§42-170.
Plant Material Placement
The placement of buffer plantings shall be at the discretion of the developer, and shall be approved as part of the site
plan submitted. Trees or shrubs shall not be planted within five (5) feet of any property line to ensure maintenance
for access and to avoid encroaching onto the adjacent property. Where a setback requirement is less than the buffer
requirement, the buffer width shall override the setback width. Where a setback requirement is greater than the
buffer requirement, plant material requirements shall still be applied and such plant materials shall be placed within
the buffer area. Trees and shrubs shall be spaced to provide screening.
