The system of numbering all buildings and lots of land in the Borough shown on a map consisting of 15 separate sheets or pages, entitled "Existing Conditions; Borough of Essex Fells, Essex County, New Jersey Planning Board," dated April 30, 1935, prepared by Allen H. Summerville, C.E., revised May 1960 for house numbering by Leigh W. Morrill, Borough Engineer, and further revised June 1989 by Harold Ratzburg, Borough Engineer, providing a number for all buildings and lots in the Borough and made a part of this chapter, is adopted and the number shown thereon for each building or lot is assigned to that building or lot.
Upon any subdivision or resubdivision of land in the Borough resulting in a lot or lots other than those delineated on said map, the Borough Engineer shall within 30 days after final approval thereof assign a number to each lot resulting from the subdivision or resubdivision which 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 the map and notify the owner of the 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 but 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 compliance shall be issued for occupancy of any building hereafter erected or enlarged unless the provisions of the foregoing section have been complied with.
