(A) This chapter governs plats and subdivision of lands subject to its provisions.
(B) The City Council may, by resolution, cause this chapter to apply to a specified portion of the unincorporated area lying within two miles of the city borders, as provided for by M.S. § 462.358, as it may be amended from time to time.
(C) (1) Any unplatted property shall be platted in accordance with the provisions and standards of this chapter before it is developed. For the purposes of this chapter, the term DEVELOPED is defined as any construction activity requiring the installation of public improvements.
(2) No expansion or addition to a structure that changes the use, or is intended to change the use of a property, shall be allowed.
(D) Except in the case of resubdivision, this chapter shall not apply to any lot or lots forcing a part of a subdivision recorded in the Office of the Waseca County Recorder prior to the effective date of this chapter, nor is it intended by this chapter to repeal, annul or in any way impair or interfere with existing provisions of other laws or ordinances except those specifically repealed by, or in conflict with this chapter.
(E) (1) Where this chapter imposes a greater restriction upon the land than is imposed or required by the existing laws or ordinances, the provisions of this chapter shall control.

(2) Where there are differing requirements of the same zoning control, the more restrictive requirement shall apply.
