The City has certain existing standards with which new construction should comply, when feasible, so as to not adversely impact the value of existing properties. These standards include:
   (a)    Basement ventilator-type windows shall be kept below grade. They shall be set in window wells or other similar devices;
   (b)    Roofs shall be constructed of high quality materials, and the look of a dimensional shingle is preferred for asphalt shingle roofs;
   (c)    Fireplace chimneys and furnace flues shall be clad with brick or stone;
   (d)    Flue pipes and utility services shall, to the extent possible, be blocked from the views of neighbors and from public rights of way by architectural features and/or appropriate landscaping.
