[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Supervisors of the Township of Girard 10-10-1978 by Ord. No. 35 (Ch. 44 of the 1987 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
Subdivision and land development — See Ch. 174.
It is the opinion of the Supervisors that it will promote the general welfare of Girard Township to have a complete and systematic house-numbering system in Girard Township.
Prior to any person or persons occupying a building or structure or any part thereof, an application shall be made to the Board of Supervisors of Girard Township or to a person designated by said Supervisors for this purpose of assigning an appropriate number(s) to building(s) or structure(s) in accordance with the Girard Township house-numbering system, three copies of which will be kept on file with the Girard Township Secretary/Treasurer.
Existing buildings or structures are henceforth, and when this chapter becomes effective, assigned new numbers in accordance with the Girard Township house-numbering system, except that, where possible, existing numbering will be retained when not in conflict with the new house-numbering system. The occupants of each building or structure shall have one calendar month in which to contact the Board of Supervisors of Girard Township or its designated person to secure a number, which will be prominently posted at an appropriate place on the building or structure for convenience of identification.
An application for securing a number for a new building or structure shall be made in writing by the owner or his agent upon forms supplied by Girard Township and shall contain the names of the owner(s) and a description sufficient to identify the building or structure for which the number is intended.
The Board of Supervisors of Girard Township may, by resolution, in its discretion, appoint or designate a person or agency that shall be vested with the powers, duties and obligations herein set forth. In addition to these duties, the designee shall keep an accurate record of all house numbers assigned in Girard Township for the benefit of Township residents and other interested parties.
