By virtue of the power and authority conferred by the statute, in such case made and provided (N.J.S.A. 40:67-1j, as amended), a system of numbering all buildings and lots of land in this municipality is hereby adopted.
All dwelling houses, stores or other buildings erected within the Borough of Stanhope shall be numbered in conformity with the street numbers on the Tax and Assessment Maps of the borough filed in the office of the Tax Assessor of the Borough of Stanhope.
The owner of any dwelling house, store or other building incorrectly or improperly or insufficiently numbered shall be notified in writing, by the Tax Assessor or such other person so designated by the governing body, to change or replace such incorrect or improper number or to affix a number where one is lacking within 10 days after the date of such notice.
Upon any subdivision or resubdivision of land in the Borough of Stanhope resulting in a lot or lots other than those numbered on the Tax and Assessment Maps, the Tax Assessor shall, within 30 days after final approval thereof, assign a number to each lot resulting from said subdivision or resubdivision, which number shall be in proper numerical sequence in relation to the number assigned to other lots fronting on the same street, and he shall record the same upon said map and notify the owner of said property of the numbers so assigned.
The number so assigned to each building shall be displayed by the owner or occupant on the front of the building or in the front yard of the lot on which the same stands in numerals of such size, not less than three inches in height, and so located as to be clearly visible to persons passing by the premises on the abutting street.
No certificate of occupancy shall be issued for occupancy of any building hereafter erected or enlarged unless the provisions of the foregoing section shall have been complied with.
Upon application by the owner of any property in the Borough of Stanhope to the Tax Assessor, the Tax Assessor shall furnish such owner with the correct number of such property.
