Frequently Asked Questions about Residential Addresses
How do I get an address for a house that I own or am planning to build?:
Call Cherokee County GIS Office to request an application form or download it from the Forms & Documents link
Provide a copy of your parcel's survey, or a tax map with the parcel highlighted. You can make your own custom map here. For commercial structures, submit a building plan.
You can email the application to us, fax it to 678.550.0017 or mail it to Cherokee County GIS Department 1130 Bluffs Pkwy Canton, GA 30114.
The GIS Staff will assign the appropriate street number for your property. Please allow 3 days for processing.
Cherokee County GIS will email, fax, or mail your completed application form back to you with your new address.
How do I change an address?
If your address is out of sequence for your road, or building plans change the access to your property, call Cherokee County GIS at 678.493.6050 or email us.
A readdressing application will be processed for you and all appropriate county agencies will be notified on your behalf.

These sites purchase their data from commercial vendors. The County has no control over the data that they present. You can follow these links (use at your own risk, Cherokee County does not endorse, use or maintain these sites) to update your address with those vendors. Yahoo and Mapquest use Navteq. Google Maps use TeleAtlas.
