[Adopted 6-1-1970 by L.L. No. 1-1970]
In areas designated under the Zoning Ordinance as Multifamily Residence Districts, or in areas where nonconforming multifamily residences exist, and in which there are interior streets, roadways or driveways which, if obstructed by the parking of motor vehicles, will cause or create a condition that is dangerous to life or property in the event of a fire or will cause interference with the ingress and egress of fire-fighting equipment, such interior streets, roadways or driveways shall be designated as fire zones.
In any fire zones, the Fire Chief or Assistant Fire Chief and the Police Chief are hereby empowered to designate certain sections of fire zones as restricted areas, and such restricted areas shall be marked with standard police signs and markings indicating that said area is a restricted fire zone. Parking of motor vehicles in said restricted areas is hereby prohibited. Said signs and markings shall be installed at the expense of the owner of the property who shall promptly pay to the Village Treasurer the actual cost thereof as certified, in writing, to said Village Treasurer by the Fire Chief, Assistant Fire Chief or Police Chief. Notwithstanding and not in limitation of any other provision hereof, no motor vehicle shall be parked within 20 feet of any fire hydrant or standpipe located at, on or near any interior street, roadway or driveway within any premises designated under the Zoning Ordinance as a multiple residence district or in areas where nonconforming multiple family residences exist.
