1.2A REQUIRED CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS
If a developer demolishes a single family home and rebuilds a single family home using the existing water service, the WWU will not request any infrastructure improvements.
If a developer demolishes a single family home and constructs a duplex using the existing single service and sells the duplex as a condominium, then the WWU will not request any infrastructure improvements.
If a developer demolishes a duplex and constructs a new duplex where there is one (1) existing service, then that duplex will be required to be condominium ownership and will receive the one (I) existing water service. If the developer demolishes a duplex which has two (2) services, then the developer may construct a duplex utilizing the two (2) existing services and sell those units as fee simple units. Under the above situation, the developer of the duplexes will not be required to provide infrastructure improvements.
All other development including single family homes and duplexes where no service is available or where additional service is required for either fire protection or for additional individual units will be subject to the WWU's requirements for infrastructure improvements. These infrastructure improvements will be based on the new units having adequate fire service in accordance with the Insurance Services Offices ("ISO") recommendation and these units will also be required to have their water services connected on the street in which they front.
