(a) The size, shape and orientation of residential lots shall be appropriate to the location of the proposed subdivision and to the types of development contemplated, and in conformity with the Zoning Code.
(b) Excessive depth in relation to width shall be avoided. A ratio of three and one-half to one shall normally be considered as a desirable maximum for widths of sixty feet and over.
(c) If topography permits, lots fronting on main traffic ways should have extra depth and deep setbacks.
(d) Every lot shall abut on a street or other public right of way.
(e) Double frontage lots shall be avoided.
(f) Side lines of lots shall be approximately at right angles or radial to the street line, unless, in the opinion of the Planning Commission, a variation from this rule will give a better street and lot plan. On curved streets, the lot line shall be radial to the curve whenever possible.
(g) Corner lots shall have extra width sufficient to permit maintenance of building lines on both front and side.
(h) Where irregularity of ownership or street lines inevitably produces small remnant lots, such areas shall be added to adjoining lots or left unplatted and marked to be left in that status until such time as arrangements may be made with the adjoining property owners for the proper platting of such places.
