The governing body of the city may regulate subdivisions and land development within the municipality by enacting a subdivision and land development ordinance.
(A) The ordinance may require that all plats of land lying within the municipality shall be submitted for approval to the governing body or in lieu thereof to a planning agency designated in the ordinance for this purpose. All powers granted herein to the governing body or the planning agency shall be exercised in accordance with the provisions of the subdivision and land development ordinance.
