ADJUSTMENT TO EXISTING UTILITIES AND COST THEREOF
The DEVELOPER shall, at its sole expense, provide for adjustments necessary to all existing utilities because of the work required by this agreement. 

FULL COMPLIANCE WITH COUNTY REQUIREMENTS
The DEVELOPER shall perform and complete all off-site improvements in accordance with the regulations, specifications, and ordinances of the said County of Clark, and the construction plans approved by Clark County Public Works Department. The DEVELOPER shall obtain all required permits from other County, State, and Federal agencies, including but not limited to the Southern Nevada Health District, Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, and United States Army Corps of Engineers. 

The COUNTY shall have the right to require corrections to the construction plans by the DEVELOPER at any time before release of the bond (performance bond, cash deposit, or agreement in lieu of bond) required herein, of any item or items contained in this agreement which do not conform to COUNTY standard specifications, laws, regulations or ordinances, even though the plans for the item in question may have been approved by the Director of Public Works.

The DEVELOPER shall start said off-site improvements upon receipt of a COUNTY-approved off-site permit and said off-site improvements shall be completed prior to expiration of said permit in accordance with the required ordinances.

In the event the DEVELOPER fails to complete said improvements within said period or in the event the DEVELOPER in the COUNTY's opinion has created a safety hazard, the COUNTY, at its option, may proceed to complete said improvements at the expense of the DEVELOPER. The COUNTY may use the required performance bond as provided for hereinafter.

OTHER CONDITIONS AND REQUIREMENTS
The DEVELOPER further agrees that, in addition to the above requirements, any and/or all such conditions, stipulations and agreements made by the DEVELOPER and the Board of County Commissioners and/or County Planning Commission of Clark County shall be fully performed. The

DEVELOPER further agrees that all work is to be performed by a qualified contractor licensed to do business in the State of Nevada and the County of Clark.

The DEVELOPER shall maintain, protect and take care of all work areas for the project, including any adjacent existing improvements, until its completion and acceptance by Clark County. Maintenance of any inhabited area of the development, and the adjacent streets and/or neighborhoods, shall include, but not be limited to, sweeping of the streets and keeping the gutters free of dirt and debris.

During move-in, construction and move-off, the DEVELOPER shall keep the site free and clear from dangerous accumulation of rubbish and debris and shall maintain sufficient and proper barricades, lights, etc., in accordance with the latest manual on the placement of traffic control devices accepted by the Department of Public Works for the protection of the public. Also, after excavation or placement of gravel, if the sub-grade and/or gravel base material is left exposed and in the opinion of the Director of Public Works is not properly maintained, thus causing either a rough riding surface or a dust problem, the Director of Public Works may require the DEVELOPER to do whatever is necessary to provide an adequate travel-way. If a detour is needed, the Director of Public Works shall determine to what extent it shall be maintained, which shall include the placing of temporary paving, if it is to be used for an extended period of time. 4 Final acceptance of the work will not be made by the COUNTY until the area (falling under this agreement) and adjacent property has been cleared of all rubbish, surplus materials and equipment resulting from the contractor's operations, to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works.

LIABILITY
The DEVELOPER shall indemnify and hold harmless the COUNTY, its officers, agents and employees, against and from any and all liability, loss, damage, claims, demands, costs and expenses of whatsoever nature, including court costs and attorney's fees, which result from injury to or death of any persons whomsoever, or against and from damage to or loss or destruction of property whatsoever when such injury death, loss, destruction or damage is due to or arises in connection with or as a result of any work done by the DEVELOPER in connection with the construction of the off-site improvements.

PLAN REQUIREMENTS ON COMPLETION OF IMPROVEMENTS
Upon completion of all the off-site improvements within the COUNTY right-of-way required hereby and prior to release of any performance security, the DEVELOPER shall furnish the Director of Public Works with an as-built plan which shall accurately indicate, by lettered dimensions, the location of all manholes, the location size and depth of all sewer mains, underground water, power, gas, and other lines, with street plans and profiles for the same, including laterals and "Y's" for connection of house service lines.

Furthermore, DEVELOPER, at all times, is not relieved of any obligation or responsibility it may have by law including but not limited to damages for latent deficiencies, injury to real or personal property or injury to or wrongful death of a person, (N.R.S. 11.204).

CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY
No certificates of occupancy shall be granted until such time as the off-site improvements have been completed to the satisfaction of the Director of Public Works, and in accordance with this agreement. The granting of a certificate of occupancy does not relieve DEVELOPER of its obligations in this agreement.
