This approval must be in writing and placed on the original tracing of the final plans.
   (b)   No lot, tract or parcel of land within any such subdivision shall be offered for sale, nor shall any sale, contract for sale or option be made or given, until such subdivision plans have been properly reviewed by the Plan Commission and officially approved by Council.
   (c)   No improvements, such as sidewalks, water supply, storm water drainage, sewerage facilities, gas service, electric service or lighting, or grading, paving or surfacing of streets, shall hereafter be made within any such subdivision by any owner or his or her agent, or by any public service corporation at the request of such owner or his or her agent, until the plans for the subdivision and for improvements thereto have been formally reviewed by the Plan Commission and approved by Council.
   (d)   Subdivision of land lying outside of the Village and within one and one half miles of the Village limits shall also be required to conform with the requirements of these Subdivision Regulations, in accordance with the provisions of the Illinois Municipal Code.
   (e)   All interpretations of these Regulations are reserved to the administrative bodies referred to herein.
   (f)   Whenever a parcel is divided into lots containing two or more acres, inclusive, and there are indications that such lots will eventually be resubdivided into smaller building lots, consideration shall be given to the street and lot arrangements of the original subdivision so that additional minor streets can be opened which will permit a logical arrangement of smaller lots.
