Any road with an official road name must be marked with a sign that is clearly visible and legible from the road. Road signs can be obtained from any sign vendor. The vendor must meet the county road sign specification M-4, which can be obtained from the Department of Public Works. If the road is maintained by the County, the road signs must consist of white lettering on a green background. For roads not maintained by the County, the signs must consist of green lettering on a white background.
The purchase and placement of road signs are the responsibility of the subdivider when a road is created a subdivision of land.
The purchase and placement of road name signs for all other roads are the responsibility of the party(ies) requesting the road name (applicant). If the road is maintained by the County, the road name signs will be maintained by the County. If the road is maintained by another agency (road maintenance agreement, homeowner’s association, community service district, etc.) the signs will be maintained by that entity.
If the road is not maintained by either the County or another agency, the road name signs must be maintained by the applicant.
Road name signs must be placed outside of the public right-of-way.
