(a)   Submission. The subdivider shall prepare and submit an application for approval of a preliminary plat. Said application shall be submitted to the Zoning Inspector at least fifteen (15) working days prior to the Planning Commission meeting at which it is to be considered. All applications for preliminary plat approval shall include:
      (1)   A completed application form,
      (2)   Twelve (12) copies of the preliminary plat and supplementary material as required in Section 1109.02;
      (3)   A plat review fee and deposits as established by Village Council; and
      (4)   A letter describing any requested waivers to the standard provisions of these subdivision regulations and the justification therefor.
   No preliminary plat shall be considered officially filed until it is been examined by the Planning Commission and is found to contain all of the required information as set forth in this section and in Section 1109.02.
   (b)   Transmittal and Review. Upon receipt of an application as set forth in subsection (a) hereof, the Zoning Inspector shall transmit copies of the proposed preliminary subdivision plat to the appropriate Village, County, and other officials and agencies and to such planning and engineering consultants as may be determined by the Planning Commission for review and comment.
   (c)   Commission Action. The Commission shall act on the preliminary plan within forty-five (45) days after the plat has been declared officially filed unless such time is extended by agreement with the subdivider or his agent. After receipt of reports from such officials and agencies, the Commission shall determine whether the preliminary plat shall be approved as submitted, approved with modifications, conditionally approved, or disapproved.
   (d)   Notice of Action. Notice of the action taken by the Planning Commission shall be supplied to the subdivider. The action of the Commission shall be noted on two (2) copies of the preliminary plat and the application form and one (1) copy of each returned to the subdivider. One copy of each shall be retained on file by the Zoning Inspector.
   (e)   Effect of Approval. Approval of a preliminary plat by the Commission shall not constitute approval of the final plat of the subdivision by the Commission and does not constitute authorization to record the subdivision. Preliminary plat approval shall be effective for a period of one (1) year from the date of approval unless an extension of time is granted by the Planning Commission. The general terms and conditions under which the preliminary approval was granted will not be affected by any changes and/or amendments to these Regulations during the one (1) year time period following approval. Upon expiration of a preliminary plat approval, no approval of a final plat shall be given until the preliminary plat has been resubmitted and approved.
