CHAPTER 21. SUBDIVISIONS.
Article 11. Dedication and Improvement Regulations.
Sec. 21-11-18. Underground utilities.
Except as otherwise provided in this code, all utility facilities
including, but not limited to, electric lines, communication lines, cable
television lines, street lighting, power supply lines, fire alarm circuits, and
appurtenances thereto, shall be placed underground and all facilities including
service laterals shall be installed in the ground prior to the paving of
streets. The city engineer may authorize installation of utility facilities
after street improvements are installed if the installation will not require
reconstruction or repair of the street improvements or if unusual circumstances
warrant. All necessary arrangements for the installation of utilities shall be
made with the operator of each proposed subdivision utility system pursuant to
this section, by the subdivider. At the time of approval of the tentative map,
or extensions thereof, the planning commission may modify this requirement for
all or part of a subdivision where, due to physical conditions, it would cause
unreasonable hardship. This section shall not apply to utility lines which do
not provide service to the area being subdivided. (Ord. No. 1500, § 3
