Article 1.7 - Relation to Other Ordinances

When regulations made under the authority of this ordinance require a greater width or size of yards or courts, or require a lower height of a building or fewer number or stories, or require a greater percentage of a lot to be left unoccupied, or impose other higher standards than are required in any other statute or local ordinance or regulation, the regulations made under the authority of this ordinance shall govern.  In the event, this ordinance conflicts with other provisions of local, state, or federal law, that law that provides the greatest protection to the environment and natural features shall govern unless preempted by state or federal law.  Where that intent is not clear from a superficial reading of the Ordinance and laws, that law or ordinance which is most restrictive shall apply.
