The Snyder County GIS Department and 911, United States Postal Service, and your local municipality have undertaken the assignment of city-style addressing that conforms to the NENA standard for 911 addressing, for properties within Snyder County.
This project intends to provide quicker response to your location in the event of an emergency as well as fulfill the requirement of having a standardized city-style addressing schema throughout the county.
We have established the following process for assigning new addresses. First, the resident requesting the address is required to fill out the request form below and submit to the GIS Department. Once the request is received, GIS software is used to assign the address. This will include the use of aerial imagery and digital tools that measure the length of the road segments in relationship to the location of the driveway or entrance to the property. This will accurately assign a standardized number to the structure.
The new address and changes to existing addresses are updated and input to several different systems such as the tax assessment database, USPS database and the 911 centers for emergency dispatch. Please make sure your contact information is complete and accurate so that we can contact you.
Once you have submitted your request, we will contact you to confirm the details of your request and give you your assigned address.
If you have questions concerning your new or existing address you may contact the GIS Office, (570) 374-5290 or (570) 524-8739.
