In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this chapter shall be held to be the minimum requirements adopted for the promotion of the public health, safety, comfort, convenience and general welfare.

In the event of conflict in the terminology of any section or part thereof of this chapter, the more restrictive provisions shall control.
Should any section or provision of this chapter be decided by the courts to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the validity of the chapter as a whole or of any part thereof other than the part so decided to be unconstitutional or invalid.
