A stamped, approved site plan from the appropriate planning authority is required prior to address assignments. The appropriate planning authority
could be either the Charlotte- Mecklenburg Planning Commission, other Town Planning Department, or in the case of a MUDD/UMUD plan, City Engineering. Addresses will be based on the front door or main public access into the building. Any revisions to approved plans could impact address assignments and need to be submitted for our review. Changes may require planning approvals prior to obtaining revised addresses.
If you are creating new streets or a subdivision of property, the procedure is the same as for residential sites. Otherwise, a site plan showing the
building location and driveway(s) is needed to accurately assign the correct address. CD (Conditional Zoning) plans may require CMPC approval before addresses can be released. The address will be based on the main vehicular access.
Plans should be submitted to the Land Records/Addressing Counter in advance of the need to schedule plan reviews or apply for building permits.
Turnaround time for address assignments varies according to the volume of plans received and size of the projects. The average is at least a week to 10 working days. Planning ahead for addressing requests will avoid unnecessary delays.
The Mecklenburg County Air Pollution Control Ordinance requires that air permit applications include a Zoning Determination to ensure that a proposed
facility is consistent with applicable zoning requirements. The Zoning Determination must be obtained from the local government(s) having land use jurisdiction over the land on which a proposed air pollution facility and its appurtenances are to be located and must be signed by the official(s) charged with administering the respective zoning and subdivision ordinances.
