15.52.170 Hard surfaces, walkways and driveways. A. Hard surfaces, parking lots, walkways and driveways on private property shall not be allowed to deteriorate to the extent they constitute a safety hazard. For the purposes of this section, the term "safety hazard" shall include but not be limited to a paved surface which is broken, buckled, heaved, collapsed or missing to the degree that vehicles using the surface are at risk of being damaged or pedestrians walking on the surface are at risk of falling or tripping. There shall be a rebuttable presumption of a violation of this section if there have been actual incidents of personal injury or property damage as a result of deterioration of any hard surfaces, walkways and driveways as described above.
B. Existing gravel driveways and parking areas shall be provided with a border or edging which clearly defines the limits of the gravel driveway or parking area. This border or edging shall be approved by the public officer, and shall be maintained as long as the gravel driveway or parking area exists. Gravel driveways and parking areas shall be maintained so that no vegetation exists in the area between approved borders or edging. Provided, however, that gravel driveways and parking areas on agriculturally zoned property shall be exempt from the requirements for borders, edging and maintenance. (Ord. 2379 1(part), 1998)
