§ 154.017 PRIMARY PLAT.
   (A)   Filing of primary plat. A primary plat, conforming with the requirements of §§ 154.065 through 154.069 of this chapter, shall be filed in the office of the City Building Inspector, together with the appropriate filing fee. Ten copies of the primary plat shall be filed. The City Building Inspector shall refer the preliminary plan to the Plan Commission.
   (B)   Referral and review. Upon receipt of the complete primary plat, the City Building Inspector shall distribute copies of the primary plat to any agency or person affected by or interested in the proposed subdivision. The agency or person shall make recommendations or comments to the Plan Commission within ten days after receipt. Recommendations shall be in writing and filed in the office of the City Building Inspector, who shall refer them to the Plan Commission at its meeting for consideration of the plan as provided in division (C) below.
   (C)   Public hearing. Upon receipt of the primary plat and recommendations or comments from agencies or persons to whom copies of the primary plat were distributed pursuant to division (B) above, the Plan Commission shall set a date for a public hearing on the primary plat, notifying the applicant-subdivider in writing of the date, time and place. Notice of the meeting shall be published in the manner described in § 154.004 of this chapter. The public hearing may be continued if the Plan Commission, in its discretion, deems it necessary to afford all interested persons an opportunity to be heard or if it is necessary for the Plan Commission to make an informed and reasoned judgment on the primary plat.
   (D)   Plan Commission action. Within 90 days after the filing of a primary plat, unless the time is extended by agreement of the subdivider, the Plan Commission shall approve or disapprove the primary plat. The decision of the Plan Commission shall be recorded in the minutes of the meeting. If the primary plat is disapproved, the reason for the disapproval shall be recorded in the minutes of the meeting in clear and concise terms, together with a clear and concise statement of what, if any, changes to the primary plat will render the plan acceptable. A copy of the Plan Commission minutes, containing the approval of a primary plat shall be referred to the Board of Public Works for its information and to the subdivider, upon written request. If the Plan Commission does not take action within 90 days from the date the primary plat is filed or within the period of any extension, the primary plat shall be deemed approved and the subdivider may proceed in the manner hereinafter provided.
