CODE COMPLIANCE INITIATIVE

BUILDING/HOUSE NUMBERS DISPLAYED

Making sure help (police, fire, ambulance, etc.) knows where to find you is very important when seconds count.  Help Emergency Responders protect you and your family in the event of an emergency; by making sure your address is visible.  Emergency Responders can locate you quicker when they can easily find your address.

Give your structure proper identification… By posting the address in the correct location you allow delivery services, postal services, and utility service providers to find you quicker as well.  Without the address properly posted these services may not be able to find you and may even refuse service.

City Code requires that all buildings shall have address numbers, building numbers or building identification in a position that is plainly legible and visible from the street or road fronting the property.  The numbers shall contrast with their background.  Address numbers should be in Arabic numbers or alphabetical letters.  Numbers shall be a minimum of four (4”) inches high with a minimum stroke width of one half (½”) inch.  Where access is by means of a private road and the building address cannot be viewed from the public way, a monument, pole or other sign or means shall be used to identify the structure.

HELPFUL TIPS FOR DISPLAYING ADDRESSES

  • House numbers should be displayed on the building itself and in a prominent and conspicuous place, so as to be legible from the street.
  • All numbers should be a minimum of four (4”) inches high with a minimum stroke width of one half (½”) inch.
  • When practical, the numbers should be placed near a light so that they may be readily seen at night.If the numbers are not illuminated, they should be reflective.
  • The colors of the numbers should be in sharp contrast to the color of their background.
  • Numbers are easier to read displayed horizontally, not vertically.
  • Make sure the numbers are not blocked/covered by trees, vines, or other vegetation.
