Following the conditional approval by the Planning Commission of a preliminary plat, and subject to the provisions of these Regulations, the developer shall prepare for record purposes, and for dedication of public streets and other public places, a final plat of the proposed subdivision, as set forth in this section.
(a) Submittal of Data. A written application for approval of the final plat of a subdivision, together with fourteen copies of the final plat, improvement plans, supplementary material and other exhibits required for approval as specified below, shall be submitted to the Planning Commission at least ten days prior to the date of the meeting at which it is to be considered.
(b) Contents Generally. The final plat of a subdivision shall contain all requirements stipulated in the preliminary plat as conditionally approved, and, if desired by the developer, may constitute only that portion of the preliminary plat which he or she proposes to record and develop at the time, provided, however, that such portion conforms to all the requirements of these Regulations.
(c) Specific Contents. Final plats, "As-Built" plans, and data prepared for final approval and recording shall include:
(1) The final plat drawn in ink on mylar on sheets twenty-four inches wide by thirty-six inches long at a scale of 100 feet to one inch. Where necessary, the plat may be on several sheets accompanied by an index sheet showing the entire subdivision at an appropriate scale. For large subdivisions the final plat may be submitted for approval progressively in contiguous sections satisfactory to the Planning Commission and the City Engineer. The final plat shall show the following:
A. Primary control points, approved by the City Engineer, or descriptions and "ties" to such control points, to which all dimensions, angles, bearings and similar data on the plat shall be referred;
B. Tract boundary lines, right-of-way lines of streets, easements and other rights of way, and property lines of residential lots and other sites, with accurate dimensions, bearings or deflection angles, and radii, arcs and central angles of all curves;
C. Names and right-of-way width of each street or other right of way;
D. The location of the termini of existing and proposed streets on adjoining property with such dimensions as are necessary to show their relation to streets being dedicated in the proposed subdivision;

P. Final approval paragraph for execution by the Planning Commission, with dates and the signature of the Chairperson and Secretary, and a paragraph for acceptance by Council, with the ordinance or resolution number, the date and the signature of the Council President and Clerk. Unless all of the improvements herein required in these Regulations have been installed, the clause reciting the approval of Council shall state clearly that the plat for record is approved by Council for record purposes only and that such approval does not constitute the acceptance for public use of any streets or other lands which the plat indicates shall be dedicated to such use.
