§ 152.25  BLOCKS.
   (A)   Block length. In general, intersecting streets and roads, determining block lengths, shall be provided at such intervals as to serve cross-traffic adequately and to meet existing streets and roads. Where no existing plats control, the blocks in residential subdivisions shall normally not exceed 1,320 feet in length, except where topography or other conditions justifies a departure from this maximum. In blocks longer than 800 feet, pedestrian ways and/or easements through the block may be required near the center of the block. Blocks for business or industrial use should normally not exceed 600 feet in length.
   (B)   Block width. The width of the block shall normally be sufficient to allow two tiers of lots of appropriate depth. Blocks intended for business or industrial use shall be of a width as to be considered most suitable for their respective use, including adequate space for off-street parking and deliveries.
