[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Wappinger 5-2-1988 by L.L. No. 2-1988. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the intent of the Town Board of the Town of Wappinger that all new buildings constructed after the effective date of this chapter should be uniquely numbered, so as to provide easy identification for both the general public as well as emergency vehicles. The Town Board finds that this is in the best interest of the general health, welfare and safety of all of the residents of the Town.
The Town Assessor shall, upon receipt of a duly approved subdivision map or site plan for commercial property, assign a unique number to the building to be erected on said property, to be unique from any other number on the same street upon which the premises is located.
Within five days after the assignment of a number or occupancy, whichever is later, the owner of a property receiving a certificate of occupancy, following the adoption of this chapter, shall erect upon said property the number given to the property by the Town Assessor in accordance with the rules and regulations to be promulgated by the Building Inspector of the Town of Wappinger. Said number shall be clearly visible from the nearest public highway serving the property. Said number shall be placed either on the building itself or on a sign post located at the driveway entrance to said property in accordance with rules of the Building Inspector.
[Amended 9-13-1999 by L.L. No. 6-1999; 3-22-2004 by L.L. No. 5-2004]
Any person who fails to erect the building number as heretofore required in a proper location within the time periods prescribed, or who allows the number to be removed without replacing the same, within five days after notification of violation, shall be deemed in violation of this chapter. A violation of this chapter shall be a violation and the property owner or tenant shall be subject to a fine in the amount set forth in Chapter 122, Article V, § 122-20H of the Code or by imprisonment for not more than 15 days, or both such fine and imprisonment.
