[ARCHIVED] House Numbers on Curb NOT Required

The City of Liberty has received several phone calls regarding solicitations to paint house numbers on the curb. This is not a City-sponsored project nor is it required by City Code.  The Liberty Fire and Police departments do encourage home owners to ensure that their house number is clearly visible. If an emergency happened while you were at home, would the emergency responders be able to quickly identify your house? 

Here's a test to find out: The next time you are driving back to your house, see how close you have to be before you can clearly see the house numbers. Take the time to do it from both directions. Then repeat the test at night. If you are closer than the edge of your property before you can see the numbers then you should change the housenumbers. 

Fire safety experts recommend that your house numbers should be: 
  • Larger than 4" high In a contrasting color to their background
  • Block letters as opposed to cursive (cursive numbers are difficult to read from the street)
  • Mounted in a conspicuous place such as near the front door
  • Free from view obstruction from trees, shrubs, or other ornamental fixtures
