Before preparing a proposed plat for an area, the owner, developer his, her or their representatives should have a pre-application meeting with the Planning and Zoning Commission and/or the Village Planner to determine applicable ordinance regulations and standards which must be complied with. After the pre-application meeting(s), the subdivider should then prepare the preliminary plat. As defined in the subdivision code, the preliminary plat must contain a substantial amount of data, and will thus be incomplete and cannot be considered as filed until all required data are submitted. The preliminary plat is received with filing fees by the Village Clerk’s office, who, in turn, will forward the same to the Planning and Zoning Commission for its review. Following its review (as well as comments from other appropriate agencies when required), the Planning and Zoning Commission forwards its recommendation(s) to the Village Board, who then either approve, disapprove or approve with modifications the preliminary plat.
