The owner or occupant of all structures assigned a street number shall display such number in a prominent place on the structure, facing the road upon which the number is assigned at least four feet from the ground. If the structure is not easily visible from the street, an additional street number shall be provided on a permanent sign or plate located on the lot near the street at least four feet from the ground for good visibility. All such numbers shall be at least four inches in height, constructed of durable material, and shall be of a color which contrasts with the background upon which they are located.

Street numbers placed on mail boxes or written on curbs shall not satisfy the requirements of this section.
