On corner lots at the intersection of two public streets, a sight distance triangle is formed by the street lines of a lot and a line drawn between the points established in accordance with the following: For a lot having an interior angle of 90 degrees or more at the street corner, points are made 30 feet from the property lines extended. For a lot having an interior angle of less than 90 degrees at the street corner, points are made 30 feet from property lines extended, plus one foot for every ten degrees or fraction by which such angle is less than 90 degrees. Additional information is available in the Sight Distance Obstructions on Corner Lots flyer.
Fences in a front yard on a corner lot are allowed a maximum height of 48 inches except in the sight distance triangle, where a maximum fence height of 42 inches is allowed.
On any corner lot, all signs must be located outside of the sight distance triangle.
Vegetation in the sight distance area of a corner lot cannot consist of any plantings greater than three and one-half feet in height. Also, between three and one-half feet and ten feet above grade, the sight distance area must be maintained clear of any branches or leaves (foliage), except that a tree trunk equal to or less than one foot in diameter is allowed. An example is available in Figure 4 of the Sight Distance Obstructions on Corner Lots flyer.
