[Adopted 4-3-2000 by L.L. No. 1-2000 (Ch. 127, Art. IV, of the 1992 Code)]
There is hereby established an official system of street names and numbers in the Village of Woodridge, New York.
No new street shall be accepted by the Village until such street shall be identified and designated by name. If new streets are extensions of existing streets, the names of such streets shall be attached to such extensions. If such new street is not an extension of an existing street, then the name by which the new street is designated shall not be identical to, nor bear any similarity to, nor conflict with the name of any existing street.
Names for new streets and streets that are unnamed at the time of the adoption of this article shall be assigned. Changes of existing street names must be approved by the Village Board.
The Village Board may change the name of any street when necessary to avoid confusion.
The Village Board shall cooperate with adjoining villages and townships to ensure that every street within a United States Postal Service zip code area has a unique name.
New street numbers shall be assigned by the Village Board or, where authorized by the Village Board, by the Village of Woodridge Code Enforcement Officer.
The Village Board, or where authorized by the Village Board the Village Code Enforcement Officer, may assign new numbers where necessary to avoid duplication or confusion.
The principal building on every parcel of land shall bear the number assigned to the street frontage on which the entrance is located. In case a principal building is occupied by more than one business or family dwelling, the entrance to each separate use of such principal building shall bear a separate number.
Numerals indicating the official numbers for each principal building or each separate entrance shall be posted in a manner so as to be visible from the street on which the property is located. Whenever any building is situated more than 50 feet from the street line, the official number shall be affixed to a gate, fence, tree, post, or other appropriate place so as to be easily visible from the street line and so as to show clearly, if not otherwise evident, which is the driveway for the property. The numbers shall be not less than three inches, nor more than six inches in height and shall be made of durable material clearly visible during both daytime and nighttime hours.
The owner of every building existing at the time of the adoption of this article and already having a street number shall place official numerals on such building within 30 days after such adoption. The owner of every new or previously unnumbered building and of every building to which a new number has been assigned shall place official numerals on such building within 30 days after being notified of the assignment of a number. No certificate of occupancy shall be issued for any new building until the owner has complied with this provision.
Any person who violates this article shall be guilty of a violation subject to punishment as provided in the Penal Law of the State of New York.
