Streets and other accessways shall:
   (a)   Comply with the Official Map of Thoroughfares and with the Regional Thoroughfare Plan hereafter adopted by the Planning Commission.
   (b)   Comply with any tentative neighborhood plan prepared by the Planning Commission, if any, for the area where the subdivision is located.
   (c)   Give adequate recognition to existing topography.
   (d)   Provide that proposed streets continue and complete existing streets (constructed or recorded) at equal or greater width and in similar alignment, except for variations recommended by the Planning Commission.
   (e)   Include a minor street approximately parallel to the main thoroughfare, wherever desirable.  By-passes should be provided around major intersections.
   (f)   Provide access to adjoining unsubdivided land as specified by the Planning Commission.
   (g)   Be planned to discourage use of minor streets by nonlocal traffic.
   (h)   Be planned, if only part of the tract is to be subdivided, and that part which is not to be subdivided shall be sketched.
   (i)   Intersect as nearly at right angles as possible.
   (j)   Be planned, where a new subdivision involves frontage on a heavy traffic way (particularly Federal and State routes or parkways), to provide motor access to such frontage by one of the following means:
      (1)   A parallel street (supplying frontage for lots backing on to the traffic way).
      (2)   A series of cul-de-sacs or short loops entered from such a parallel street with their terminal lots backing on to the highway.
      (3)   An access drive separated by planting a strip from the highway to which motor access from the drive is provided at points suitably spaced.
      (4)   A service drive or alley at the rear of lots.  Where such is provided, deed covenants or other protective measures should prevent private residential driveways from having direct access to the highway.
   (k)   Be planned, where a railroad is involved, so as to:
      (1)   Provide for future grade separation.
      (2)   Boarder the railroad with a parallel street at sufficient distance either to permit deep lots to back on to the railroad or to form a buffer strip for part business or industrial use.
      (3)   Provide cul-de-sacs at right angles to the railroad to permit deep lots to back thereto.
   (l)   Be planned so as not to have cul-de-sacs longer than 600 feet unless topography necessitates greater length.
   (m)   Be planned so as not to have the following conditions:
      (1)   Alleys in residential districts (except where needed by special conditions).
      (2)   Dead-end alleys.
      (3)   Reserves.
   (n)   Be planned with easements for utilities along side and rear lot lines where needed.
   (o)   Provide an easement along natural drainage courses of adequate width for maintenance.
   (p)   Not encroach upon areas planned as other future public facilities, as shown on the Master Plan.
