Reflective Address Signs

For safety, your address should be clearly visible from the street. If your building cannot easily be viewed from the public roadway, an address sign needs to be placed near the roadway for identification purposes. The new State of Michigan fire code requires address numbers at least 4 inches high. The Township offers reflective green address signs for $10 that meet this requirement: Reflective Sign Order Form.
