Editor's Note: This bylaw amendment also superseded former Ch. 63, Numbering of Buildings, adopted 3-17-1982 by Bylaw Amendment 82-29.
All persons shall affix to buildings owned by them and located on or near the line of public or private ways the street numbers designated for such buildings by the Town Administrator, and no person shall affix or allow to remain on any building owned by him a street number other than the one designated by the Town Administrator.
All numbers shall be affixed so that they will be plainly visible from the roadway, and any building which is not plainly visible from a roadway shall have at the entrance of its driveway, visible from said roadway, the designated street number.
The assignment of designated numbers shall be made consecutively in ascending order, beginning at the principal street from which the street to be numbered runs. The odd numbers shall be on the right-hand side of said street in the direction of the ascending numbers. The Town Administrator may waive the requirements of this section for any roadway which is already numbered where renumbering in accordance with this section would cause substantial hardship.
Any person violating the provisions of this chapter shall be liable for a fine of $50 for each offense; each day a violation continues shall constitute a separate offense.
The Franklin Police Chief, Fire Chief, and Director of Public Works and their respective designees and the Building Commissioner shall each have authority to enforce the provisions of this chapter.
The Stretch Energy Code, as codified by the Board of Building Regulations and Standards as an appendix to the State Building Code as 780 CMR Appendix 115AA, including any amendments or modifications thereto, has been accepted by the Franklin Town Council by its vote on Bylaw Amendment 17-796 and is incorporated herein by reference.
The Stretch Energy Code is enforceable by the Building Commissioner or his designee.
