A valid street address is required to apply for a building or zoning permit. If your project does not yet have an address, application can be made through Planning and Development Services or by calling (803)545-3400. Addresses within City limits are assigned by the Utilities & Engineering Department in consultation with 911 services.
 

If your property lies outside City limits, contact the appropriate County (Lexington County or Richland County) for their addressing procedure.
