   .020   Parcels Without Frontage.  Parcels without frontage on a public street will be permitted, if the appropriate easements, as required by the City Public Works Department, are recorded to provide adequate and safe vehicle and pedestrian access between all parcels, and between all parcels and adjoining public rights-of-way.
   .030   Integrated Design.  The design of buildings, signs, landscaping and other structures or elements shall feature a unified and integrated theme.
   .040   Vehicle Access.  All vehicle access shall be from a vehicle circulation system designed and improved in accordance with the applicable City Standards.
