(A)   Street identification. All rights-of-way running generally in a northerly or southerly direction shall be identified as streets, while all rights-of-way running generally in an easterly or westerly direction shall be identified as avenues. Cul-de-sacs shall be identified as courts or circles. All rights-of-way shall be identified with directional calls as well.
   (B)   Administration. The Zoning Administrator shall be responsible for addressing buildings and identifying streets. The Administrator shall consult with the Chief of Police, the City Engineer and the U.S. Postmaster assigned to the city district in the process of addressing buildings and identifying streets. Any change in existing street names, other than by addition of descriptive terms such as “street” or “avenue” or directional designations, shall be accomplished by resolution of the City Council.
   (C)   Property owner responsibility. The property owner shall number each principal structure located on the property using numbers which contrast with the background and are at least four inches in height and displayed in a fashion so as to be plainly visible and legible from the street. Accessory structures need not be addressed. Condominiums, cooperatives, duplexes and other buildings where units are individually owned shall be individually addressed. Apartment buildings and other rental structures shall be assigned a single address with each unit thereafter receiving a number designation in addition to the street address. The Zoning Administrator shall have the authority to issue addresses in circumstances not covered by or inconsistent with this section, for good cause shown. Any property owner aggrieved by the decision of the Zoning Administrator may appeal the decision to the City Council.
