[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Commissioners of the City of Union City 1-7-1997 as § 18-3 of the 1996 Revised General Ordinances. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The numbering for address and official tax record purposes of all houses, property and lots located on all streets in the City running from south to north, shall be arranged so that, for example, the property located on the east side of Bergenline Avenue at its intersection with the north side of Second Street, shall be known as House No. 200, and each building entrance shall have a separate number so that in the event there is more than one building on one lot, each of the buildings shall have a separate number and should a building be erected on more than one lot and have only one entrance, then each 25 feet of the lot shall have a separate number, and other streets running in the same direction shall conform to this method of numbering and as specifically set forth in subsection 18-3.2.
The southeasterly corner of each block shall bear the hundred number designation of the street forming the southerly boundary of the block and progress northerly by even sequence one hundred numbers to the block on the east side of the street and by odd sequence on the west side of the street. The respective blocks located on streets which do not intersect a boundary street shall bear the hundred number of the corresponding block nearest the same location which does intersect the boundary street.
Numbers of buildings and parcels of land and property located on streets running from east to west shall not be affected by this section.
The numbering of houses and property shall conform strictly to a plan entitled "City of Union City, Hudson County, Renumbering of Houses and Property, February, 1940, Peter LaMort, City Engineer," approved by Henry Specker, Director of Public Works and by the Board of Commissioners of the City of Union City, and which plan is on file in the office of the director of revenue and finance in the office of the director of public works and in the office of the City Clerk and which plan designates the old numbers of the old houses and property, and the new numbers of houses and property, required by this section.
On vacant property where no address is shown on the plan, the new address of the vacant property must conform with this section and the general plan of renumbering the address being reserved but specifically omitted from the plan.
In case of dispute or doubt as to the proper number to be assigned to a lot, part of lot or building, the director of public works shall determine the number of such lot, part of lot or building.
All buildings fronting on a street shall have conspicuously displayed the number as provided by this section and the plan herein referred to.
