Subdivision of land — See Ch. 100.
The street address assigned to any building or lot in the Town of Rush shall be displayed for said lot or building in accordance with the requirements herein. A certificate of occupancy, when one is required, will not be issued unless the street address has been installed in accordance with the requirements herein.
The numbers for the street address shall be Arabic in format with a minimum height of four inches and mounted in a secure fashion to:
A building's front wall; or
A building's front porch; or
A post in the front yard of the lot.
The street address shall be displayed near the main entrance or near the travel way leading to the main entrance of the building or lot.
All street addresses shall be mounted at a height between four feet and 10 feet above the adjacent grade, street or exterior porch landing, directly beneath but never higher than 15 feet above the adjoining grade. They shall be legible as to contrasting background, arrangement, spacing, size and uniformity of the whole so that the numbers may be read with ease during daylight hours, by a person possessing at least 20/40 vision, as he views the numbers from the center line of the facing street and at an elevation of five feet above the finished surface thereof. Trees, shrubs and other obstructions shall not block said street numbers.
Builders or developers of new structures shall post a temporary sign on the site conforming to this chapter displaying the assigned street address and lot number, if applicable.
The absence of house numbers, or the insecure fastening or absence of any whole number thereof, or the use of any number out of logical sequence for the street toward which it faces or the failure of a number to meet the elevation requirements shall be considered a violation of this chapter.
Final authority for determining and assigning the number or numbers to be used upon any particular premises is vested in the Assessor.
In case the owner of property does not place said numbers and/or remove all other numbers within 30 days after service of a notice to do so, the Building Inspector is hereby directed to place said numbers and/or remove all other numbers and to charge therefor a fee of $15, which sum to be collected from the owner pursuant to the provision of the law.
