(A) The depth-to-width ratio of useable lot length shall be a maximum of four to one, except where unusual conditions exist. Additional land required for on-lot sewage disposal shall not be deemed as a justification for such exceptions.
(B) Double frontage and reverse frontage lots should be avoided except where essential to provide separation of residential development from traffic arteries or to overcome specific disadvantages of topography and orientation. A planting screen easement across which there shall be no right of access may be required by the Commission along the line of lots abutting such a traffic artery or other disadvantageous use.
(C) Side lines of lots, so far as practical, shall be at right angles or radial to street lines.
(D) Corner lots shall be increased in size whenever necessary so as to provide that any structure to be placed thereon shall conform to the minimum building setback line for a front yard to each street.
(E) Lots abutting local streets shall front upon the streets which parallel the long dimension of the block, if possible.
(F) All lots shall abut by their frontage on a publicly dedicated street or on a street that has received the legal status as such. Lots abutting on a private street or easement shall not be approved.
(G) The frontage width of lots fronting a cul-de-sac will be determined as the width at the building line, but shall not be less than 40 feet at the right-of-way line. The side yard setback requirements will be calculated from the closest point of the structure to the side line.
(H) Lot size and area, height regulations, and yard requirements shall be in accordance with the official city zoning ordinance.
