Columbia residents and businesses are required to display street numbers. “Periodically, we need to be reminded that street numbers are important and are required,” stated town manager Rhett White.
Town ordinance requires that the street numbers be clearly visible and displayed in a conspicuous place on the front of all primary buildings on a property. The numbers should be in a color and size legible enough to be seen by the public from the street in front of the building. The minimum size of the number in Arabic numerals should be at least four (4) inches high.
Street numbers are necessary to provide effective law enforcement, emergency services and other public services within the town. They are especially important during natural disasters such as the flooding. Residents and businesses failing to display the numbers may face a fine.
