18.47.050 Performance assurance.
Prior to the issuance of any building permits for the project, a performance bond shall be submitted to the city in an amount determined by the city to be sufficient to guarantee installation of the required landscaping and fencing and also cover the replacement of any vegetation that dies within the first year. Required landscaping and fencing shall be installed and constructed within three months of the date of final inspection or the issuance of a certificate of occupancy, whichever is later. The bond shall expire at the end of the first 12 months following installation of the landscaping and fencing. If the requirements of this chapter are not met, the city may use the bond to complete the required landscaping or fencing buffer and screening. (Ord. 416 § 1, 2009)
