All subdivisions must provide for the following improvements and comply with the following standards:
A. 
Streets.
(1) 
The arrangements of streets in a new subdivision shall make provisions for the continuation of the existing streets in adjoining areas, or their proper protection where adjoining land is not subdivided, insofar as such may be deemed necessary by the planning and zoning commission for public requirements. The street arrangement must be such as to cause no unnecessary hardship to owners of adjoining property when they plat their own land and seek to provide for convenient access to it.
(2) 
Minor streets shall approach the major or collector streets at an angle of not less than eighty degrees.
(3) 
Half streets proposed along a subdivision boundary or within any part of the subdivision shall not be approved.

(6) 
Curbs, gutters and sidewalks shall be required and shall be constructed to City standards and specifications.
B. 
Lots.
(1) 
The lot arrangement and design shall be such that lots will provide satisfactory and desirable sites for building and be properly related to topography and to existing and probable future requirements.
(2) 
All remnants of lots below the minimum size left over after subdividing a larger tract must be added to adjacent lots rather than be allowed to remain as unusable parcels.
(3) 
No standards are given for lots in subdivisions for multi-family, planned unit development, mobile home, commercial or industrial purposes. Subdivision plans for such land uses shall be submitted to show land usage, proposed structures, vehicular and pedestrian circulation, parking, public use if any, landscaping and dedicated open spaces, and the plan shall include all necessary drawings to demonstrate the character and physical relationships of all proposed development within the subdivision to adjacent land uses and circulation systems.
(4) 
The planning and zoning commission may require that easements for drainage through an adjoining property be provided by the subdivider, and easements of not less than ten feet in width for water, sewer, drainage, power lines and other utilities shall be provided in the subdivision when required by the commission.
(5) 
The subdivider shall allocate and convey to the City five percent of the total land area of his subdivision for public purposes, at a location agreed upon by the City and the subdivider, or, at the option of the City, the subdivider shall, in lieu of such conveyance of land, pay to the City a cash amount equal to eleven percent of the raw land value to the total land area in the proposed subdivision. The price of such land shall be established and agreed upon by the City and the subdivider prior to accepting the final plat of such subdivision. If the City and the subdivider fail to agree on the value of such land, the value shall be established by three independent appraisers mutually acceptable to the subdivider and the City. The costs of such appraisal shall be shared equally between the City and the subdivider. The payments made in lieu of conveyance of land shall be retained in a separate account and used only for public purposes.

D. 
Sewage disposal.
(1) 
Except in cases where it is deemed by the City engineer and the City council as impossible to serve a proposed subdivision, all subdivisions will be required to connect to the City's sanitary sewage system.

(2) 
The system shall be constructed to meet or exceed City standards and shall be approved by the state.
(3)

All fire hydrants shall be furnished by the City and shall remain its property and be accessible to the City and subject to its control; provided, that it shall be the subdivider's responsibility and expense to reimburse the City for the cost of the fire hydrants. It shall be the subdivider's responsibility to install such fire hydrants; however, such installation shall be done under the direction and supervision of the City engineer.
G. 
Protection strips. Where subdivision streets parallel contiguous property of other owners, the subdivider may, upon approval of the planning and zoning commission, retain a protection strip not less than one foot in width between the street and adjacent property; provided, that an agreement, approved by the City attorney, has been made by the subdivider, contracting to deed to the owners of the contiguous property the one foot or larger protection strip for a consideration named in the agreement, such consideration to be not more than the fair cost of land in the protection strip, the street improvement property chargeable to the contiguous property, plus the value of one-half of the land in the street at the time of agreement, together with interest at a fair rate from the time of agreement until the time of subdivision of such contiguous property. One copy of the agreement shall be submitted by the City attorney to the planning and zoning commission prior to approval of the final plat.

(2) 
Streets shall be improved with asphalt or concrete.

E. 
Except as expressly modified above, a rural residential subdivision shall provide all of the improvements and comply with all of the other standards set forth in § 22-17 of Chapter 22 of the Evanston City Code.
[Amended by Ord. No. 81-62]
Refunds to the subdivider for extension of water, sewer, storm sewer mains, City streets and utilities as provided for in section 22-17 or as directed by the City council shall be made as follows:
A. 
Refunds will be made:
[Amended 10-2-2012 by Ord. No. 12-04]
(1) 
When extensions are made outside of the subdivision boundary and are necessary to provide services to the subdivision; and
(2) 
When a subdivider constructs an extension in a platted, but unimproved subdivision, or a phase of a platted, but unimproved subdivision, and the subdivider does not own all of the lots within the platted subdivision or the phase of the platted subdivision, and another owner of a lot within the subdivision connects to or uses the extension.
B. 
In order to receive a refund, the subdivider must petition the City to set up an extension account by providing the City with complete and accurate information showing the costs incurred to construct the extension. The City will evaluate the costs associated with construction of the extension and establish a cost per foot to be charged to property owners who connect to or use the extension which has been installed by the subdivider. In determining the cost per foot of the extension, the total cost of extending the main line, street or utility, including engineering and construction cost, will be divided by the total front footage of the property bordering on the extension. If, after the cost per foot has been computed and the cost figures have been filed with the City, a new road intersects the extension, the cost per foot will remain the same as originally computed.
[Amended 10-2-2012 by Ord. No. 12-04]
C. 
The City will maintain accurate cost records and establish a ledger sheet for each extension.
[Amended 10-2-2012 by Ord. No. 12-04]
D. 
When property located adjacent to the water, sewer and storm sewer mains and other City streets and utilities is developed and the owner desires to connect to such line extensions and City streets and utilities, the owner of the property shall, before obtaining a building permit or connecting to or using such mains, streets or utilities, pay the City a fee based on the number of proposed units in the development and determined by the City engineer after reviewing the ultimate design population and cost of the project. The City engineer may consider the ultimate design capacity, the potential number of units in both the original property and the proposed development, the total actual cost of the extension of main lines, streets and utilities and any other factors in making his determination. Such fee shall be in addition to the regular water and sewer tapping or connection fees as provided for in Chapters 19 and 23 of this Code.
[Amended 10-2-2012 by Ord. No. 12-04]
E. 
When property located not adjacent to the water, sewer and storm sewer mains and other City streets and utilities is developed and the owner desires to connect to such line extensions, streets and utilities, the owner of that property shall, before connecting to or using such mains, streets or utilities, pay the City a fee based on the number of proposed units in the development and determined by the City engineer after reviewing the ultimate design population and cost of the project. The City engineer may consider the ultimate design capacity, the potential number of units in both the original property and the proposed development, the total actual cost of the extension of main lines, streets and utilities and any other factors in making his determination. Such fee shall be in addition to the regular water and sewer tapping or connection fees as provided for in chapters 19 and 23 of this Code.
F. 
The regular connection or tapping fee will be retained by the City.
G. 
If the original subdivider paid for the cost of the extension, the additional amount will be refunded to the original subdivider or other agent as he may direct. If the City paid for all of the cost of the original extension, the City shall retain the additional connection fee. If the City paid for part of the cost of the original extension, the additional connection cost shall be divided between the City and the original subdivider based on the design capacity paid for by the City and the original subdivider.
H. 
In the event that only one side of the street can be developed, the cost will be the same as provided in subsection D of this section.
I. 
Reimbursements for the extensions shall extend for a period of ten years from the date of completion of the main line, street or utility, after which no further reimbursement shall be made to the subdivider. After ten years, no further refunds shall be made to the subdivider, nor shall the reimbursement include interest or be for a greater sum than the initial cost of the extensions. The date of completion shall be the date the subdivider submits to the City the total cost for the extension and certifies to the City that the costs submitted are the total actual costs of such extensions.
J. 
If a particular situation does not fit into the above policy, the City council shall make such agreements as necessary to satisfy the intent of this policy.
