Ridgeline View Protection. <br />]:[ <br /> <br />If a building cannot be sited below a significant ridgeline because the area away from it <br />is not the LRDA or is otherwise not suitable for development, the following shall apply: <br />a. The building shall not exceed 18 feet in height. ]:[ <br /> <br />6. Avoid hazardous building sites . Building in areas with more than 30 percent slope or <br />areas containing liquefiable soil with poor bearing capacity, slide pote ntial, fault rupture <br />zones and other geotechnical or fire hazards shall be avoided unless no alternative <br />building site is available. ]:[ <br /> <br />CHAPTER I I I.
