When development engineering plans are approved and plats within the development engineering plan are platted, drainage, utilities, and streets will be required to be extended to the edge of adjacent platted land and all such improvements must comply with this Code of Ordinances and the city’s Engineering Design Standards. In addition, street access for residential subdivision development is required as follows:
   (a)   Street secondary access.
      1.   Residential developments served by only one street access, or a mutual access easement shall provide a second street access, or mutual access easement, prior to reaching a level of service B (LOS B) of 980 vehicles per day based on serving up to 103 single-family units or up to 147 multi-family units, or a combination of units, using trip generation rates of 9.52 trips per day for a single-family unit and 6.65 trips per day for a multi-family unit, as provided by the Institute of Transportation Engineers Trip Generation, 9th ed., 2012. The second street access or mutual access easement shall be a minimum of 24' wide, gravel surface maintained with dust control, or paved surface, as approved by the city engineer. All existing units served by the one paved access shall apply toward total, regardless of the number of owners or subdivisions served by the access.
      2.   The city director of planning and development services and city engineer are hereby authorized and directed to interpret, enforce, and grant waivers from the street access requirement. Such waivers may be granted only when compliance is unnecessary and impractical and a waiver would not adversely impair public access.
