§ 153.038  STREET LAYOUTS.
   (A)   Circulation. The street pattern shall provide ease of circulation within the subdivision as well as convenient access to adjoining streets, thoroughfares, or unsubdivided lands as may be required by the Plan Commission. Minor residential streets should be so planned as to discourage their use by nonlocal traffic.
   (B)   Consistent with adjoining street layout. The arrangement of streets shall make provision for the continuation of the principal existing or proposed streets in adjoining areas, or their proper projection where adjoining land is not subdivided, insofar as they are necessary for public requirements.
   (C)   Not to cause hardship to adjoining owners. The street layout shall be such as not to cause hardship to owners of adjoining property when they plat their own land and seek to provide for convenient access to it. The Plan Commission may require land to be reserved for future street purposes to be developed by an adjacent land owner at a later date.
   (D)   Streets extended to subdivision boundary lines. Proposed streets shall be extended to the boundary lines of the tract to be subdivided, unless prevented by topography or other physical conditions or unless, in the opinion of the Plan Commission, such extension is not necessary or desirable for the coordination of the layout of the subdivision with the existing layout of the subdivision or the most suitable layout of adjacent tracts.
   (E)   Intersections. Proposed streets shall intersect one another as nearly at right angles as topography and other limiting factors of good design permit.
   (F)   Street jogs.  Street jogs with centerline offsets at intersections shall not be allowed unless the distance between the centerline offsets is at least 200 feet on local and collector streets, 300 feet on secondary thoroughfares, and 500 feet on primary thoroughfares.
   (G)   Cul-de-sacs. Cul-de-sacs may be approved where necessitated by topography or where, in the opinion of the Plan Commission, they are appropriate for the type of development contemplated. Turnaround of the circular type shall be required. Except in unusual circumstances, the Plan Commission shall not approve a cul-de-sac with a length greater than 700 feet, and in no case shall the length be greater than 800 feet from the nearest intersecting street.
   (H)   Temporary dead end streets. Except as otherwise provided herein, temporary dead end streets may be approved where necessitated by the layout of the subdivision or staging of development; provided that temporary paved turnarounds shall be constructed at the end of such streets in cases where more than eight lots front on the street. The width of right-of-way or temporary easement shall be the same as that required for permanent turnarounds. The extra right-of-way in excess of the street right-of-way shall be vacated upon extension of the temporary street, and the reconditioning of the street, all surface improvements, and front yards concerned shall be carried out at the expense of the subdivider responsible for the extension of the temporary dead end street.
   (I)   Half-streets. Dedication of half-streets shall not be permitted except in special situations which are in the public interest. Where there exists a dedicated or platted half-street adjacent to the tract being subdivided, the other half shall be platted if, in the opinion of the Plan Commission, it is necessary to promote proper development.
   (J)   Private streets. Except in unusual conditions when held desirable by the Plan Commission or in cases permitted in accordance with the provisions of the Zoning Code, private streets will not be approved.
