    5. a blade sign shall be mounted perpendicular to the private road or highway and clear of all obstructions so that it is visible when approaching from either direction;
    6. a blade sign shall be located at a minimum height above grade of 1.2 m;
    7. if the support structure obstructs visibility of one side of the sign, one blade sign per side on the structure is required;
    8. permanent blade sign posts shall be installed a minimum of 0.9 m in the ground; and
    9. in addition to meeting the requirements in d. through f., a temporary blade sign and post must be of durable material, installed and sufficiently stabilized to retain its vertical orientation, and the civic number displayed on the sign must be visible from the private road or highway when approaching from either direction.

  6. Where, in the opinion of the Director, the location of the building on a lot is such that the civic numbering display requirements outlined in this Schedule are inadequate with respect to the visibility of the civic number from the private road or highway, the Director may impose additional requirements relating to the visibility of the civic number to ensure efficient wayfinding and public safety.
