18.50.100. Conversion to public streets and utilities

            Except as provided in this Section, no streets or utilities within a private subdivision/development may be converted into public ownership unless approved by the City Council, after a public hearing, and the Council finds that:

            (1)        They meet all standards for materials and construction as set forth in the current Layton City technical standards both at the time of construction and at the time of making application to the City to convert them to public ownership.  Nothing in this Subsection shall be construed to prohibit a property owner from bringing an improvement to current standard to satisfy this requirement; and

            (2)        It can be demonstrated that the improvements have been properly inspected  and maintained since their construction, to the time of application; and

            (3)        The conversion of a private street or utility to a public street or utility is necessary to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizenry; and

            (4)        That the conversion of a street or utility to a public street or utility is necessary:

                        (a)        For the coordinated connectivity of streets or utilities consistent with the City's General Plan; or

                        (b)        To ensure or preserve access to a public facility, a City owned facility, or other public property; or

                        (c)        To provide for an identifiable, objective need the City has, that will be satisfied by taking ownership of a street or utility.
