[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town of Abington 4-3-2006 ATM by Art. 8. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Editor's Note: This Article also superseded former Ch. 25, Buildings, Numbering of, derived from Ch. 8, Sec. 14, of the 1992 Town of Abington Bylaws.
At the time of the sale, rental, new occupancy or transfer of any building in the Town, numbers representing the address of such building and assigned to such building by the Assessors shall be affixed to such building in such a manner that they are clearly visible from the nearest street and/or driveway entrance which provides access to such building. Said numbers shall be no less than four inches in height and shall be of a color in direct contrast to the surface to which it is attached. In addition to affixing numbers on the building, a building which is not clearly visible from the street or the driveway entrance, whether due to distance, topography, vegetation or other obstruction, may also be required by the Fire Department to affix its assigned numbers on a sign or other marker of a size and design acceptable by the Fire Department, which shall be erected in a more visible area along the public way as determined by the Fire Department. Nothing in this section shall prohibit a property owner from voluntarily erecting or affixing building numbers on a sign or marker in a location more visible to the public, so long as said sign or marker conforms to the Sign Bylaws and Zoning Bylaws of the Town. [See MGL Ch. 148 § 59.]
No sale, rental, new occupancy, or transfer of a building shall take place until the Fire Department verifies that such numbers are affixed in accordance with this Bylaw.
