In the case where the principal structure is not clearly visible from the street or is more than 75 feet from the edge of the road right-of-way, a post with the property numbers displayed upon it, not to exceed five feet in height, shall be installed in close proximity to the property access, no less than five feet nor greater than 25 feet from the edge of the road right-of-way. All numbers must be visible from the street, away from shrubs, fences and trees.

All numbers shall be Arabic in design only, with a minimum of five inches in height, and shall sharply contrast in color from the structure.
