[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Brockport 8-3-1964. Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall be known as "The Driveway Ordinance of the Village of Brockport."
The purpose of this chapter shall be to regulate the installation of driveway entrances in and to Village streets, and the paving of driveways between Village streets to and across sidewalks.
No new driveway shall be connected to a Village street, nor may an existing driveway entrance be changed or enlarged, nor may a Village curb be allowed or removed, without a permit therefor.
No driveway shall be paved between a Village street and the edge of the sidewalk most distant from said street nor may the grade or paving of existing driveways in such area be changed without a permit therefor.
For the purposes of this chapter, "paving" shall include the application or installation of any concrete, cement, tar, bituminous, asphalt or similar material.
Public sidewalks on any street in the Village, or fronting on any street in the Village or parallel to any street in the Village, shall continue to be regulated by the Sidewalk Ordinance of the Village of Brockport, adopted May 4, 1908. A "Village street" shall be defined as any street, road or highway maintained by the Village, county or state, lying in the Village of Brockport.
No public sidewalk shall be covered or constructed of any paving material other than cement or flagstone, and no driveway paved with other substances shall be extended over such sidewalks so as to cover the cement or flagstone sidewalk.
Application for permits hereunder shall be made to the Village Superintendent of Streets, who shall issue said permit after inspection or review of the site. The Superintendent shall determine the grades and sizes of driveways and may impose conditions of construction to ensure compliance with ordinances, stormwater drainage and traffic safety. If the Superintendent is absent or unavailable, the Village Clerk shall act in his stead.
In the event that any sidewalk is paved in a manner other than as prescribed by the ordinances of this Village, such sidewalk shall be deemed in disrepair and the sidewalk may be repaired in accordance with applicable Village law at the expense of the owner of the adjoining lands.
