§ 151.005  EXPERIMENTAL SUBDIVISIONS.
   (A)   The Board of Commissioners may waive or modify the standards and requirements of these regulations if, in their judgment, an unusual or experimental subdivision might prove of considerable merit toward:
      (1)   The use of unusual materials in constructing required improvements; and
      (2)   A new or untried design concept in the city area which appears promising.
   (B)   The Board of Commissioners shall require the subdivider to provide a written proposal with the layout plan that states the nature of the experiment and justifies the reasons why the requirements of this chapter cannot be applied.
   (C)   In granting waivers, modifications, and approvals for experimental subdivisions, the Board of Commissioners may require such conditions as will, in its judgment, substantially secure the objectives of the standards or requirements so waived, modified, or approved. These conditions may include, without being limited to personal, surety, performance, or maintenance bonds and affidavits, covenants, or other legal instruments.
   (D)   In addition, if the lands covered lie within a flood hazard area as designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, they must comply with the requirements of Chapter 150.
