TWIN FALLS COUNTY ADDRESSING STANDARDS

POSTING YOUR CORRECT ADDRESS IS VITAL FOR EMERGENCY RESPONSE PERSONNEL

According to Twin Falls County Resolution No. 2011-13

POSTING OF DESIGNATED ADDRESS NUMBER

The owner or occupant or person in charge of any house, building, mobile home or other structure to which a number has been assigned shall:

· Within 30 days after the receipt or notification of such number, affix the number in a visible place.

· Remove any different number which might be mistaken for or confused with the number assigned by the issuing authority.

· Each principal building or structure shall display the number assigned to the frontage on which the front entrance is located. In case the principal building or structure is occupied by more than one building or structure is occupied by more than one business or family dwelling unit, each separate front entrance shall display a separate number. Where suite or lot numbers are assigned, the suite or lot number shall also be displayed in the same manner as the house number.

· Numerals indicating the official numbers assigned to each principal building, or each front entrance to such building: shall be posted in a manner as to be legible and distinguishable from the street or road on which the property is located, with numbers painted or applied, of not less than two inches (2”) in height.

· Mailboxes shall be marked with the house number.

· If the structure is not visible from the street or road on which it is located, and no mailbox is beside the driveway leading to the structure, a sign or number post shall be erected which will allow the numbers to be displayed either vertically from the top down or horizontally.
