§ 460.01 Title.

[Ord. No. 443, passed 11-12-1997]
This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "Crescent Township 9-1-1 Building Renumbering Ordinance."

§ 460.02 Statement of intent.

[Ord. No. 443, passed 11-12-1997]
In the interest of the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Township, it is the intent (1) to reduce the potential for confusion and/or the erroneous reporting of the addresses of emergencies, on the 9-1-1 System, by eliminating the use of building numbers different from those used for 9-1-1 emergency reporting, and (2) to assist emergency response personnel in locating addresses of reported emergencies, by giving each building within the Township one building number and requiring the conspicuous posting of the building number.

§ 460.03 Buildings renumbered.

[Ord. No. 443, passed 11-12-1997]
All buildings within the Township are hereby renumbered. The new building numbers are those numbers which have been assigned the buildings within the Township for reporting emergencies via the Allegheny County 9-1-1 System.

§ 460.04 Observance.

[Ord. No. 443, passed 11-12-1997]
A. 
Township notice of numbers. The Township will post a list of all new building numbers (which will correspond with 9-1-1 System numbers), cross-referenced with the old building numbers, at the Municipal Building at Spring Run Road and McGovern Boulevard.
B. 
Owner/occupant observance. Within 90 days after the enactment of this ordinance, each owner and occupant of each dwelling or commercial unit shall post the new building number in a location on the property which is conspicuous from the street on which the dwelling or commercial unit fronts, and all former building numbers shall be removed from the property. For purposes of this ordinance, the following will be deemed sufficiently conspicuous:
(1) 
A building number posted on a mailbox which is installed at the intersection of the premises driveway with the street, facing the flow of traffic, with the bottom of the numerals at least two feet four inches from the ground, with individual numerals on a contrasting background at least three inches in height; or
(2) 
A building number posted on the front of the building, visible at all times from the street without obstruction by vegetation, trees or any other objects, with individual block numerals on a contrasting background at least three inches in height; or
(3) 
For a commercial unit, a building number with individual block numerals on a contrasting background at least three inches in height posted on the sign identifying the business occupying the commercial unit, provided that such sign is visible at all times from the street without obstruction by vegetation, trees or any other objects, and further provided that this chapter may not be interpreted to permit the use of signs which do not otherwise comply with the ordinances of the Township relating to the use of signs.
C. 
Enforcement. In the event an owner or occupant fails to post the number of the premises in compliance with this chapter, such failure shall be deemed a violation, and the Secretary is authorized and directed to institute proceedings against such owner or occupant, and upon conviction, such owner or occupant shall be subject to the penalties set forth at § 120.07 of the Codified Ordinances. Each day's violation shall constitute a separate offense.
