§ 153.004  SUBDIVISION CONTROL.
   (A)   For the purpose of the present and future development of the village and for the promotion of public health and safety, morals, comfort, and welfare of persons living within the territory governed, the provisions and regulations hereinafter contained which shall govern the subdivision and platting of land lying within the corporate limits of the village as now or hereafter existing, or within the area of jurisdiction of the village as now or hereafter established under the provision of the state statutes, are hereby adopted as part of the Official Plan of the village.
   (B)   These regulations are further for the purpose of controlling the future development of the village and for the promotion of the public health and safety, comfort, morals, and welfare of persons living within the territory governed by the village. The provisions and regulations in this chapter shall govern the subdivision and platting of lands and civil engineering improvements within planned unit developments and condominiums lying within the corporate limits of the village as now or hereafter existing and, to the extent that such provisions and regulations may be applicable, shall also govern the subdivision and platting of lands, and the civil engineering improvements within planned unit developments, condominiums, or subdivision lying within contiguous territory which is not more than one and one-half miles beyond the corporate limits of the village.
   (C)   There are three types of requirements on which subdivision approval is conditioned.
      (1)   First, a prohibition against any subdivision activity in areas where street access, soil, subsoil, or flooding conditions would create dangers to health and safety if development were allowed.
      (2)   Second, the proposed subdivision should be consistent with the Comprehensive Plan for the village. This includes requirements for reservation of space within the subdivision for planned parks, schools, public roads, and other improvements.
      (3)   Third, the subdivision should be designed in a manner that avoids overburdening area facilities which often are located outside the subdivision itself.
