(A) In general, lots should be as nearly rectangular in shape as practicable.
(B) Width and area of lots shall conform with lot width and area requirements set forth in the Zoning Ordinance of the village, or that of the county for subdivisions located in the unincorporated areas within one and one-half miles beyond the village limits. In the case of corner lots, the Plan Commission may make variations to encourage the proper development of intersection design and traffic safety, and corner lots may be increased in width to 20% over the width of the typical interior lot and must provide for appropriate building setback distances and orientation to both streets. No lot shall be less than 50 feet wide at the building setback line.
(C) Depth of the lots shall not be less than 110 feet, except where continuations or existing streets extended do not permit compliance with this section.
(D) Width, area and depth of lots in an industrial, commercial or business subdivision shall be as approved by the Plan Commission in accordance with the proposed function and location of each subdivision, but shall be adequate to provide for off-street service and parking facilities required by the type and use of the development contemplated.
(E) All lots shall abut upon a public street.
(F) Side lines of lots shall be at right angles or radial to the street line, or substantially so.
(G) Double-frontage lots (through lots) are not permitted, except where lots back upon a thoroughfare, upon a body of water in separate or undivided ownership or as specifically approved by the Plan Commission in industrial, commercial and business subdivisions.
(H) Lots abutting upon a watercourse, drainageway, channel or stream shall have an additional depth or width as required by the Plan Commission in order to provide acceptable building sites.
(I) In all subdivisions due regard shall be given to the preservation of natural features, and easements shall be located where they will not interfere with the large trees, watercourses, historical and similar community assets which, if preserved, will add attractiveness and value to the property.
(J) Setback lines shall be required by the Zoning Ordinance for all street lines. In the case of corner lots, the minimum setback line shall apply along both the front street and the side street thereof.
