Martinsville, Ind. – September 1, 2016 – Martinsville property owners are reminded all buildings must be numbered either on the side, entrance or immediately over the door in neat, plain numerals no smaller than two inches square, according to Martinsville City Code 14-145.

According to Building and Planning Inspector Brian Love, buildings must be accurately and appropriately numbered most importantly for quick identification by public safety personnel in the event of an emergency. Residents could save their own lives by properly displaying the numbers, with reflective numbers recommended.

“Having your home or business properly identified with the accurate numerical address satisfies an important responsibility of being a property owner. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in making sure their house and other properties are in compliance,” Love said.

Per City ordinance, it is unlawful to display incorrect house numbers.
