1228.08  NATURAL FEATURES AND TOPOGRAPHY; FLOOR ELEVATIONS.
   (a)   In a subdivision of any land within the Municipality, due regard shall be shown for all natural features, such as tree growth, watercourses or other similar elements which, if preserved, would add attractiveness to the proposed development.
   (b)   The natural topography shall be retained wherever possible in order to reduce excessive run-off onto adjoining property and to avoid extensive regrading of the site.
   (c)   Floor elevations of all buildings shall be carefully studied in relation to existing topography, proposed street grades, existing trees, areas subject to periodic flooding and other pertinent site features. Such elevations shall be constructed in accordance with recommendations by the Planning Commission, the Municipal Engineer and the Miami Conservancy District.
