  • All numbers shall be at least four inches in height.
  • All persons involved in the curb painting activity must carry a copy of the curb painting permit and business license to make them available for inspection upon request.
  • Do not solicit or market curb painting services at residences or businesses that have posted "No Solicitors," "No Trespassing," or similar signs.
  • If you paint an address number on the curb incorrectly, you must correct it within four business days following notification of the error.
  • Numbers must be either black paint on a white background, or white paint on a black background.
  • Only the address shall be painted on the curb - no street names or other words.
