*In addition to road pavement, two (2) paved, ten-foot shoulders are required.

**See Appendix A - “Design Standards for Streets, Sidewalks and Bikeways,” which is filed in the office of planning and development and in the office of the city clerk, for additional standards and criteria for the application of these requirements.

    (1)    Proposed subdivisions that include existing street rights-of-way narrower than required herein shall provide for dedication of appropriate additional width along one (1)or both sides of the street. Proposed subdivisions abutting only one (1) side of such streets shall provide for dedication of additional width to constitute one-half of the right-of-way required.

     (2)    In commercial areas where heavy vehicular traffic will be produced, the commission may require dedication of additional street right-of-way width and construction of additional pavement to serve as access to the intended commercial area and to ensure the free flow of through traffic on the street involved. This requirement shall be at the expense of the subdivider and shall be so indicated on the preliminary plat prior to its endorsement by the commission.

    ( 32)In low density, single-family residential subdivisions, the width of local residential streets may be reduced from thirty-two (32) feet to twenty-eight (28) feet (estate lanes) if the subdivision complies with all of the following criteria:

        a.    Lots abutting the proposed estate lane may not exceed an overall density of one (1) dwelling unit per acre.

        b.    No lot abutting the proposed estate lane may be less than one hundred twenty-five (125) feet wide at the building line.  

        c.    The street may not be designed to accommodate through traffic. Cul-de-sac, loop and horseshoe streets beginning and ending within a main block will ordinarily satisfy this requirement.

        d.    In all other respects, street paving and related public improvements design for estate lanes shall be according to the design standards for local residential streets contained or referenced herein.
