The purposes of this section are to:
2. These standards shall apply to all redevelopment activities. Redevelopment is defined as one or more of the following:
B. Private Roadway/Driveways. Two-way access may be allowed at existing intersections or at new intersections at intervals of 1000 feet only with the approval of the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Directors of Engineering and Planning or their designees for the Columbus Consolidated Government.
C. Interparcel Access. All land parcels, excluding single-family residential, fronting the Corridor right-of-way shall have interparcel connectivity via either an alley way or a travel way that is delineated from parking areas such that short trips between developments can be made without use of the major road within the corridor. Within a focus area, development shall interconnect with the road or travel way network of any adjacent development or site within the focus area unless the Directors of Engineering and Planning determines such connection would constitute an undue hardship.
D. Sidewalks. Sidewalks shall be required as established under Chapter 7, Article 10 of the Unified Development Ordinance and shall be adjacent to all non-limited access public rights-of-way. Sections along 2nd Avenue between 35th street and 38th street shall not be less than 8 feet in width.
(3) When parking areas are provided in a front yard (in between a public road right-of-way and a principle building), a combination of landscaped earthen berm and evergreen hedge with a minimum height of 18 inches shall be used. The total height of landscaped earthen berm and hedge combination shall reach a minimum height of 2.5 feet at planting. Screening shall be located in the planting yard if it does not impede other uses or purposes of the yard.
