The Garrett County Addressing Ordinance was adopted in 1994. Addresses will be assigned to structures only, and are generally applied for as part of the building permit process. The county uses a mile based addressing system with an address struck every 10.5 feet, even and odd numbers on opposite sides of the street. The towns and municipalities assign their own addresses and use a different system. If a building permit is applied for within town limits, the town will assign the address for that application.
Garrett County Mapping is conducted by the county’s GIS Specialist. GIS data including but not limited to photography, topography, hydrography, planimetric features, parcels and zoning is available for a fee upon request in various formats. Note that there are kml links provided below to assist with ordering data products. Mapping is created upon request for a fee as well. The maps below are provided as a service to the general public.
