All required gas mains, water mains, storm drains, underdrains or other underground facilities shall be installed prior to the construction of any pavement.
Width of pavement for various types of streets or roadways shall be as follows:
Collector streets or feeder streets, as defined in Chapter 195, Subdivision of Land, shall have a minimum width of 28 feet.
Arterial roads shall be in conformance with the requirements of the state or county applicable to the roads.
The minimum width of pavement for all other types of streets or roadways shall be 24 feet, except that Forest Street between Cemetery Street and the southerly side of east/west portion of Forest Street may be paved a minimum width of 20 feet without curbs.
In determining the nature or type of street under the above classification, the decision of the Council shall be final.
All culs-de-sac shall have a minimum of 50 feet radii with the paved area of the circle to be 24 feet wide including curb, with an outside paved radius of 40 feet, together with a concrete curb on the inner and outer circumference of the cul-de-sac.
The inner or center area of the cul-de-sac shall be subgraded to within eight inches of the top of the concrete curb and the remaining depth of eight inches filled with a good quality, fibrous topsoil, firmly rolled for compaction, to bring the grade to the top of the concrete curb as set forth above.
The entire area of the cul-de-sac, with the exception of the paved area, shall be seeded with a good turf seed for either sunny or shady location, under the direction of the Borough Engineer.
[Amended by Ord. No. 324]
The space between the curb and property line on all streets shall have the brush removed, and this space shall be properly graded. Trees shall be removed where the cut or fill will either kill the trees or make them dangerous. The Borough Engineer shall designate such trees which are not to be removed.
All streets hereafter constructed in the Borough shall have concrete curbs installed in accordance with standard specifications approved by the Borough Engineer, which specifications shall also be approved by the Council. The Borough Engineer may include in the specifications provisions requiring the addition of coloring matter to the mix of the concrete specified and such other matters which he shall feel are necessary and proper.
