Public Notification app - buffer question

Beginning work on this app - 

Have a question from the main users regarding buffering.  We (a City gov't) have a requirement relating to who gets notified of certain upcoming projects that results in using a 300 ft buffer most of the time.  However, this is tricky because we are required to essentially not count the public right-of-way (essentially streets) in the buffer.  So we need to buffer tool needs be 'smart' enough to not count the distance anytime it covers a right of way, and then continue calculating the distance after skipping over the right of way.  

A giant pain, and I doubt that a simple buffer tool can be configured to do this.  Anyone know if 1) the default configuration accounts for this, and 2) if not, if this kind of thing is possible?


Thanks -
