Citing public safety concerns and the need for helping first responders find a location quicker, there’s a new ordinance now in effect in Camden County. That’s according to Captain Chris Twitchel in the Sheriff’s Department who says the ordinance requires addresses to be posted, and visible, from on the different structures. Several other requirements are part of the new ordinance including:
- the letters or numbers must be at least four inches on residential structures and six inches on commercial structures,
- the address must also be posted at the end of the driveway if the structure is not visible from the roadway
- the numbers must be of a contrasting color to the background they are posted on.
Violations of the addressing ordinance, if not taken care of within 60 days from the date of notification, could cost violators no less than $75 and no more than $500 per day.
