[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Henrietta 12-20-1989. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Building and development — See Ch. 48.
Subdivision of land — See Ch. 245.
A principal building used or to be used for residential, mixed occupancy, commercial, industrial or storage purposes shall bear or display at least one set of street numbers assigned to it. In the case of new construction, no certificate of occupancy will be issued unless building numbers conforming with this section are installed.
[Amended 2-18-2015 by L.L. No. 1-2015]
Such numbers shall be Arabic in format with a minimum height of four inches and mounted in a secure fashion to the building's front wall or to a porch or other fixed appurtenance in front of the building in the vicinity of the main entryway or main path of travel leading to the main entrance from a public street or otherwise separately mounted in an approved manner upon the face of a wall or upon a post in the front yard of the premises. In the case wherein a group of structures or buildings carries the same address, i.e., plazas and industrial/commercial complexes, posting the address at the principal entry point to the complex, being visible as required by this section, shall be considered as being in compliance with this chapter.
All street numbers 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 or other obstructions shall not block said street numbers.
Builders or developers of new structures shall post a temporary sign on the site conforming to § 52-1B of 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 requirement or the visibility requirements shall be considered in 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.
[Amended 6-20-2001 by L.L. No. 3-2001; 2-15-2006 by L.L. No. 1-2006]
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 so to do, the Fire Marshal/Building Inspector is hereby directed to place said numbers and/or remove all other numbers and to charge therefor a fee as established by the Town Board, which sum is to be collected from the owner pursuant to the provisions of the law.
