(A)   If the city council finds that because of unique conditions or because it is unlikely that the property to be subdivided will be annexed to the city of Clinton within five (5) years or the suitability of public utilities will not be available to the property within five (5) years, the city council may authorize variation from the provisions of these regulations and allow the subdivision to fall under county jurisdiction for development.
   (B)   In any instance where the city has granted approval of a preliminary plat of subdivision design or subdivision improvements as shown on said preliminary plat are less restrictive than the requirements of this title, the subdivider may apply in writing to the city council for permission to proceed with subdivision as originally planned. The city council, upon review of the preliminary plat as originally submitted, may then grant such permission. (Ord. 869, 11-5-2001)
