Service addresses are assigned by the local addressing authority. Travis County entered into an inter-local agreement to have City of Austin Address Management Services to assign service addresses for the city proper, unincorporated Travis County, and a number of other municipalities within the county.
When new subdivisions are recorded, and after the plats have been delivered to Address Management Services, addresses are assigned to each lot. Un-subdivided parcels are assigned addresses on a case-by-case basis.
Additionally, our staff can help you verify the correct address for your property or development. You can view addressing information such as the jurisdiction, Council District, annexation history, and building/unit designators by using our Jurisdictions Web Map. Instructions on how to use the Jurisdictions Web Map are below.
