Central Texas Council of Government - 911 Addressing

911 addressing

The City of Lampasas was recently notified by the Central Texas Council of Governments (CTCOG) of some changes that are required for 911 addressing. The state requires all 9-1-1 authorities to maintain an address point file. This file exists so that an exact location can be found in the event of an emergency. The Central Texas Council of Governments is the 9-1-1 addressing authority for The City of Lampasas along with its surrounding 7 counties and 32 cities. CTCOG will begin surveying the city in order to create the address point file for local dispatch. This will require contractors representing CTCOG to visit each address in the city and collect GPS data points for every address.

 During this process, CTCOG may find it necessary to readdress select residential/business addresses if the current addressing does not conform to the 911 addressing requirements. If it is determined that an address may need to be changed, CTCOG will work with the City of Lampasas to minimize the impact this may have or our residents and business owners. 

This is strictly for the safety of the community. If an address does not fall in sequence with the surrounding homes or does not fall within its road range, there is a possibility that the location of the residence/business will not be found in the event of an emergency. For that reason, it is imperative that the location is readdressed. 

CTCOG staff will begin the data collection this week and will continue through the end of March.  Residents may see the CTCOG staff in their neighborhoods and not realize who they are.  If you see a suspicious person/vehicle in your neighborhood, please contact the Lampasas Police Department at 512-556-6235. 

For other questions related to the 911 addressing initiative, please contact Gary Cox, City of Lampasas, Assistant City Manager at 512-556-6831 or CTCOG 911 Addressing at 1-888-889-1910.
