All portions of any awning shall be at least eight but not more than twelve feet above any public walkway.
EXCEPTION: Any valance attached to an awning shall not project above the roof of the awning at the point of attachment and shall not extend more than twelve inches below the roof of the awning at the point of attachment, but in no case shall any portion of a valance be less than seven feet in height above a public way.
