1119.07  LOTS.
   The minimum dimensions and other characteristics of lots intended for residential use shall be as follows:
   (a)   When two rules apply to a subdivision or lot that rule shall govern which requires the greater lot size or lot dimension.
   (b)   When a subdivision is located within a zoning district of the City, the minimum area and dimensions of lots shall be no less than is required by the Zoning Code.
   (c)   A minimum lot size of 12,000 square feet shall be provided when public water is available but sanitary sewers are not provided.
   (d)   A minimum lot size of 20,000 square feet shall be provided when neither public water nor sanitary sewers are available.
   (e)   In no case shall a lot have a width at the building line of less than fifty feet or a lot area of less than 7,500 square feet and generally the depth-to-width ratio shall be a maximum of three to one.
   (f)   Corner lots intended for residential use shall have extra width sufficient for maintenance of building lines on both streets. The minimum width of such lots shall be seventy feet and the minimum building line from both streets shall be as required in the Zoning Code for such area, but the Planning Commission with the consent of Council may permit reduction of this distance along the side of a lot adjoining a minor street.
   (g)   All lots shall be designed to provide desirable building sites, properly related to topography, high water levels and surrounding streets, railroads, watercourses and land use.  A larger lot size than set out in subsections (a) to (e) hereof, inclusive, may be required in particular cases in order to meet the desirable requirements for the subdivided area.
   (h)   Building lines shall be established on the plat but in no case shall the building line be closer to the street than twenty feet or some greater distance as required by the Zoning Code.
