Since its formation in 1986, the Santa Rosa County Addressing Department has the responsibility of providing and maintaining addresses for all residents and commercial businesses located within Santa Rosa County. The primary goal of the Addressing Department is to follow a systematic and logical approach to ensure a correct address is assigned to each residential or business location. By using a systematic approach to addressing, first responders and emergency personnel are provided with the most accurate and up-to-date address information so they may assist the County's citizens as quickly as possible, even when posted addresses are obscured due to damage or debris from a natural or man-made disaster.
For more information on Santa Rosa County's addressing guidelines, please read the Santa Rosa County Ordinance 86-03 (PDF), known as the Street Naming and Numbering Ordinance. This ordinance includes addressing guidelines and information on the proper posting of address numbers.
