Every owner, occupant, or agent within thirty (30) days after the effective date of the assignment of a house number, shall install permanently on such premises the number issued, subject to the following provisions:

(a) Accessory buildings need not be numbered but, if located on a separate unit of frontage, may be assigned numbers if requested by the owner or proprietor of the principal establishment to which such building or buildings are accessory.

(b) All such numbers shall be placed so as to be easily visible and legible from the road upon which said premises front. When the house is some distance from a public road, numbers shall be placed on a mail box or on a post. When the mail box is on a road other than the road on which said premises front, then the house number and road name shall be shown on the mail box.

(c) The numbers shall be a size not less than three inches (3") in height, except on mail boxes, in which case the numbers shall be of a size not less than one inch (1") in height.

(d) Written notice of the proposed house number assignment shall be mailed by the Planning Department to the person or persons to whom the house is assessed at the address for such person or persons shown on the last equalized assessment roll. Within thirty (30) days after the effective date of the assignment of a house number, the owner, occupant, or agent shall remove or obscure from public view any old or previous number not in accordance with the system.

(e) Premises not serviced by mail delivery will be issued house numbers for convenience and safety of residents, who may continue to use post office boxes as a mailing address. (Ord. 1044, § 6, 8/19/1975; Ord. 1509, § 1, 2/2/1982)
