   (c)   Street intersections should be at right angles as far as possible.
   (d)   Cul-de-sacs shall be a minimum length of 150 feet and a maximum length of 600 feet.
   (e)   Half-streets will be accepted only when they complete an existing half-street on the border of the plat.
   (f)   Alleys may be required in business districts and in the rear of lots fronting on thoroughfares, but will not be approved in residential areas unless required by rugged topography or other unusual features.
   (g)   Easements for utilities shall be provided along rear or side lot lines where needed.
   (h)   The number of intersecting streets along thoroughfares shall be held to a minimum. A parallel service drive is recommended to eliminate numerous driveways from opening onto a thoroughfare.
