.080 Required Site Screening. Except as otherwise provided herein, a solid, decorative-type, masonry wall, landscaped earthen berm, or any combination thereof, totaling not less than six (6) feet in height, shall be provided along, and immediately adjacent to, the site boundary line of any single-family development abutting any open space area (open space lot or open space easement) abutting any arterial highway.
