When the developer has not constructed the improvements by the date specified in the performance agreement, or in a subsequent letter indicating an extension, the developer is in breach of his contract with the Metro Government..
  • Security: A document providing payment to the Metro Government to construct the required public improvements, in the event a developer fails to satisfactorily make the improvements stipulated in the Performance Agreement. Security can be a surety bond, an irrevocable letter of credit, a cashier’s check, a certified check, or assignment of a certificate of deposit.
