§ 154.22  TIME LIMITS FOR PLAT APPROVAL.
   (A)   (1)   Unless extended, primary plat approval shall be effective for a period of two years (primary plat approval period) after the date of primary plat approval or conditional approval, at the end of which time secondary approval of the subdivision, or the first section of a sectionalized subdivision, must have been obtained by the applicant and certified by the proper officials. Any plats not receiving secondary approval within the period of time set forth herein shall be null and void, and the applicant shall be required to resubmit a new application for subdivision approval subject to the zoning restrictions and subdivision regulations in effect at the time of resubmission.
      (2)   Upon the request of an applicant and upon a finding that the applicant has been unable to prepare the proposed development for secondary approval despite due diligence, the Plan Commission may extend the primary approval period for 1 two-year period beyond the expiration date of the original primary approval period, without further notice and public hearing, or for a longer period of time upon notice to interested parties and hearing.
   (B)   (1)   Until the secondary plat is recorded, secondary approval shall be effective for a period of one year (secondary approval period) after the date of secondary approval, at the end of which time the secondary plat shall have been recorded. Any plats not recorded within the period of time set forth herein shall be required to resubmit a new application for subdivision approval subject to the zoning restrictions and subdivision regulations in effect at the time of resubmission.
      (2)   Upon the request of an applicant and upon a finding that the applicant has been unable to satisfy the requirements to execute the certificate of secondary approval despite due diligence, the Plan Commission may extend the secondary approval period for one year beyond the expiration date of the original secondary approval period, without further notice and public hearing, or for a longer period of time upon notice to interested parties and hearing.
   (C)   For sectionalized subdivisions, the approval of all remaining sections not filed with the Plan Commission staff shall automatically expire two years from the date of recordation of the secondary plat for the latest section of the subdivision, unless the primary approval has been extended by the Plan Commission.
