.010 Where the City Council finds that, upon development of an undeveloped or substantially undeveloped area of the City, said area cannot be adequately served or protected by existing fire protection facilities, the City Council may by resolution establish a fire protection facilities plan for the providing of new fire protection facilities for said area. The term "fire protection facilities" as used herein shall include the land, structures and equipment as determined by the City Council to be reasonably necessary to provide adequate fire protection for the area of benefit. Said fire protection facilities plan shall establish the boundaries of the area of benefit, the actual or estimated cost of said facilities, and the method of apportionment of the cost of said facilities.
.020 The City may require a subdivider to pay a pro rata share of the actual or estimated cost of said facilities as a condition of approval of any final map or parcel map having boundaries wholly or partly within the area of benefit.
.025 Notwithstanding the requirements of subsection .020 of this section, in the event the subdivider or developer of property enters into an agreement with the City prior to the date payment of said fees would otherwise be required pursuant to subsection .020 of this section and such agreement provides for a payment date different from the date otherwise specified in subsection .020 of this section, payment of said fees shall be required at the time specified in said agreement.
.030 The City may require that a subdivider install and furnish all or any portion of the facilities specified in said fire protection facilities plan, including facilities of a supplemental size, capacity or number for the benefit of property not within the subdivision, and that said facilities be dedicated to the public, as a condition of approval of any final map or parcel map having boundaries wholly or partly within the area of benefit.
.040 If a subdivider is required to install or furnish facilities which include facilities of a supplemental size, capacity or number for the benefit of property not within the subdivision, the City shall enter into a reimbursement agreement with such subdivider to reimburse such subdivider from fees received by the City pursuant to subsection .020 of this section for that portion of the actual cost of said facilities in excess of said subdivider's pro rata share thereof as determined pursuant to the provisions of said fire protection facilities plan.
