Should the Township conclude, on the basis of the criteria cited above, that wetlands exist on the site, contrary to the applicant's findings:
[a] 
The Township and the applicant may select a mutually acceptable, qualified professional to reexamine the site, using the above criteria, to determine if wetlands exist. All costs for such work shall be borne by the applicant. The Township shall, at no time, be held accountable for any wetlands found to exist by any state or federal agencies.
[b] 
As an alternative to the procedure described in Subsection B(4)(d)[4][a] above, the Township may, at its discretion, request that either the United States Army Corps of Engineers, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources or the United States Fish and Wildlife Service verify the existence of wetlands. In the event that such agency or agencies verify the existence of wetlands, the applicant shall be required to perform a delineation in accordance with the requirements of Subsection B(4)(d)[2] above and secure any required wetlands permits or waivers pursuant thereto in accordance with the requirements of Subsection B(4)(d)[5] below.
[5] 
Unless it is clearly evident in the plans submitted by the applicant and/or through any field review by the Township Engineer that no disturbance to the designated wetlands is anticipated, the accepted delineation shall be submitted to the appropriate regulatory agencies, including but not limited to the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Resources, for requisite wetlands permits or waivers pursuant thereto. All potential impacts on wetlands shall conform to applicable regulations, as amended.
(5) 
[3]Transportation impact study.
(a) 
A transportation impact study shall be undertaken for all major subdivisions and land developments as defined in Subsection B(5)(c) below. This study will enable the Township to assess the impact of a proposed development on the local transportation system. Its purpose is to ensure that proposed developments do not adversely affect the transportation network and to identify any traffic problems associated with access from the site to the existing transportation network. The study's purpose is also to delineate solutions to potential problems and to present improvements to be incorporated into the proposed development. The study shall assist in the protection of air quality, the conservation of energy and the encouragement of public transportation.
(b) 
In accordance with the requirements of the Township, the traffic impact study shall be prepared by a qualified traffic engineer with previous traffic study experience. The procedures and standards for the traffic impact study are set forth in Subsection B(5)(d) below.
(c) 
Subdivisions and land developments that require a transportation impact study.
[1] 
A transportation impact study shall be required for all subdivisions and land developments that meet one or more of the following criteria:
[a] 
Residential: a development consisting of 50 or more dwelling units.
[Amended 10-22-1990 by Ord. No. 90-49]
[b] 
Commercial: a commercial building or buildings consisting of 50,000 square feet or more of gross leasable floor space.
[c] 
Office: a development consisting of 50,000 square feet or more of gross leasable floor space.
[d] 
Industrial: a development consisting of 50,000 square feet or more of gross leasable floor space.
[e] 
Institutional: all developments.
[2] 
The Board of Commissioners, at its discretion, may request the preparation of a traffic impact study for any other subdivision or land development.
(d) 
The transportation impact study shall contain, but not be limited to, the following information:
[1] 
General site description. The site description shall include the size, location, proposed land uses, construction staging and completion date of the proposed land development. If the development is residential, types of dwelling units and number of bedrooms shall also be included. A brief description of other major existing and proposed land developments within the study area shall be provided. The general site description shall also include probable socioeconomic characteristics of potential site users to the extent that they may affect the transportation needs of the site (i.e., the number of senior citizens).
[2] 
Transportation facilities description.
[a] 
The description shall contain a full documentation of the proposed internal and existing external transportation system. This description shall include proposed internal vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian circulation, all proposed ingress and egress locations, all internal roadway width and rights-of-way, parking conditions, traffic channelizations and any traffic signals or other intersection control devices within the site. The site design shall be shown to maximize potential public transportation usage to and from the development, such as providing adequate turning radii at all access points to allow a bus to enter the development. Bus shelter and sign locations shall be designated where appropriate.
[b] 
The report shall describe the entire external roadway system within the study area. Major intersections in the study area shall be identified and sketched. All existing and proposed public transportation services and facilities within a one-mile radius of the site shall also be documented. All future highway improvements, including proposed construction and traffic signalization, shall be noted. This information shall be obtained from the 12-Year Highway Capital Program for the Delaware Valley Region, the Radnor Township Comprehensive Plan and from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Any proposed roadway improvements resulting from proposed surrounding developments shall also be recorded.
[3] 
Existing traffic conditions. Existing traffic conditions shall be measured and documented for all streets and intersections in the study area. Traffic volumes shall be recorded for existing average daily traffic, existing peak-hour traffic and for the subdivision's peak-hour traffic. Complete traffic counts at all major intersections in the study area shall be conducted, encompassing the peak highway and development-generated hour(s), and documentation shall be included in the report. A volume capacity analysis based upon existing volumes shall be performed during the peak hour(s) and the peak development-generated hour(s) for all roadways and major intersections in the study area. Levels of service shall be determined for each location. This analysis will determine the adequacy of the existing roadway system to serve the current traffic demand. Roadways and/or intersections experiencing Levels of Service E or F shall be noted as congestion locations.
[4] 
Transportation impact of the development. Estimation of vehicular trips to result from the proposal shall be completed for both the street system and the development-generated peak hours(s). Vehicular trip generation rates to be used for this calculation shall be obtained from the Trip Generation Rates Table, below.[4] These development-generated traffic volumes shall be provided for the inbound and outbound traffic movements as estimated. The reference source(s) and methodology followed shall be cited. These generated volumes shall be distributed to the study area and assigned to the existing streets and intersections throughout the study area. Documentation of all assumptions used in the distribution and assignment phase shall be provided. Traffic volumes shall be assigned to all access points. Pedestrian volumes shall also be calculated, if applicable. If school crossings are to be used, pedestrian volumes shall be assigned to each crossing. Any characteristics of the site that will cause unusual trip generation rates and/or traffic flows shall be noted.
[4]
Editor's Note: The Trip Generation Rate Table is included at the end of this chapter.
[5] 
Analysis of transportation impact. The total future traffic demand based on full occupancy of the proposed subdivision or land development shall be calculated. This demand shall consist of the combination of the existing traffic expanded to the completion year, the development generated traffic and the traffic generated by other proposed developments in the study area. A volume/capacity analysis shall also be conducted using the total future demand and the future roadway capacity. If staging of the proposed development is anticipated, calculations for each stage of completion shall be made. This analysis shall be performed using the peak highway hour(s) and peak development-generated hour(s) for all streets and major intersections in the study area. Volume/capacity calculations shall be completed for all major intersections. All access points and pedestrian crossings shall be examined as to the feasibility of installing traffic signals. This evaluation shall compare the projected traffic and pedestrian volumes to the warrants for traffic signal installation. Levels of service for all streets and intersections shall be listed.
[6] 
Conclusions and recommended improvements.
[a] 
All streets and/or intersections showing a Level of Service below C shall be considered deficient, and specific recommendations for the elimination of these problems shall be listed. This listing of recommended improvements shall include, but not be limited to, the following elements: internal circulation design, site access location and design, external street and intersection design and improvements and traffic signal installation and operation, including signal timing and transit-design improvements.
[b] 
Existing and/or future public transportation service shall also be addressed. A listing of all actions to be undertaken to increase present public transportation usage and improve service, if applicable, shall be included.
[c] 
The listing of recommended improvements for both streets and transit shall include, for each improvement, the party responsible for the improvement, the cost and funding of the improvement and the completion date for the improvement.
[d] 
The Planning Commission shall review the transportation impact study to analyze its adequacy in solving any traffic problems that will occur due to the land development or subdivision and make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners.
[e] 
The Board of Commissioners may decide that certain improvements contained in the study on or adjacent to the site are required for preliminary plan approval and, if acceptable to the applicant, may attach these conditions to the preliminary approval.
[f] 
The improvement plans shall not be submitted to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation until such plans are approved by the Board of Commissioners. This submittal to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation shall be accompanied by comments of the Planning Commission and the Delaware County Planning Commission.
