[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town of Weston 5-4-1989, effective 6-7-1989. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the intent and purpose of this chapter to establish an effective and easily recognizable system for the exact location of various residential units in the Town of Weston to ensure the rapid location of any residential unit by emergency vehicles.
The numbers for each residential unit shall correspond to the numbers recorded in the official records of the Assessor.
The owner of each residential unit shall affix thereto a number designating the street number of the residential unit. 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 in close proximity to the main entrance of the residential unit facing said street. In case of a residential unit more than 50 feet from said street, the owner shall, in addition to the number described above, 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 mailbox in a location visible from the street. If more than one residential unit is located on a single driveway, the owner of each residence on the driveway shall, in addition to the residence number on the street, affix the number at the intersection of the driveway where his residence is located.
Property owners who violate this chapter for the first time shall be notified by mail to correct the violation within 30 days of the notification. Subsequent violations shall be subject to a fine established by the Board of Selectmen. The amount of such fine may, from time to time, be amended by the Board of Selectmen.
