UPDATE on 9-1-1 physical address changes

 The Greenbrier County addressing project is nearing the end of the postal conversion phase for the new physical addresses. By now, many residents have received their change of address notice in the mail from the United States Postal Service. There are only 2 mailing routes that need to be finished and that should take place right after the first of the year.

 To answer some questions that have been asked pertaining to this change and to clear up any confusion, please note the following:

  • Every resident and business owner with a mailing address in Greenbrier County will be issued a new 9-1-1 physical address.
  • If you have a rural route address/mail delivery at your home (ex. RR 1 Box 15 or HC 81 Box 100):  Your new 9-1-1 physical address replaces the route and box number or current street address for all mail.
  • If you have a PO Box: This change DOES NOT affect you receiving your mail at the Post Office box and you may continue using your PO Box address. Your new physical address is simply your new house number. Please post this number on your residence to ensure a timely response in the event of a 9-1-1 emergency.
  • Address numbers are assigned based on distance as well as which side of the road you live on, not necessarily where your mailbox is located. Numbers are assigned every 5.28 feet which yields 1000 numbers per mile. This interval chosen gives meaning to the new address. For example, 3746 Mountain Rd is located approximately 3.7 miles from the beginning of Mountain Rd. Numbers will not be consecutive to allow for future development.
  • This is a Statewide as well as National system which all communities in the US are either implementing or have already done so in the past.
  • Once you receive your new address notice in the mail from the postal service, you will have a period of ONE YEAR to make any changes on mail, utility bills, drivers license, etc.
  • Even though you may already have a "city-style" or street address, if the existing number does not meet these new standards, then the address will need to be corrected and changed to meet these new guidelines.
  • After the conversion phase is completed, the 9-1-1 address data will then be submitted to other third-party agencies that will then in turn update their records to show your new address; examples include Google Maps, Bing, car GPS units, etc. The timeline for  when these changes will be shown on said sources is unknown at this time.


 

The 9-1-1 Center  appreciates your cooperation in this massive change. By creating these addresses, we can ensure that our citizens receive the full benefit of 9-1-1 services by having emergency response agencies know precisely where help is needed.  Lives and property of citizens in our community will be saved.

With the changes in the final phase the Addressing Department is very busy, if you have question please call 304-520-4958 and leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patients.
