(A) Uniformity of the system. All roads that are officially designated on the addressing map, whether public or private, shall be numbered uniformly and consecutively along the roadway center line. Numbers shall be assigned along the entirety of all named thoroughfares.
(B) Origin point. The origin point, or vertex, of the numbering system shall be located at the intersection of Depot Street and Main Street in the town.
(C) North-south and east-west axes. The town shall be divided by two axes. The north-south axis shall be Depot Street and the east-west axis shall be Main Street.
(D) Road naming and numbering criteria. All roads, both public and private, shall be named, numbered and have road name signs installed if two or more addressable structures, including mobile homes, are located on and accessed by them.
(E) Numbering method. A pair of numbers, each being either a three-, four- or five-digit natural number, called a structure number, shall be assigned at intervals of 10.56 feet along a roadway center line. Odd natural numbers shall be assigned to the left side of the road by ascending numbers moving from the axes or origin point. Even natural numbers shall be assigned to the right side of the road in a like manner. (See the diagram in Attachment 1 at the end of this chapter.)
(F) Dead end road. All dead end roads and cul-de-sacs shall begin with ascending numbers at the open end, that being the end connecting to another road.
(G) Roads connecting to both axes. Roads which connect to both axes shall begin ascending numbers on the end stemming from the north-south axis.
(H) Numbers begin with 100. The first potentially assignable structure number on a given road shall be the number 100.
(I) Existing property numbers. Existing property numbers shall be maintained, with the exception of those numbers not in sequence with other properties in that block (e.g., 900 numbers in 300 Block).
