(A) Block length. In general, intersecting streets determining block lengths shall be provided at such intervals so as to serve cross-traffic adequately and to meet existing streets. Where no existing plats control, the blocks in residential subdivisions should not exceed 1,320 feet, nor be less than 500 feet in length, except where topography or other conditions justify a departure from this standard. In blocks longer than 800 feet, pathways and/or easements through the block may be required near the center of the block.
(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 such width as to be considered most suitable for their respective use, including adequate space for off-street parking and deliveries.
