[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Bradford 3-22-1904 as Ord. No. 1059. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Building construction — See Ch. 80.
All houses fronting on the several streets of the City of Bradford shall be numbered according to the following system:
For the purposes of this system, the center of the city shall be considered as at the intersection of Main and Mechanic Streets. These streets and the prolongation thereof shall be considered as a system of rectangular coordinates running east and west and north and south. From these streets and their prolongations as the axes of the system, all other streets shall be numbered in the direction of the city limits. House No. 1 shall be at the end of the street nearest the axes, even numbers on the right and odd numbers on the left going from the axes. In any case where this rule will not apply, rectangular axes shall run north and south nearest the center of population, and the houses shall be numbered from there in the direction of the city limits. Should any street cross the prolongation of the main axes in any direction, it shall be numbered east and west or north and south, as the case may be, from a prominent cross street nearest the main axes. Every twenty-five (25) feet or fraction thereof shall constitute one (1) number.
[Amended 6-11-1974 by Ord. No. 2914]
It shall be the duty of the owners of all houses in the City of Bradford, at their own expense, to cause said numbers to be placed on each separate dwelling and place of business, in accordance with the foregoing system of numbering, and to continue to maintain such numbers, and any neglect or failure to do so shall constitute a violation of this chapter, and any violator thereof, upon conviction thereof, shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than twenty-five dollars ($25.) and costs of prosecution.
[Amended 6-11-1974 by Ord. No. 2914]
Any person desiring to know the number belonging to his property may obtain the same by applying therefor to the City Engineer, furnishing the distance and direction from the nearest street and also the side of the street on which the premises are situated, and the City Engineer, upon such application, shall furnish such information free of charge.
Hereto attached, made a part of this chapter and marked Exhibit A is a list of the various streets of the City of Bradford, giving the direction in which the numbers should run, according to the system provided for in this chapter.
