WHEREAS, roads, streets, sidewalks and water, sewer and storm water infrastructure shown on the final plat approved by the metropolitan planning commission indicates offers to dedicate for public use that can be accepted by action of the metropolitan council; and,
WHEREAS, an application has been filed with the planning department that states the reasons why the incomplete infrastructure presents a public health or safety concern in its present condition, specifically identifies the infrastructure that must be completed in order to abate the health or safety concern, and states what characteristics make it unlikely that the infrastructure will be completed within a reasonable time by any private entity; and,
