Sec. 21-12-2. Formula for dedication of land.

(a) The amount of land to be dedicated is based on the estimated population of the proposed subdivision. This chapter assumes that the average number of persons in a single-family household is three and that the average number of persons in all other types of households (duplex, multifamily and mobile homes) is 2.6, or 1.5 for senior housing. The amount of land to be dedicated shall be determined by application of the following formula:
Average number of persons per dwelling unit divided by 1000/5
=
minimum acreage dedication

(b) The following table shows the required park land dedication per type of dwelling unit based on the formula in subsection (a) of this section:
Parkland Dedication Table
Type of Dwelling
Average Number of Persons Per Dwelling Unit
Average Number of Persons per Dwelling Unit Divided by 1000/5
Single-family
3.0
.015
Senior housing
1.5
.0075
Other
2.6
.013

For example, the amount of parkland that would be dedicated for a one hundred fifty unit single-family project would be determined in the following way:
150 x .015
=
2.25 acres
2.25 acres would be required to be dedicated for a one hundred fifty single-family unit project.
(c) The basis for determining the total number of dwelling units shall be the actual number of dwelling units to be permitted within the subdivision at maximum units per zoning. A final calculation of the total number of dwelling units to be used for determining the amount of park land required shall be made by the community development director at the time the final map or parcel map is filed for approval. In conjunction with the dedication of the land, the subdivider shall also provide the following:
(1) Full street improvements and utility connections including, but not limited to, curbs, gutters, street paving, traffic control devices, and sidewalks contiguous to land which is dedicated pursuant to this section;
(2) Fencing along the property line of that portion of the subdivision contiguous to the dedicated land;
(3) Improved drainage through the site;
(4) Other minimal improvements which the city determined to be essential to the acceptance of land for recreational purposes. (Ord. No. 1500, § 3 (part).)
