Section 148-40 CURBS AND GUTTERS.
A. Curbs and gutter shall be required for the purpose of drainage and safety and delineation and protection of the pavement edge. Curbs and gutters and all driveway entrances shall meet the standards and specifications of the Town.
B. Curbs and gutters shall be installed by the applicant along both sides of all new streets. For all subdivisions involving the creation of an additional buildable lot or lots and for all new development projects, curb and gutter sections shall be required along the frontage of all existing public streets. This requirement may be waived on vote of the Town Council in residential areas where the majority of surrounding developed properties do not have curb and gutter, where the character of the area is primarily rural, after consideration of the traffic impact created by the subdivision and the total lots on a given street, drainage considerations and other environmental design parameters.

C. The Town Council, at its discretion, may waive curb and gutter requirements in any residential subdivision where the average lot size exceeds fifteen thousand (15,000) square feet and where the average lot frontage exceeds one hundred (100) feet, provided that adequate drainage conditions are present or met.
D. Curb and gutter improvements which meet the standards and specifications the Town shall be installed for the purpose of drainage and delineation and protection of pavement edges adjacent to any existing lot or parcel for which a building permit is obtained and upon which new construction occurs and shall be completed prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy for such new construction. This requirement may be waived on vote of the Town Council in residential areas, where the character of the area is primarily rural, for drainage considerations and other environmental design parameters, provided that adequate drainage conditions are present or met.
