A.   Purpose:
      1.   The purpose of these regulations is to set forth rules, regulations and standards to guide the subdivision of land in order to promote the public health, safety, convenience and general welfare within the jurisdiction of the village. Regulations should be administered to ensure orderly growth and development, the conservation, protection and proper use of land and adequate provisions for traffic circulation, utilities and services.
      2.   An additional purpose of these regulations is to set forth, so far as applicable, rules, regulations and standards to guide the development of parcels of land for which a development plan has been approved under title 13, chapter 10, article C of the zoning regulations of the village.
   B.   Scope And Jurisdiction: Because each new subdivision accepted by the village becomes a permanent unit in the basic physical structure of the future community, and to which the future community will, of necessity, be forced to adhere, all subdivisions hereafter planned within the incorporated limits of the village, and within the area of planning jurisdiction as established by statute up to one and one-half (11/2) miles beyond, shall, in all respects, be in full compliance with these regulations. These regulations are designed to provide for the orderly and harmonious development of the village, for the coordination of streets within new subdivisions with other existing or planned streets, to secure a uniform system of utilities and services and to otherwise promote realization of the official plan.
