1181.10  EXCEPTIONS TO YARD AND HEIGHT REGULATIONS.
   In addition to all yard regulations, these provisions shall be used for interpretation and clarification:
   (a)   Setback Requirements for Corner Buildings:  On a corner lot, the principal building and its accessory structures shall be required to have the same setback distance from all street right-of-way lines as required for the front yard in the district in which these structures are located.
   (b)   Visibility at Intersections:  On a corner lot in a residential district, no object shall be erected, placed, planted, or allowed to grow in such a manner as to impede vision between the height of two and one-half feet (2-1/2') and ten feet (10') above the centerline grades of the intersecting streets and the area bounded by the street lines of such corner lots and a line joining points along said street lines fifty feet (50') from the point of intersection.  Such a violation shall be considered an abatable nuisance.
   (c)   Fence and Wall Restrictions in Front Yards:  In any required front yard, no fence or wall shall be permitted which impedes vision across such yard above the height of two and one-half feet (2-1/2') and no hedge or vegetation shall be permitted which materially impedes vision across such yard between the height of two and one-half feet (2-1/2') and ten feet (10').  Screening devices up to six feet (6') in height shall be permitted in the remaining yards.  Such a violation shall be considered an abatable nuisance. 
   (d)   Architectural Projections:  Open structures such as porches, canopies, balconies, platforms, carports, covered patios, and similar architectural projections shall be considered a part of the building to which they are attached and shall not project into the required minimum front, side, or rear yard.
