While it is obvious that regulations are needed to assure orderly extension of Village streets, the purpose of these regulations are:
A. To protect and provide for the public health, safety, comfort, convenience and general welfare of the residents of the Village.
B. To ensure sound, harmonious subdivision development and community growth, and to safeguard the interests of the homeowner, the subdivider, the investor and the Village.
C. To provide permanent assets to the locality and to the Village.
D. To prevent scattered development beyond any public utilities and excessive development costs, and to assure reasonable maintenance costs for the Village and/or other responsible parties.
E. To assure the development of land for optimum use with necessary protection against deterioration and obsolescence.
F. To limit and control the pollution of the environment that can be caused by inadequate or incomplete urban development.
G. To provide common grounds of understanding and a sound working relationship between the Village and the subdivider.
H. To lessen congestion in the streets and highways.
I. To provide for adequate light and air.
J. To facilitate adequate provision for transportation, water, sewerage, schools and other public necessities.
K. To ensure proper legal description and proper monumenting of subdivided land.
The regulations are established with reasonable consideration of the character of the Village with a view toward conserving the value of buildings upon the land and providing the best possible environment for human habitation. It is intended that these regulations shall supplement and facilitate the enforcement of the provisions and development standards contained in the building code, Zoning Map, Zoning Ordinance, and the Official Village Comprehensive Plan.
