927.03  PROCEDURE PRELIMINARY TO DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW CONDOMINIUM DEVELOPMENT.
   When the owner of a tract of land wishes to develop a New Condominium Development thereon, such owner shall submit to the City Engineer for his review a water and sanitary sewer utility plan for the use and development of such tract of land.  The City Engineer shall investigate and ascertain whether the water and sanitary sewer utility plan complies with the following conditions:
   (a)   The water and sanitary sewer utility plan shall provide for the installation of water lines, sanitary sewer lines and necessary related appurtenances, as determined by the City Engineer, in accordance with construction specifications established in Chapter 931 of the Codified Ordinances.
   (b)   The water and sanitary sewer utility plan shall include an accurate  centerline survey for all water and sanitary sewer lines to be installed within the New Condominium Development.  The water and sanitary sewer utility plan shall include extending all water lines and sanitary sewer lines within the New Condominium Development to the property lines of the development as the City Engineer shall determine is necessary so that municipal utility services can be provided to areas beyond the boundary of the New Condominium Development in the future.
   (c)   The owner of the New Condominium Development shall submit along with the water and sanitary sewer utility plan a deed document conveying to The City of Springfield, Ohio a forty foot (40') wide easement, extending Twenty feet (20') on each side of the surveyed center line of the water lines and sanitary sewer lines described in the water and sanitary sewer utility plan, and conveying to The City of Springfield, Ohio good title in the water and sanitary sewer infrastructure which the City will operate and maintain upon acceptance of dedication thereof.  The owner may request that the City Engineer permit a narrower easement in the event appurtenances (such as, by way of example, water meters or water shutoffs) will not be extended from both sides of a line or in the event a forty foot (40') width is not possible. The said deed document shall convey the easement and utility infrastructure to the City at no cost to the City, shall be in a form approved by the Law Director and shall warrant that the easement is free and clear of all encumbrances.  Neither receipt of a water and sanitary sewer utility plan with an executed easement document included therewith nor approval of the water and sanitary sewer utility plan by the City Engineer shall constitute accepting dedication of the easement described in the easement document by the City.
