(1)   Necessary rights-of way for transportation and circulation, drainage and flood control facilities, and utilities included.
(2)   This requirement shall not apply to subdivisions where the resultant parcel sizes are at least twice the minimum lot size for the land use zoning district in which they are located.
(3)   This requirement applies to all subdivisions creating 5 or more parcels. It will not apply to subdivisions created by Parcel Map unless the subdivision is adjacent to an existing paved road.
(4)   Required on driveway approach when accessed from a paved road. For alternate paving standards in parking areas, refer to § 83.11.090 (Parking and Loading Development Standards).
(5)   A rolled asphalt berm may be substituted at the discretion of Public Works.
(6)   These requirements may be waived within infill areas where there is no plan or financing mechanism in place to provide such improvements to other existing properties and where, as a result, such improvements will not be connected to other infrastructure.
(7)   The Public Works Department shall require curbs and gutters, if necessary, to control vehicle access and street drainage. May be required by Caltrans on State highways.
(8)   Sidewalks may be required on both sides of the street by the Public Works Department if needed for pedestrian safety.

(11)   This requirement applies to all subdivisions creating 5 or more parcels. It will also apply to subdivisions created by Parcel Map if the provisions of § 83.09.060 cannot be met.
(12)   Individual well allowed if no water purveyor is available and when consistent with Water Master requirements in adjudicated groundwater basins.
(13)   Sewers shall be required within established sewer service districts and outside such districts when required by the WQCB. Projects shall connect to a sewer system when the nearest property line is within 200 ft. of a sewer line. This requirement shall be increased by 100 ft. for each residential lot in the project.
(14)   Septic systems are allowed only if the subject parcel is consistent with the WQCB requirements or is not within sewer service district.
