In Zoning Districts A, R-1, R-2, and R-3, sidewalks shall have a minimum width of four (4) feet. In other zoning districts, except District C-2, sidewalks in front of premises used for residential purposes may use the four-foot minimum width unless by recommendation of the public works department and order of the council a different width is required. In all other districts the sidewalk widths shall be determined by the needs of the business and of the city. This need shall be determined upon investigation by the public works department, and recommendations made and approved by the council.
