New streets may be constructed by (1) developers of land areas at their own expense; (2) abutting property owners by cash or private contracts; (3) by creation of local improvement districts; or (4) by action of the city council, any of which construction shall be in accordance with the requirements of this chapter. [Ord. 649 Ch. VII, § 4, 1967.]

16.28.050 Street improvement by private contract.

Prior to the granting of a permit for any street or surfacing work on public street right-of-way to be done by private contract, the party or parties requesting the improvement shall provide all necessary surveys, grades, engineering design data, plans, specifications, and subsequent to issuance of the permit, all necessary construction staking, all of which shall be certified by an engineer or land surveyor registered in the state of Washington. However, as an alternate to using the said registered engineer or land surveyor the city may do this work at cost for the party or parties if mutually agreed. The permittee or contractor actually doing the work and subsequent to issuance of the permit shall notify the DPW in writing at least 24 hours in advance of commencing operations or commencing any construction phase. The DPW, or his designated assistant, shall check the work as to line and grade and inspect the work until the same is completed, and it shall be unlawful for work to commence until the grades and alignment have been so checked and an inspector placed upon the location of the work at the time the work is actually commenced. Subsequent to completion of the work, but before acceptance of the completed work by the city, the permittee shall furnish the DPW an acceptable transparent tracing or drawing indicating the “as-built” condition of the work which shall show final grades and other engineering data, all of which shall be certified by the engineer or land surveyor who is registered in the state of Washington who was responsible for the work. The city may refuse to maintain any street which has not been built in compliance herewith nor accepted by the DPW. [Ord. 649 Ch. VII, § 5, 1967.]

16.28.060 Construction of arterial streets.

Construction of arterial streets will be initiated by action of the city council in accordance with the six-year comprehensive street program or upon approval by the voters of special bond improvement projects. [Ord. 649 Ch. VII, § 6, 1967.]
