Chapter 25 SUBDIVISIONS*
Section 25-60 Installation of improvements.
Improvements required. All required public improvements, including but not limited to
streets and utilities, shall be installed or constructed in accordance with the design standards and
requirements contained in sections 25-27-33, or in related public improvements standard
specifications or policies established by the city departments charged with responsibility
(b) It is the intention of this chapter to cause completion
of installation of all water, sewer or
other underground utilities prior to construction of streets, so that any breaking through of streets
will be held to an absolute minimum. It is also the intention of this chapter to provide for the
continued carrying out of existing city policy regarding the installation of street lights, electric
lines, fire hydrants, water mains and other utilities until such policies are changed by the council.
Inspection and certification. Inspection of required improvements shall be made during
construction and installation to ensure satisfactory completion thereof, in accordance with
inspection requirements adopted by the council or promulgated by the city departments charged
with responsibility therefor.
Disclaimer of estoppel. The level of public improvements established at the time of
subdivision is taken to be that required to provide an adequate level of service for the land use or
uses contemplated by the subdivision itself. Approval of a final plat, and acceptance of
improvements therein by the council, shall not be construed to prevent the council from causing
public improvements to be enhanced, enlarged or upgraded, in order to accommodate a higher
level of service demand attendant to any subsequent change in the use of land within the
subdivision, whether by benefit assessment, agreement among the parties or by such other
mechanism as may be available now or may subsequently become available to the council.
Submission of tracings. Upon notice that the improvements have been completed in
accordance with the city's requirements, the engineer shall, under his seal and signature, submit
as-built tracings for the street, storm sewer and sanitary sewer construction.
