2. 
Deed restrictions or covenants should be included to provide for the creation of a property owners' association or board of trustees for the proper protection and maintenance of the development in the future, provided however, that such deed restrictions or covenants shall not contain reversionary clauses wherein any lot shall return to the subdivider because of a violation thereon of the terms of the restrictions or covenants.
3. 
Where the subdivision contains sewers, sewage treatment plants, water supply systems, park areas, street trees or other physical facilities necessary or desirable for the welfare of the area and which are of common use or benefit and are not or cannot be satisfactorily maintained by an existing public agency, provision shall be made by trust agreement, made a part of the deed restrictions acceptable to any agency having jurisdiction over the location and improvement of such facilities, for the proper and continuous maintenance and supervision of such facilities.
4. 
Parks, school sites, etc. Where an area being subdivided includes lands proposed to be used for parks or schools, under the duly adopted Comprehensive Plan of the City and environs, the subdivider shall not plat such lands as a part of the subdivision plat, and shall confer with the appropriate public agency regarding the time, method and amount of payment for the agency to acquire the land. If no agreement has been reached upon the acquisition of the area within two (2) years from the date of the submission of the preliminary plan, the subdivider may then plat the balance of the area.
D. 
Easements Along Streams. Whenever any stream or important surface drainage course is located in an area which is being subdivided, the subdivider shall provide an adequate easement along each side of the stream for the purpose of widening, deepening, sloping, improving or protecting the stream or drainage course.

Section 410.075 Display Plat Procedure.

[R.O. 2006 §410.075; Ord. No. 942, 9-15-2003; Ord. No. 942A, 6-21-2004]
A. 
Purpose. To provide a procedure whereby the construction of a display house or multiple-family display unit can begin prior to the recording of the record subdivision plat.
B. 
Procedure. After receiving approval of a preliminary plat of a proposed subdivision from both the Planning and Zoning Commission and Board of Aldermen, the developer may submit a display plat to the Planning and Zoning Commission for review and approval. There may be one (1) display house for every ten (10) lots proposed, not to exceed ten (10) display houses; however, a subdivision with less than ten (10) lots may have one (1) display house.
C. 
Display Plat. The display plat shall include a complete outboundary survey of the proposed subdivision and the location of each display in relation to proposed lots. The script shall comply with the requirements of the City including, but not limited to, the following:
1. 
The display plat shall be recorded in the office of the Lincoln County Recorder of Deeds prior to issuance of a building permit for any display.
2. 
The display plat shall become null and void upon the recording of a record plat which establishes that each display is on an approved lot.
3. 
No part of the proposed subdivision may be conveyed, nor an occupancy permit issued, for any structure therein until the display house or units have been located on an approved lot.
4. 
If initial construction of a display has not commenced within sixty (60) days, the Planning and Zoning Commission's approval shall lapse and the display plat shall be null and void.
5. 
Lots should be on an approved lot of record within one (1) year of the display plat's recording or such longer period as may be permitted by the Planning and Zoning Commission. If the record plat is not filed, the then owner shall remove or cause to be removed all display houses or units from the property. Failure of owner to remove the display houses or units from the property within one (1) year plus thirty (30) days of date of approval shall constitute the granting of authority to the City of Troy to remove or cause the display houses or units to be removed, the cost of which shall be borne by the owner and shall become a lien against the property.
D. 
The display plat shall be executed by the owner and lienors.

Section 410.080 Subdivision Variations and Exceptions.

[R.O. 2006 §410.080; CC 1980 §720.080; Ord. No. 549, 2-15-1971]

No owner, or agent of the owner, of any land located within the platting jurisdiction of the City of Troy, knowingly or with intent to defraud, may transfer, sell, agree to sell, or negotiate to sell that land by reference to or by other use of a plat of any purported subdivision of the land before the plat has been approved by the Board of Aldermen or Planning and Zoning Commission and recorded in the office of the appropriate County Recorder unless the owner or agent shall disclose in writing that such plat has not been approved by such Board of Aldermen or Planning and Zoning Commission and the sale is contingent upon the approval of such plat by such Board of Aldermen or Planning and Zoning Commission. Any person violating the provisions of this Section shall forfeit and pay to the City a penalty not to exceed three hundred dollars ($300.00) for each lot transferred or sold or agreed or negotiated to be sold; and the description by metes and bounds in the instrument of transfer or other document used in the process of selling or transferring shall not exempt the transaction from this penalty. The City may enjoin or vacate the transfer or sale or agreement by legal action, and may recover the penalty in such action.

Section 410.100 Subdivision Changes and Amendments.

[R.O. 2006 §410.100; CC 1980 §720.100; Ord. No 549, 2-15-71]

A. 
Requirements. After the improvement plans have been approved and all required fees paid, but before approval of the final plat, the developer shall guarantee the completion of improvements required by the approved improvement plans. The developer shall either:
1. 
Complete the improvements under the inspection of the appropriate inspecting agency and in accordance with the approved improvement plans; or
2. 
Guarantee the construction and completion of the improvements as set forth in the approved plans and the construction permit and based on the cost estimate approved by the City Engineer by posting an escrow agreement or letter of credit. Escrow agreements or letters of credit shall:

Guarantee the improvements set forth in the approved improvement plans by providing for deposit (cash, certified check or cashier's check) with an institution whose deposits are Federally insured by the United States Government of that sum of lawful monies of the United States of America or a letter of credit in the amount which the City Engineer shall reasonably estimate as the cost of said improvements as set forth in Subsection (B). The developer shall submit a listing of improvement quantities along with the estimated unit cost to facilitate the City Engineer completing the estimate; and
d. 
If there is an escrow sum, it shall be held in a special account by the escrow holder subject to the audit of the City Engineer, the City Attorney or the Finance Director.
e. 
If there is a letter of credit, it shall be subject to the audit of the City Engineer, the City Attorney or the Finance Director.
f. 
Provide for the release of all or any part of the monies so obligated upon demand by the Board of Aldermen in accordance with the requirements of this Section.
B. 
Amount Of Guarantee. Escrow agreements or letters of credit shall be established as required in Subsection (A), in the amount(s) as follows:
1. 
One hundred percent (100%) of the amount the City Engineer shall reasonably estimate as the cost of said improvements for categories that have not been installed at the time of the review and approval of the final plat.
2. 
Five percent (5%) of the amount the City Engineer shall reasonably estimate as the cost of said improvements for categories that have been installed but have not been completed at the time of the review and approval of the final plat.
C. 
Release Of Guarantee.
1. 
Partial release. The guarantee sum, as required in Subsection (B), shall be held by the escrow holder or the lender as in the agreement provided until such time as the City Engineer releases the cash or reduces the obligation secured under the letter of credit as permitted herein. Authorization shall be written and addressed to the escrow holder or the lender authorizing release. The City Engineer may authorize release for disbursement by the escrow holder or the lender for the payment of labor and materials used in the construction and installation of the improvements guaranteed as the work progresses. At no time will the amount in the escrow account or the obligation secured under the letter of credit depreciate to less than the cost of completing said remaining improvements. This sum shall be determined by using current market value of the materials and labor. In no case shall the escrow holder or lender release or reduce the letter of credit more than ninety-five percent (95%) of the estimated sum until improvements and installations have been completed in a satisfactory manner in accordance with the subdivision regulations and as approved by the City Engineer. Said partial releases shall be made for each category as installed within thirty (30) days of the installation and request from the developer.
2. 
Final release. The remaining five percent (5%) of the estimated cost of the improvements shall be released upon acceptance or final approval of said improvements by the Board of Aldermen. The estimated sum shall be held by the escrow holder or lender, as in the agreement provided, until such time as the Board of Aldermen shall accept said improvements by passage of a dedication ordinance. The City Engineer shall notify the escrow holder or lender of the Board of Aldermen's acceptance of the improvements and authorization of the final release in writing.
D. 
Transfer Of Permit And Replacement Guarantee. When title to a subdivision property is transferred from the original developer to a successor developer, and the construction permit for the improvements is properly transferred from the original developer to a successor, and a replacement escrow or letter of credit is established by the successor developer in accordance with the requirements of this Section, the City Engineer shall authorize the release of the guarantee of the original developer.
E. 
Inspections And Completion Of Improvements. The City Engineer shall inspect each category of improvement or utility work within twenty (20) business days after a request for such inspection has been filed with the Engineering Department by the developer and no inspection shall be required until the department receives such request. The City Engineer shall provide to the developer a report of deficiencies for correction. For purposes of this Section, an "inspection request" shall constitute and occur only on a completed written request on a form that shall include:
1. 
The category of improvement reflected in the deposit agreement that is requested to be inspected; and
2. 
The project name and City project number; and
3. 
A verified statement from the representative officer of the developer attesting that the information in the inspection request is true and accurate.
Nothing herein shall preclude the City Engineer from completing additional inspections at its discretion or as a courtesy to the developer.
The developer shall cause the correction of the deficiencies and notify the City Engineer of same for additional inspections within sixty (60) business days of the receipt of the original inspection report. The City Engineer, at his/her discretion, may extend the sixty (60) business day deadline to accommodate reasonable circumstances that would preclude the developer from completing the improvements.
F. 
Failure To Complete Improvements. The obligation of the developer to construct, complete, install and maintain the improvements indicated on the approved improvement plans shall not cease until the developer shall be finally released by the Board of Aldermen as provided in Subsection (C)(2). If, after the sixty (60) business day improvement completion period required in Subsection (E) or after a later period as extended pursuant to that Section, the improvements indicated on the approved improvement plans are not constructed, completed, installed, accepted as required, or if the developer shall violate any provision of the agreement, the City Engineer may notify the developer to show cause within not less than ten (10) days why the developer should not be declared in default.
Unless good cause is shown, no building or other permit shall be issued to the developer in the subdivision during any period in which the developer is in violation of the agreement or subdivision code relating to the subdivision. If the developer fails to cure any default or present compelling reason why no default should be declared, the City Engineer shall declare the developer in default and may take any one (1) or more of the following acts:
1. 
Deem the balance under the escrow agreement or letter of credit not theretofore released as forfeited to the City, to be then placed in an appropriate trust and agency account subject to the order of the City Engineer for such purposes as letting contracts to bring about the completion improvements indicated on the approved improvement plans or other appropriate purposes in the interest of the public safety, health and welfare; or
2. 
Require the developer or surety to pay to the City the balance of the surety not theretofore released; or
3. 
Require the developer to submit an additional cash sum sufficient to guarantee the completion of the improvements indicated on the approved improvement plans after recalculation in order to allow for any inflated or increased costs of constructing or maintaining the improvements.
The failure of a developer to complete the improvement obligations within the time provided by the escrow agreement or letter of credit (or any extension granted by the City), and including the payment of funds to the City due to such failure or an expiration of a letter of credit, shall be deemed an automatic act of default entitling the City to all remedies provided in this Section without further or prior notice. It shall be the sole responsibility of the developer to timely request an extension of any agreement if the improvements are not completed in the original time period provided by the agreement, and no right to any extension shall exist or be assumed.
