The preliminary plat shall be prepared by a professional engineer and a professional land surveyor and the preliminary plat is to be approved by the Plan Commission and Board of Trustees before any subdivision development is started. The following items and information shall be shown on the preliminary plat; all mapped data shall be presented at a scale of one inch to 100 feet or larger, on sheets not larger than 30 inches by 42 inches, with lettering not smaller than one-twelfth of an inch, so that the plat is clearly legible without magnification.
   (A)   General information.
      (1)   The proposed name of subdivision; the land owner’s, engineer’s, and surveyor’s names and addresses; and
      (2)   The location of the subdivision by township, range, and section for reference; section or quarter section corners shall be indicated.
   (B)   Existing conditions.
      (1)   The locations, width, and names of all existing public and/or private streets, railroads, or other public ways and utility rights-of-way within and/or adjacent to the tract to within 200 feet of the boundary of the tract;
      (2)   The locations and size of all existing sanitary sewerage, water mains, and appurtenances, storm drainage, known field drainage tile, or other known underground facilities within the tract or near the tract, and any such known facilities entering or exiting the tract;
      (3)   The topography, spot elevations at critical points, and contour intervals of not greater than two feet, regardless of grade, related to National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 (Mean Sea Level) on the site, within 100 feet of the boundaries of the site, and for additional distance beyond if necessary to adequately depict drainage conditions;
      (4)   The location and identification of all public and quasi-public areas and civil division lines within and/or adjacent to the tract, to within 200 feet of the boundary of the tract;
      (5)   The location and identification of all recorded subdivisions lying adjacent to or across a public right-of-way from the tract;
      (6)   The acreage and identification of the drainage basin or basins that lie upstream from the tract of land that is proposed for subdivision;
      (7)   The location and identification of all existing human-made features such as buildings, high-tension towers, public water and sewer lines, pipe lines, excavations, bridges, railroad tracks, culverts, and related items within and/or adjacent to the tract, to within 100 feet of the boundary of the tract proposed to be subdivided. The preliminary plat shall note the location of the nearest public sewer and public water lines;
      (8)   The location of existing streams, rivers, drains, lakes, ponds, and impoundments within and/or within 100 feet of the tract;
      (9)   The land use and existing zoning of the proposed subdivision and adjacent tracts;

   (C)   Proposed conditions.
      (1)   Arterial streets (80-foot right-of-way) are required on approximately mile section lines and collector (70-foot right-of-way) are required on approximately one-half mile section lines.

Test data to support this statement shall also be submitted; and
      (10)   The developer shall mail, no later than 21 days prior to the Plan Commission meeting, one print of the preliminary plat to the following in divisions (C)(10)(a) through (C)(10)(m) and one print to any other public or quasi-public utility affected by the subdivision. The prints must be accompanied by a request that written comments be submitted to the village at the Plan Commission meeting held thereafter, unless otherwise required by ordinance or law, and that no comment in the time specified shall be deemed no adverse comment.
