2. Landscaping and paving- All open areas of an improved lot shall be maintained in a dust free condition by landscaping with trees, shrubs, or suitable ground cover. Undisturbed natural growth is encouraged. Covering with material that will provide an all-weather surface is an alternative.
3. Storage facilities- Outdoor storage shall be permitted only in rear yards or side yards when accessory to a permitted use.

Maximum Sound Pressure
Level in Decibels
.0002 Dynes per CM2
Sound levels shall be measured with a sound level meter and associated octave band filter manufacture according to standards prescribed by the American Standards Association. Measurements shall be made using the flat network of the sound level meter. Impulsive type noise shall be capable of being accurately measure with equipment. Noises capable of being so measured, of the purpose of this section, shall be those noises which cause rapid fluctuations of the needle of the sound level meter with a variation of no more than plus or minus two decibels.
Noises incapable of being so measured, such as those of an irregular or intermittent nature, shall be controlled so as not to become a nuisance to adjacent uses.
6. Smoke- No emission of smoke from any source shall be permitted to exceed a greater density than that density described as No. 1 on the Ringleman Chart. However, smoke may be emitted, which is equal to but not darker than No. 2 on the Ringleman Chart, for not more than four (4) minutes in any thirty (30) minute period. For the purpose of grading the density of smoke, the Ringleman Chart as published by the U.S. Bureau of Mines shall be the Standard.
