Requirements for Obtaining a New Physical Address
The County upon request will issue an address to any lot, parcel, agricultural buildings and any other structure.
Placement and Size of Address Numbers
It is the property owner’s responsibility to have the new address properly displayed. If the property has a mailbox directly in front of the structure, your address number must be displayed with at least 3” numbers on both sides of the mailbox, using contrasting or reflective material. You must also display your address on your house or business, or on a sign at the entrance to your property using at least 3” numbers.
Where to Obtain Reflective Signs
Many Volunteer Fire Departments in the county make the reflective address sign as a fund raiser. You can contact any of the following departments for more information:
