(1) All highways and public roads or portions thereof and parcels of land shown on the final plat intended for any public use shall be deeded or offered for dedication for public use except where the provisions of this chapter provide otherwise.

(2) Public roads, or portions thereof, may be reserved by the county for future dedication where the immediate opening and improvement is not required, but where it is necessary to ensure that the county can later accept dedication when the public roads become needed due to traffic impacts of the subdivision, together with expected impacts of reasonably foreseeable future development of the areas or adjacent areas.

(3) Easements shall be dedicated and indicated on the face of the final plat in a form acceptable to the department. Easements for the purpose of serving the subdivision and other property with utility services and granting the right to enter upon the lots, tracts, and common areas at all times to install, lay, construct, renew, operate, and maintain underground conduit, cables, pipe, and wires with necessary facilities and other equipment shall be reserved for and granted to all utilities and to their respective successors and assigns, under and upon the exterior 10 feet parallel with and adjoining the street frontage of all lots, tracts, and common areas. Easements required per chapter 30.63A SCC for low impact development best management practices and stormwater management facilities, and easements for other purposes required by Snohomish County Code, shall be dedicated as appropriate. The department shall establish standard language for the establishment of such easements and shall make the standard language available with the submittal requirements checklists for final subdivision approval.
