1101.13  INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION.
   (a)   The provisions of the Planning and Zoning Code are minimum requirements, and shall be applied for the protection of the public health, safety, and general welfare; and shall be construed to further the objectives, purposes and intent of the Planning and Zoning Code.
   (b)   No provision of the Planning and Zoning Code shall repeal, abrogate, annul, amend, modify, impair or interfere with existing deed or plat restrictions, restrictive covenants, easements, agreements between parties relating to the use of property, ordinances, municipal standards or specifications, rules, or permits.

   (d)   Conflicts or inconsistencies between provisions of the Planning and Zoning Code  shall be resolved as prescribed in Codified Ordinance Section 101.06.  (Conflicting Provisions).
