(A) All lots shall abut on an interior street or place. Any variance allowing lots to face on existing county or municipal roads shall:
(1) Follow bonding requirements, as mentioned in § 153.026; and
(2) Require a minimum lot size of 32,670 square feet, with a minimum frontage of 170 feet and six inches along the existing road.
(B) Side lines of lots shall be at approximately right angles to straight streets and on radial lines on curved streets. Some variation from this rule is permissible, but pointed or very irregular lots should be avoided.
(C) Double frontage lots should not be platted, except that, where desired along federal arterial and state arterial highways and primary streets, lots will face on an interior street and back on the thoroughfares. In that event, a planting strip for a screen, at least 20 feet in width, shall be provided along the back of each lot.
(D) Widths and areas of lots shall be not less than those provided in Chapter 157 of this code for single-family dwellings for the district in which the subdivision is located, except that when a water main supply system or a sanitary sewer system is not available, the lot area necessary to install a private water supply or private sewage disposal system on the lot in accordance with the state Board of Health and county health regulations shall become the required minimum lot area.
(E) The depth-to-width ratio of the usable area of a lot shall be a maximum of three to one.
(F) Wherever possible, unit shopping centers, based upon sound development standards, should be designed, in contrast to the platting of lots for individual commercial use.
(G) Corner residential lots shall be wider than normal in order to permit appropriate setbacks from both streets.
