(A)   General.  Where land to be subdivided is found by the Planning Board to be subject to the conditions of flooding, improper drainage, severe erosion, and slides, or to have other characteristics that pose an ascertainable danger to health, safety or property, the subdivider shall take measures necessary to correct the conditions and to eliminate the dangers. Due consideration shall be given to preserving natural features, such as trees, ponds, streams, rivers, lakes, and for any historical sites that are of value not only to the subdivision but to the village as well.
   (B)   Geotechniical study requirement and review.  The subdivider of all parcels of land 10 acres or greater in size shall present a geotechnical study of the property, prepared by a professional geotechnical engineer and a professional geologist, that addresses the concerns noted above. The study shall be submitted to the village for review a minimum of 30 days prior to a request for any action by the village. The village may require that such study be reviewed by the village's outside consultant. In such event, the subdivider shall deposit with the village as a deposit an amount of funds estimated by the outside consultant as the cost of outside review, plus 10% as administrative costs. Upon receipt of the funds, the village will commence the outside review.
