A.   In interpreting and applying the provision of this title, they shall be held to be the minimum requirements for the promotion of the safety, health, convenience, comfort, prosperity and general welfare. It is not intended by this title to interfere with, abrogate, annul, or repeal any ordinances, rules or regulations previously adopted, and not in conflict with any of the provisions hereof or which shall be adopted pursuant to law relating to the use of buildings or premises, nor is it intended to interfere with or abrogate or annul any easements, covenants, or other agreements between parties; except, that where this title imposes a greater restriction upon the use of land, buildings or premises or upon the height of buildings or requires larger open spaces than are imposed or required by such other ordinances or such other easements, covenants, or agreements, the provisions of this title shall control.
   B.   Where the conditions imposed by any provision of this title upon the use of land or buildings or upon the bulk of buildings are either more restrictive or less restrictive than comparable conditions imposed by any other provision of this title or any other law, ordinance, resolution, rule or regulation of any kind, the regulations which are more restrictive (or which impose higher standards or requirements) shall govern.
   C.   It is hereby declared to be the intention of the city that the several provisions of this title are separable, in accordance with the following:
      1.   If any court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge any provision of this title to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect any other provisions not specifically included in the judgment.
      2.   If any court of competent jurisdiction shall adjudge invalid the application of any provision of this title to a particular property, building, or other structure, such judgment shall not affect the application of said provision to any other property, building or structure not specifically included in said judgment.
