A. 
Any person applying for a building permit for any proposed commercial, industrial or subdivision development in the City of Kennett shall provide, as part of the building permit application, a site plan of the proposed development which shall show the location of all underground utilities, including, but not limited to, existing and proposed fire protection mains and fire hydrants.

In the event the nearest fire hydrant to the proposed development is located more than three hundred (300) feet from the closest point of the main structure in the proposed development, would require the crossing of a major roadway to access the hydrant to provide fire protection for the proposed development, or is in a location which, in the opinion of the Fire Chief, would make access to the hydrant difficult when providing fire protection to the proposed development or has a rated free flow of less than one thousand (1,000) gallons per minute flow or should the proposed development restrict future extension of water mains to adjoining properties or should the proposed development prohibit connection to other fire protection mains, the applicant shall be responsible for extending fire protection mains and for providing an adequate number of fire hydrants to meet the connections and fire protection requirement of the Kennett Fire Department.

All fire hydrants required under this Section shall have an underground shutoff valve located with each hydrant so as to shut off the individual hydrants for maintenance without shutting off service to an area.

In developments where a large complex is proposed, a looped water main system with adequate hydrants, as approved by the Fire Chief, or his designee, shall be installed around the complex.
