[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of East Hanover 5-17-1973 as Art. 2 of Ch. 6 of the Revised Ordinances. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Uniform construction codes — See Ch. 75.
The owner or owners, occupant or occupants of each and every dwelling house, store or other building now fronting or which may hereafter front on any street or public place within the township shall, at their own cost and expense, cause their buildings to be numbered in conformity with the requirements of this Chapter and as is shown on a series of maps made by the Township Engineer and as filed in the office of the Clerk of the township.
The numbers shall be figures not less than two nor more than three inches in height, placed conspicuously on the front of each building and in such a way as to be easily discernible from the street.
For the proper numbering of said dwelling houses, stores and other buildings, the following numbering plan heretofore adopted is hereby continued:
All lots fronting on any street or public place in the township shall be considered and treated as having a frontage thereon, respectively, for the purpose of being numbered, of not exceeding 50 feet each. Each and every such lot having an actual frontage of 50 feet or less shall be numbered as if the same were the full frontage of 50 feet. Each and every such lot having an actual frontage exceeding said 50 feet shall have a number for each 50 feet or fraction thereof.
The respective number for each and every said lot in the township shall be as is designated for the particular street or streets as is shown on a series of maps respectively, entitled with the streets to which they refer, said series of maps having been made by the Township Engineer and which maps are on file in the office of the Township Clerk.
Upon the laying out or opening of any new public street or public place in the township, the Township Committee shall, by resolution, cause a map to be made showing and designating the street numbers for the several lots on said public street or public place.
The owner or owners of any dwelling house, store or stores or other buildings incorrectly, improperly or insufficiently numbered shall be notified in writing by the Township Engineer to change or replace such incorrect or improper number or to affix a number where one is lacking within 10 days after such notice.
Any person who violates any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by a fine not exceeding $500 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 90 days, or both.
