(A)   Installation prior to street widening or paving - Except as provided herein, all facilities, including service laterals, shall be installed in the ground prior to street widening or the paving of new streets. The city engineer may authorize installation of facilities after street improvements are made if the installation will not require reconstruction or repair of the street improvements or if unusual circumstances warrant. At the time of approval of the tentative map for a proposed subdivision, the planning commission may modify this requirement for all or part of a subdivision where, due to physical conditions, undue hardship would be caused.
   (B)   Minimize hazards - The developer shall place above-ground associated equipment and access points so as to safeguard the public against any hazard created by such equipment and access points and so as to enhance the appearance of the neighborhood.
   (C)   Placement of facilities - Facilities shall be placed within the street, alley or walkway dedication or in easements adjacent thereto obtained by the utility companies, as approved by the city engineer. The city engineer may allow deviations from this requirement if compliance is deemed impractical, or if any conflicting paramount law requires such deviations.
   (D)   Arrangements with utility companies - The developer shall make all necessary arrangements for underground installations and for relocation of existing facilities with the utility companies involved, subject to applicable utility company rules, regulations and tariffs on file with the commission. The developer shall provide the trenching, conduits and miscellaneous substructures necessary for the installation of cable television and electronic gear.
