Then side and rear yard setbacks, as required by that residential zone, shall be observed on all sides of the industrial property contiguous with the residential zone and the R-1 setback requirements shall apply to a residential use within the I Zone.
      3.   Water Supply/Sewage Disposal: Prior to building permits being issued an industrial user shall satisfy the City that their activities will not burden the City water supply and provide for the proper treatment of discharge water in a manner to eliminate adverse effects upon the City sewer system and the environment.
      4.   Street Access: No lot shall be developed without access to a public street or road, built to such construction standards as set by the City. Should such street or road not be built to City standards, it shall be the responsibility of the property owner whose property is being developed to improve the street to City standards prior to building permits being issued.
      5.   Clear View Of Intersecting Streets: In all zones, which require a front yard, no obstruction to view in excess of three feet (3') in height, or under ten feet (10') in height shall be placed on any corner lot within triangular area, from the street property line.
   D.   Landscaping Required: Landscaping shall be required to cover at least five percent (5%) of the parking lot areas of any industrial development in the City.

The Council shall review and approve all landscaping plans. Buffer is required when an industrial use is contiguous to a residential zone or to a residential use within the I Zone.
