(a) Each vehicular gate to the gated community or multi-unit housing project must
have a lockbox within sight of the gate and in close proximity outside the gate. The lockbox at all times must contain a key, card, or code to open the gate or a
key switch or cable mechanism that overrides the key, card, or code that normally
opens the gate and allows the gate to be opened manually.
(b) If there are one or more pedestrian gates, at least one pedestrian gate must have
a lockbox within sight of the gate and in close proximity outside the gate. The lockbox at all times must contain a key, card, code, key switch, or cable mechanism
to open the gate.
(c) If different pedestrian gates are operated by different keys, cards, or codes,
the lockbox must contain:
(1) each key, card, or code, properly labeled for its respective gate; or
(2) a single master key, card, or code or a key switch or cable mechanism that will
open every gate.
(d) Access to a lockbox required by this section shall be limited to a person or agency
providing fire-fighting or emergency medical services or law enforcement for the county.
(e) If a gate is powered by electricity, it must be possible to open the gate without
a key, card, code, or key switch if the gate loses electrical power.
