[HISTORY: Adopted by the Representative Town Meeting of the Town of Branford 6-13-1984. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the intent and purpose of this chapter to establish an effective and easily recognizable system of the exact location of various building units in the Town of Branford to ensure the rapid location of any building unit by emergency vehicles.
The owner of each building, condominium unit or trailer, which trailer is permanently located or usable for residential purposes, shall affix thereto a number, designating the street number of the building, condominium unit or trailer. Such number shall be no less than three inches in height, shall be in a color contrasting to the area to which it is affixed, shall be visible from the street to which such number relates and shall be located on the top, bottom or side of the main entrance of the building facing said street. In case of a building, condominium unit or trailer more than 50 feet from said street, the owner shall, in addition to the number on the building or trailer, display a number meeting the specifications set forth herein on a mailbox, fence or post located at the property line reasonably adjacent to said street, the side of the driveway or sidewalk in such a manner as to make said number visible from the street. If the number is placed upon a mailbox adjacent to the street, the number shall be placed on each side of the box in a location visible from the street.
The owner of each condominium complex, apartment complex or similar multibuilding complex shall place upon the outside of each building, in a location and format approved by the Fire Department, the number and name of such building.
