
- Enhance the ability to locate a business and/or residence based on their address
Self-addressing is not permitted in Augusta Richmond County. Failure to comply or accepting addresses assigned by other agencies who have not received addresses from the GIS Division may be subject to change. Financial and/or legal impacts of address changes are the sole responsibility of the developer, engineer, architect, business or owner.
Please note that Augusta GA IT-GIS is only responsible to maintaining Road and Addresses within the county’s database. Third party vendors like Google, Amazon, GPS Corporations, Bank and Credit Card Companies, Retail and Entertainment websites, and other external companies manage their own addressing database, and we are not able to update these systems.
