24.56.010 Generally.

The subdivider may be required to install improvements for the benefit of the subdivision which may contain supplemental size, capacity, or number for the benefit of property not within the subdivision as a condition precedent to the approval of a subdivision or parcel map, and thereafter to dedicate such improvements to the public. However, the subdivider shall be reimbursed for that portion of the cost of such improvements equal to the difference between the amount it would have cost the subdivider to install such improvements to serve the subdivision only and the actual cost of such improvements pursuant to the provisions of the Subdivision Map Act. [Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.14.010].

24.56.020 Public hearing – Notice.

No charge, area of benefit, or local benefit district shall be established unless and until a public hearing in accordance with the provisions of PGMC 24.12.030 is held thereon by the city council and the city council finds that the fee or charge and the area of benefit or local benefit district is reasonably related to the cost of such supplemental improvements and the actual ultimate beneficiaries thereof.

In addition to the notice required by PGMC 24.12.030, written notice of the hearing shall be given to the subdivider and to those who own property within the proposed area of benefit as shown on the latest equalized assessment roll, and the potential users of the supplemental improvements insofar as they can be ascertained at the time. Such notices shall be mailed by the city clerk at least 10 days prior to the date established for hearing. [Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.14.020].

24.56.030 Imposition of charges on benefited area.

If the city has adopted a local drainage or sanitary sewer plan or map as required for the imposition of fees therefor, or has established an area of benefit for bridges or major thoroughfares as provided in this title, the city may impose a reasonable charge on property within the area benefited and may provide for the collection of said charge as set forth in this title. The city may enter into reimbursement agreements with a subdivider who constructs said facilities, bridges, or thoroughfares and the charges collected by the city therefor may be utilized to reimburse the subdivider as set forth in this chapter. [Ord. 09-005 § 37, 2009; Ord. 879 N.S. § 4, 1976. Formerly 24.14.030].
