14-5-5: STREETS:
   A.   Street Layout: Streets in new subdivisions shall connect to existing stub streets from adjacent subdivisions. If adjacent land is undeveloped, stub streets shall be provided at reasonable locations to provide convenient access for future development.
   B.   Multiple Access Points Required: A minimum of two (2) points of ingress and egress are required for residential subdivisions unless the fire chief or his/her designee determines that more than one access point is not necessary to protect the public health and safety. The owner/developer may comply with this requirement by platting stub streets which will connect to future streets.
   C.   General Design Principles:
      1.   Public and private streets shall be designed to minimize cut through traffic in residential areas.
      2.   Local streets shall incorporate traffic calming measures to reduce vehicle speeds and promote pedestrian safety. Four-way intersections should be avoided.
      3.   Streets shall be designed to provide safe and convenient access between neighborhoods. Local streets should be extended to provide access between adjoining neighborhoods at appropriate intervals.
   D.   Compliance with Transportation Master Plan: As a condition of subdivision approval, the owner/subdivider shall install street extensions and widening as recommended by the city transportation master plan.
   E.   Eminent Domain: Nothing in this section shall obligate the city to purchase rights of way or to exercise its right of eminent domain, or to create or recognize any right of inverse condemnation whatsoever.
   F.   Cul-De-Sacs: Unless otherwise approved by the city engineer, rights of way terminating in cul-de-sacs shall be no longer than four hundred fifty feet (450') in length. Turnaround areas, with a right of way diameter of one hundred feet (100') and a paved diameter of not less than eighty feet (80'), shall be provided at the terminus of all cul-de-sacs. When dead end streets providing access for one or more lots are proposed in a subdivision, adequate turnarounds shall be provided as follows:
      1.   Where a street dead ends into a subsequent phase of the same subdivision, a temporary, paved, eighty foot (80') diameter turnaround and permanent right of way easement shall be required.
      2.   Where a street dead ends at property that is not part of a subsequent subdivision phase, either a bubble inside the subdivision, as shown in the city standard drawings, or an asphalted eighty foot (80') diameter turnaround and permanent right of way easement on the adjacent property, shall be provided.
   G.   Streets Along Subdivision Boundaries: Streets along a proposed subdivision boundary shall be constructed to city standards and according to the city master transportation plan.
   H.   Half Streets: Half streets along subdivision boundaries or within any part of a subdivision are not permitted unless specifically approved by the city council as part of a development agreement.
   I.   Dedication: Except as provided in section 14-5-6 of this chapter, all streets shall be dedicated for use by the public.
   J.   Street Name and Traffic Control Signs Required: The owner/developer shall install street name and traffic control signs to identify all public and private streets. Street signs shall be located at all intersections, including cul-de-sacs.
      1.   Streets may be given names in addition to numbers. When so named, street signs shall include both the name and street number. Names for streets must be approved by the city and by the Salt Lake County recorder.
      2.   All signs shall comply with the "Manual On Uniform Traffic Control Devices".
      3.   The owner/developer shall pay for and install traffic regulatory signs in accordance with the "Manual On Uniform Traffic Control Devices", as required by the city engineer.
   K.   Protection Strips:
      1.   Private Protection Strips Prohibited: Any subdivision, dedication or conveyance of any kind which results in the creation of a private protection strip is hereby declared to constitute an illegal subdivision of land.
      2.   City-Owned Protection Strips Allowed: City owned protection strips are allowed for the purpose of distributing and recovering costs to benefiting properties related to off site improvements not covered by impact fees. Fees collected for the release of protection strips shall reflect the proportionate benefit of the developing property to the remainder value of the right of way and improvements.
   L.   Utilities Installed Before Paving: Asphalt paving operations shall not begin until all public utilities (electrical power, natural gas, telephone, cable television, culinary water, irrigation water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer) are installed under the streets. Provisions shall be made for future installation of electrical power, traffic signal conduit, natural gas, telephone, and cable television through sleeves or conduits placed under the pavement. The owner/developer shall be responsible for coordinating the timely installation of these utilities. The owner/developer shall provide, at or before the preconstruction conference, written verification acceptable to the city engineer that the utilities have been notified of the locations available for installation of the utilities and the timetable for the street paving.
