No part of any driveway shall be constructed closer than eight feet from the sidewalk intersection terminus when the inside sidewalk lines meet at a point, and five feet from the sidewalk intersection terminus when the inside sidewalk lines do not meet at a point measured at the inside sidewalk line and at right angles thereto.
"Sidewalk intersection terminus" means:
(a) The intersection of inside sidewalk lines where they meet at a point; or
(b) The points of tangency of the inside sidewalk lines to the curvature of such sidewalk lines at intersections.
Driveways serving commercial or industrial properties shall not be constructed nearer than five feet to side property lines measured at the back of the curb, except when reconstructing existing common drives.
When existing driveways are reconstructed or relocated for any reason, and the application of this section would cause a hardship, the City Engineer may allow driveways to be constructed in excess of the specified 35-foot width or closer to the sidewalk intersection terminus, provided the City Engineer maintains the radius to allow for adequate pedestrian and traffic safety.
