§ 153.370  AUTHORITY, PURPOSE AND CONFLICT WITH OTHER LAWS.
   (A)   Subdivision provisions enacted herein are under the authority of G.S. § 160D-804.
(Prior UDO, § 1)
   (B)   Purpose.  The purpose of the chapter’s subdivision regulations is to establish procedures and standards for the development and subdivision of land within the planning jurisdiction area of the city. It is further designed to provide for the orderly growth and development of the city and its planning jurisdiction; for the coordination of streets and highways within proposed subdivisions with existing or planned streets and highways and with other public facilities; for the dedication or reservation of rights-of-way or easements for street and utility purposes; and for the distribution of population and traffic in a manner that will avoid congestion and overcrowding and will create conditions essential to the public’s health, safety and general welfare. This chapter is designed to further facilitate adequate provision of water, sewerage, parks, schools, and playgrounds, and also to facilitate the further re-subdivision of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land.
(Prior UDO, § 3.2)
   (C)   Conflict with other laws.  This chapter is in part carried forward by re-enactment of some of the provisions of the subdivision ordinance of the city (adopted by the City Council on January 10, 1991, as amended) and it is not the intention to repeal but rather to re-enact and continue in force the existing provisions so that all rights and liabilities that have accrued thereunder are preserved and may be enforced. All provisions of the subdivision ordinance of the city enacted in January 10, 1991, as amended, which are not re-enacted herein are hereby repealed. All suits at law or in equity and/or all prosecutions resulting from the violation of any subdivision ordinance heretofore in effect, which are now pending in any of the courts of this state or of the United States, shall not be abated or abandoned by reason of the adoption of this chapter but shall be prosecuted to their finality, the same as if this chapter had not been adopted, and any and all violations of the existing subdivision ordinance, prosecutions for which have not yet been initiated, may be hereafter filed and prosecuted. Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as to abandon, abate or dismiss any litigation or prosecution now pending, and/or which may heretofore have been instituted or prosecuted.
