Red Deer County residents may have noticed significant fading of their rural address signs or ‘blue signs’. Therefore, as of August 2019, the County has begun a faded sign replacement program that will see Red Deer County replacing any signs that are faded until August 6, 2024.

The replacement program is for residences within the County with addresses created before September 2015, who have not yet had their faded sign replaced.

Signs not eligible under current replacement program are:

  • Addresses for buildings created after September 2015
  • Addresses in Business Parks, Industrial Parks, and Hamlets
  • Addresses that have already been replaced by the County

If you rural address sign is in need of replacement, please contact the County Planning and Development Department via email at with the following information:

  • Name
  • Phone Number
  • Blue sign address that needs replacing

Residents can also call the Planning Desk at 403.350.2170.

Signs will be ordered at the end of the month and delivered to the County office. The County will contact you via phone or email to notify when your sign is available for pick up. Once picked up, installation of the new sign in the correct location is the responsibility of the owner. And once the program is concluded, all sign replacement will be the responsibility of the owner.

Red Deer County appreciates the importance of a highly visible address sign and encourages all residents to ensure their signs are in visible locations and are in good repair.
