If the assigned address is unsatisfactory, the property owner may pursue an address change. Changes can only be granted if they comply with MAG guidelines, city policies, and directives of the United States Postal Service. The following steps must taken to change an existing or recently assigned address.
1. The customer submits an Address Appeal Form (PDF) to the civil permits/water services counter to request a change of address.
2. P&D staff evaluate the request using the customer's rationale as well as MAG guidelines, Fire Department, and Unites States Postal Service input, and begin the address assignment process.
3. If the request is approved, the necessary fees are collected pursuant to the current Fee Schedule/Appendix A.2. of the Phoenix City Code. Approval documentation is created and distributed and records are revised.
