(a) Arrangement and Design. The lot arrangement and design shall be such that all lots shall provide satisfactory and desirable building sites properly related to topography and to the character of surrounding development.
(b) Side Lines. All side lines of lots shall be at right angles to straight street lines and radial to curved street lines, except where a variation of this rule will provide a better street and lot layout. Lots with double frontage shall be avoided.
(c) Corner Lots. Corner lots shall have a width sufficient to permit the establishment of front building lines on both the adjoining streets.
(d) Lots at Major and Acute Angle Intersections. Lots at major street intersections and at acute angle intersections of less than eighty-five degrees shall have a radius of twenty feet at the street corner. On business lots a chord may be substituted for the circular arc.
(e) Lot Dimensions.
(1) No lot shall have an area or width less than the maximum required for the R-1 District regardless of existing zoning.
(2) In any subdivision where neither a public sewer nor a public water supply is available, no lot shall have an area of less than 20,000 square feet or a width of less than 125 feet measured at the building line. Where a public water supply is available, but individual sewage disposal devices are used, no lot shall have an area of less than 12,000 square feet or a width of less than 100 feet.
