12.30.010 Definitions.

The following are definitions provided for use in administering this chapter. The public works director shall have the authority to resolve questions of interpretation or conflicts between definitions.

A. “Development” means any construction or expansion of a building, structure, or use, or any changes in the use of land governed by any part of the Bonney Lake Development Code (BLMC Titles 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, and 19).

B. “Latecomer agreement” means an agreement authorized by RCW 35.72.010 through 35.72.040.

C. “Mapped street” means a future public road as designated on the Future Road Maps adopted as Exhibit A to Ordinance 1700 including any subsequent amendments by the city council. (Ord. 1700 § 2, 2023; Ord. 1550 § 2, 2016; Ord. 1526 § 2, 2015; Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.020 Dedication of right-of-way for mapped streets.

Where a mapped street is within the boundaries of, adjacent to, or abutting a development, the developer may be required to dedicate the entire right-of-way for the construction of the mapped street. All developments adjacent to or containing mapped streets must be designed to provide sufficient room for right-of-way and setbacks from mapped streets. (Ord. 1449 § 1, 2013; Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.030 Construction of mapped streets.

A developer may be required, as a condition of development approval, to construct a mapped street across his or her property. Property owners shall extend the mapped street across their property at the time development of the structure(s) occurs or when a public or private road or street, including frontage roads, is extended to the boundary of their property, whichever occurs first. Construction of the mapped street will be subject to the terms of BLMC 12.04.020 and governed by then-current Bonney Lake design standards. (Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.040 Latecomer agreements.

A developer whose development has been conditioned upon the construction of a mapped street may request the city to enter into a latecomer agreement. (Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.050 Restriction of access to State Route 410.

To achieve traffic safety objectives and maintain traffic flow, the public works director or designee may restrict or prohibit the construction of driveways or other means of vehicular ingress and egress on State Route 410 to and from abutting development. The relevant portions of Chapter 468-52 WAC, regarding standards for the management of access to state highways, shall apply and are incorporated by reference as if set forth in full; provided, however, that the public works director or designee may impose requirements that more stringently restrict access when necessary to preserve traffic flow and promote public safety. (Ord. 1270 § 1, 2008; Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.060 Temporary access allowed.

A developer may be granted temporary approval to use an alternative means of access from the property until a mapped street can be built, so that the developer can make reasonable use of the property. The alternative means of access must cease once the mapped street has been constructed. (Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.070 Maintenance responsibility after construction of mapped streets.

In cases where a mapped street is not dedicated to, and accepted by, the city as a public street, but remains a private frontage road, the private property owners retain sole responsibility for maintenance and repair of the mapped street. (Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).

12.30.080 Appeals.

Any decision to approve, condition or deny a development proposal based on the requirements of this chapter may be appealed pursuant to the provisions of BLMC Title 14 with respect to the underlying development approval. (Ord. 1204 § 1, 2006).
