My Commercial Building needs suite numbers. How do I get them assigned?

Cherokee County GIS understands that it is sometimes difficult to predict how many suites will be included in a completed building. In order to ease the process, Cherokee County provides guidelines for you to assign your suite numbers based on your final build out.

This system was implemented in order to simplify and expedite the delivery of civic services like Emergency Response and Postal Delivery. It is highly recommended that you follow the guidelines laid out in the following documents and ensure that all suite numbers have a high level of visibility from the front of your building.
