[Ord. 2002-9, 11/13/2002, § I]
Every business and residence within the Township shall be required to display a house number consistent with a numbering system assigned by the United States Postal Service and/or the Township Secretary.
[Ord. 2002-9, 11/13/2002, § II]
Each property owner within the Township shall permanently display the house number designated for his or her business or residence in a prominent place visible front the street not more than 50 feet from the point where the driveway giving access to the premises intersect with a Township, State or private road. Permanent display of the house number shall be substantially in accordance with the following standards:
Numerals designating the house number shall be no less than three inches high and 1 1/2 inches wide.
House numbers must be numeric: by example, the words "Fifty-Eight" are not permitted to designate the house number "58."
All house numbers shall be attached to a post, mail box, tree or other appropriate structure at a point no less than three feet from ground level.
House numbers must be visible from both directions of travel from the roadway. Contrasting signs are encouraged to meet this visibility requirement.
[Ord. 2002-9, 11/13/2002, § III]
Duplication of the permanent display of a house number is not necessary if a mailbox serves a residence or business and meets the visibility, location and standard requirements of § 4-102 above.
