(A)   Upon completion of the proposed development, building, or construction, all muck, organic matter, clay, rock, and all other unsuitable materials, including, but not limited to previously-demolished buildings, building foundations, pipes, septic tanks, appurtenances, timberbrush, stumps, roots, rubbish, debris, and all other obstruction resting on or protruding through the surfaces of the existing grounds and excavated areas shall be completely removed by any developer, builder, or permit holder from all building pads and surrounding public rights-of-way, underground utility easements, drainage ponds, and storm water disposal and retention areas without positive drainage systems.
   (B)   Organic matter may be left when properly certified by a registered engineer attesting to compliance with the Florida Building Code.
   (C)   It shall be the responsibility of the developer to construct or improve, or to post a bond guaranteeing improvement to, all roadways adjacent to and within the property being developed. There shall be no requirement to bond improvements for private roadways on private property. All improvements for private roadways must be 100% complete prior to the issuance of certificate of occupancy. No certificate of occupancy shall be issued unless all private roadways are completed, or uncompleted portions guaranteed by posting bond.
   (D)   The term DEVELOPER shall include any party, including natural persons, partnerships, firms, corporations, or business entity conducting as a business demucking, excavation, fill, grading, subgrading, basecoursing, asphalt and concrete paving, sidewalk, swale, landscaping, irrigation, curbing, gutter, drainage system installation, pavement marking, or traffic sign, road sign, traffic signal, guardrail, or street lighting installation.
   (E)   The term ROADWAY shall include all public and private roads, highways, alleys, driveways, and parking areas, and other asphalt or concrete pavements.
   (F)   The improvement shall include, but not be limited to, demucking, excavation, fill, grading, subgrade, basecourse, asphalt and concrete paving, sidewalk, swale, landscaping, irrigation, curbing, gutter, drainage system, pavement marking, traffic sign, road sign, traffic signal, guardrail, and street lighting.
   (G)   All improvements shall be done in accordance with the following basic criteria:
      (1)   Design criteria. As a minimum, all pavements shall be designed in accordance with the latest edition of "Manual of Minimum Standards for Design, Construction, and Maintenance for Streets and Highways" as published by the State of Florida, and the provisions of the Broward County Water Resources Management Division's "Grading and Drainage Regulations and Standards," except as modified herein, and the provisions of the city code of ordinances.
      (2)   Construction criteria. Construction materials and methods shall meet the requirements of the latest edition of the Florida Department of Transportation "Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Construction" and supplements, except as modified herein, and the provisions of the city code of ordinances.
      (3)   Typical sections. Sketches of typical sections for various rights-of-way are attached to Ord. 792, which is on file in the office of the City Clerk and available for public inspection during the customary business hours.
      (4)   Subgrade. The entire width of the right-of-way shall be completely demucked before construction of the roadway begins. No material of classes A-5, A-7, or A-8 shall be allowed. All material supporting the roadway and shoulders shall be stabilized to have a minimum LBR of 40. Sub-grades shall be compacted to 95% of maximum density per AASHTO T-l80.
      (5)   Basecourse. Limerock bases shall be 6 inches for driveways and parking areas, 8 inches for local subdivision public and private roads, and l2 inches (in two lifts) for arterial roads. Limerock of the Miami formation shall be used, and shall have a minimum carbonate content of 60% (70% for arterial roads), and a minimum LBR of 100. Base material shall be compacted to a density of not less than 98% of maximum density as determined by AASHTO T-l80.
      (6)   Wearing (surface) courses.
            (a)   For all roads except arterial, the surface course is to be a minimum one and one-half (1½") inch asphaltic concrete FDOT type S-III (in two lifts).
            (b)   For arterial roads, surface courses are to be of asphaltic concrete construction in two lifts as follows:
               1.   Bottom course -minimum one and one-fourth (1 1/4") inch thick (D.O.T.) type S-1.
               2.   Top course -minimum three- quarter (3/4") inch thick (D.O.T.) type S-3. A tack coat shall be used between paving courses, and a prime coat shall be used on the finished rock base.
      (7)   Curb/gutter. All curb elements on arterial roads shall have a limerock foundation or "pad" of at least four-inch thickness, compacted to 98% of maximum density, per AASHTO T-180.
      (8)   Sidewalks. Sidewalks shall be of concrete with a minimum thickness of four inches, six-inch thickness required at driveways.
      (9)   Underground utilities. All underground utility mains and structures, for water, sewer, gas, drainage, telephone, power, cable TV, and others, must be installed, inspected, tested, and approved prior to any subgrade construction.
      (10)   Traffic engineering. The construction plans must include plans for traffic signs, street number signs, pavement markings, and street lighting.
   (H)   Detail plans must be reviewed and approved by the Engineering Department.
