A performance bond consists of two parts: a performance agreement and a security document. A bond application must be submitted in order to establish, reduce, extend, replace, or release your bond.

  • Bond Application: A developer must submit a bond application and a $400 fee to the Metro Planning Department every time the developer requests a new bond, or requests to extend, reduce, replace, or release an existing bond.
  • Performance Agreement: A contract between the developer and the Metro Government stipulating the public improvements to be completed, the estimated cost of the proposed public improvements, and the completion date for all work to be performed by the developer. 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..

Chapter 6 of the Subdivision Regulations provides specific details on the various types of bonds.
