   The purpose of this chapter is to support and guide the proper subdivision of land within the jurisdiction of the town in order to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens. The chapter is designed to promote the orderly development of the town; for the coordination of streets and highways within proposed subdivisions with existing or planned streets and highways and other public facilities, for the dedication or reservation of rights-of-way or easements for street and utility purposes; and the distribution of population and traffic, which shall avoid congestion and overcrowding and which will create conditions essential to public health, safety and the general welfare. This chapter is designed to further facilitate adequate provisions for water, sewerage, parks, and playgrounds, and also to facilitate the further resubdivision of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land.
