(A) There shall be no minimum lot size, and no minimum lot width; however no structure or group of structures shall be erected within ten feet of any other structure or group of structures not within the same lot, or be erected within five feet of a public street or any property line.
(B) For structures within the same lot, occupancies requiring greater separation distances, and for variances, the standards set forth in the currently adopted U.B.C. Chapter 5 and Table 5-A shall be used as minimums. For the purpose of this section, existing retaining walls may be repaired, or replaced with a new wall of similar dimensions, and need not meet the setback requirement to property lines unless, in doing so, a traffic or pedestrian safety hazard is created at the street, and need not meet the setback requirements to other structures as long as any replacement wall is constructed of noncombustible material.
(C) New retaining walls over four feet high measured from the bottom of the footing to the top of the wall, are considered structures and must meet the setback requirement to other structures and property lines.
