We can't find you if we can't see your address!

Per PBC code, address numbers need to be 6" high for residences and 8" high for businesses.

If the address is on a post or mailbox at the street, it should be clearly visible from both directions and clear of brush, overgrowth, or other obstructions.

If the address is on a building, it should be clearly visible from the street. If the building is too far away from the street, then an address sign should be placed at the street.
