Subdivisions should be planned to take advantage of the topography of the land, to economize in the construction of drainage facilities, to reduce the amount of grading, to minimize destruction of trees and topsoil, and to preserve scenic natural features. If any portion of the land within the subdivision is subject to flooding or other hazards, due consideration shall be given to such problems in the design of the subdivision. Land subject to flooding and land otherwise uninhabitable shall not be platted for residential occupancy nor for such other uses that may increase danger to health, life, or that may aggravate the flood hazard.
