The County, like many other counties in North Carolina, does not address vacant property. An address will be assigned once a building permit for a residence has been obtained.
The County started assigning addresses in 1990 for the Emergency 911 system and the postal service adopted the same addresses for mailing purposes as well.
Posting an address is essential to responders locating you in an emergency when time is important and it's the law in Randolph County.
The Randolph County Unified Development Ordinance contains the address posting standards for structures in the County zoning jurisdiction.
You can continue getting your mail at the post office box although you must also post your E-911 address on your structure as well at the driveway if needed.
There are pre-determined address points every 20 feet on each side of a road and an address is based on the actual driveway location.
Changing an address is always our last option. However, there are situations that require an address change to maintain the accuracy of E-911 response such as road changes made by NCDOT, driveway location changes and occasional inaccuracies found by improved technology.
We understand the people do not like being told what to do. Address numbers are important in an emergency. If you do not post your address or refuse to change your address due to an error, etc., you are placing yourself and your neighbors at risk. It's a $500.00 a day fine for not posting your address or refusing to change your address.
Call the Addressing Coordinator at 336-318-6552 or send an email to Addressing.

Rabies is a deadly virus caused by a virus. The virus is found in the saliva of a rabid animal and can be transmitted by a bite, or possibly by saliva contamination of an open cut or the eyes.
In NC, rabies is found commonly in raccoons, skunks, red and grey foxes, coyotes, wolves, groundhogs and beavers. Bats can also transmit rabies.
Any mammal can become infected with rabies. The virus can infect domestic pets, agricultural animals such as cows and horses, and people when they are exposed to rabid wildlife.
Rabid animals may not always exhibit symptoms. Some rabid animals may act mad or strange while others may act timid or shy. A wild animal with rabies may move slowly or act tame. Since a wild animal is not tame and usually run away from people, maintain your distance and do not approach them. Also, avoid petting stray cats or dogs.
The only way to know for sure if an animal or a person has rabies is through laboratory tests.
If you see an animal that is acting strange, call Randolph County Animal Control at 336-683-8235 for assistance.
Isolate the bat to one room and close the door. The bat needs to be tested for rabies. Call animal control at 336-683-8235 to capture the bat for testing.
