§ 153.006  SUITABILITY OF LAND FOR SUBDIVISIONS.
   (A)   Land subject to flooding and land deemed to be topographically unsuitable should not be subdivided for residential purposes, or for such other uses as may increase danger to health, life, or property, or aggravate erosion or flood hazards.
   (B)   The Plan Commission shall not approve a subdivision of land if, upon adequate investigation conducted by the Commission, it has been determined by the Commission that in the best interest of the public the site is not suitable for the subdivision and development of the kind proposed. In making this evaluation, the Plan Commission shall make reference to the applicable portions of the Comprehensive Plan, the Zoning Ordinance, the County Zoning Ordinance, the County Comprehensive Plan, and other general standards of the community. The Plan Commission may further make reference to investigations of soil suitability, or effects on sensitive habitats, threatened or endangered species, or archeological resources, as conducted by the proper authorities.
