For the purpose of establishing a uniform and coordinated system of property numbering in the Village of Bosque Farms, all numbering shall be done in conformity with the following requirements:
A. 
All houses and buildings abutting on any street, avenue, or public way shall be numbered in reference to a uniform grid system of approximately 12 blocks per mile, with a range of 100 numbers allocated to each block.
B. 
The Village shall be divided into two bisections, east and west, with the center line of Highway 47 (Bosque Farms Boulevard) dividing east and west. All street names hereinafter shall include a bisection designation in the form of a suffix to said name if such street shall lie both east and west of this center line.
C. 
Bosque Farms' north boundary shall constitute the base line for all numbering on the streets running north and south. State Highway 47 shall constitute the base line for all numbering on the streets running east and west.
D. 
The numbering of buildings on each street shall originate and progress from its respective base line. Grid lines, as shown on the official reference map on file at the Village Clerk's office, indicate the point at which numbers will change from 100 to the next higher hundred.
E. 
As a general rule, numbers shall be assigned on the basis of one address for each 25 feet of frontage along the street.
F. 
The properties situated on the north and east sides of streets and avenues shall be given even numbers. Properties situated on the south and west sides of streets shall be given odd numbers.
There is hereby established a master map with a grid overlay entitled "Address and Street Name Reference Map," based on the County Assessor's platting maps, hereinafter adopted and made a part of this Section 10-3 and filed in the Village Clerk's office.
All existing street names shall be approved, revised, or renamed so as to conform to the official reference map upon the adoption of this Section 10-3. Hereafter, every subdivision plat submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission of the Village of Bosque Farms for its approval shall show the proper names of any and all streets, and these street designations shall be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission before such new streets are officially named.

It shall be the duty of the owners of all properties containing buildings to number such properties at the expense of said owners with durable numerals at least three inches high in such manner and location as to be plainly visible from the street. Assigned numbers are to be requested by said owners from the Village Clerk's office. Hereafter, it shall be the duty of each property owner to request the aforesaid assigned number from the Village Clerk's office upon application for a state building permit.
