The Engineer shall plot on the Tax Map of the Borough all the properties which now or shall hereafter front on any street and designate and assign numbers therefor.
A building now or hereafter erected within the Borough shall bear, in figures, the street number assigned to the building on the Tax Map of the Borough. The figures shall be displayed by the owner or occupant on the front of the building or in the front yard in numerals at least three inches in height, at or near the front entrance to the building and so located as to be visible to persons passing by the building or premises on the abutting street.
Upon completing the plotting on the Borough Tax Map of the numbers assigned to all lots and buildings on any particular street, the Engineer shall file a copy thereof with the Clerk.

He shall record the new numbers on the map within 10 days of the filing of the approval given for such subdivision or resubdivision of land.
No subdivision or resubdivision, major or minor, of land requiring approval by the Joint Land Use Board shall be approved by it unless a number shall be assigned by the Engineer to each lot for the building erected or to be erected on it.
No certificate of occupancy shall be issued by the Construction Code Official or anyone in his department for the occupancy of any building hereinafter erected or enlarged unless the provisions of this chapter are complied with.
