16.10.100 – Criteria for requiring land and cash

There may be situations when a combination of land and a cash contribution in lieu of land are both necessary. At the time of Preliminary Plat approval, the City Council may require a combination of land and cash in any of the following situations:

A.    When a previously designated park or school site lies partly within and partly outside of a proposed subdivision and the acreage of the designated park or school site within the subdivision is less than the park or school site acreage required herein, the subdivider shall contribute all of the designated park or school site lying within the proposed subdivision, and cash in lieu of the additional acreage needed to fulfill the requirements hereof.

B.     When part of a designated park or school site has already been acquired, and the land needed to complete it is less than the land required from the subdivision, then the subdivider shall contribute the amount of land needed from the subdivision to complete the park or school site and cash in lieu of the additional acreage needed to fulfill the requirements hereof.

C.     When the subdivider will be contributing certain park or school sites, and the balance of the required park or school site acreage would be too small or otherwise unsuitable for park or school sites, then the subdivider shall contribute cash in lieu of the balance of the required school or park site acreage.
