Reflective Address Signs
Properly Posting Your Address Number
If you live in Livingston County’s townships, your address number should be placed on a sign:
- Reflective, white numbers being three-inches in height
- Letters displayed on a green background
- A sign posted at least five feet high above the grade of the roadway
- The sign may be mounted to a post OR a mailbox
- The sign must be plainly visible from the either direction of approach to your driveway
- The sign must be adjacent to the driveway it services
Purchasing a Reflective Sign
The materials to make a green reflective sign can be purchased at a local hardware store. They can also be ordered from a sign company.

Why Proper Address Posting Is Important
- Emergency responders can only help you when they find your location.
- Posting your address number provides easy identification of your location for responders who are not always exactly familiar with your area.
- Every second counts during an emergency and posting your address number allows emergency responders to save critical time especially in reaching rural parts of Livingston County.
- Homes are often hidden from view at the beginning of the driveway, only posting numbers on your home does not help responders recognize where you live since they must first turn down your driveway to find your home.
- Livingston County’s resident population continues to increase rapidly and an increasing population means responders are required to find new subdivisions and home sites every day.
- Posting your address on a reflective sign is required by the Livingston County Addressing Ordinance.
