§ 153.03 SCOPE OF LEGAL AUTHORITY.
   (A)   This chapter is not intended to repeal, annul, or in any way impair or interfere with existing provisions of other laws, ordinances or with restrictive covenants running with the land except those specifically repealed by or in conflict with this chapter. Every division of land for the purpose of lease or sale into 2 or more lots, parcels or tracts within the incorporated area of the City of Jordan or any combination of 2 or more lots shall proceed in compliance with this chapter. It is the purpose of this chapter to make certain regulations and requirements for the platting of land within the city pursuant to the authority contained in M.S. Chapters 412, 429, 471, and 505, which regulations the City Council deems necessary for the health, safety, general welfare, convenience and good order of this community.
   (B)   The city shall have the power and authority to review and approve amendments to subdivisions of land already recorded and on file with Scott County.
   (C)   The City of Jordan has adopted a comprehensive plan for the future physical development and improvement of the city pursuant to M.S. §§ 462.351–432.3535, and finds it necessary to regulate the division of land for future development and use. The city finds that the public health, safety and general welfare require that the division of land into 2 or more parcels requires regulation to assure adequate space, light and air; to provide proper ingress and egress to property; to facilitate adequate provision for water, waste disposal, fire protection, open space, schools, public uses and adequate streets and highways; and to assure uniform monumenting, legal description and conveyance of subdivided land. The Minnesota Statutes authorize municipalities to so regulate the subdivision and platting of land pursuant to M.S. §§ 412.221, Subd. 32, and 462.358.
