(A) (1) Procedure for resubdivision or replat.
(2) For any change in a map of an approved or recorded subdivision plat, if such change affects any street layout shown on such map, or area reserved thereon for public use, or any lot line, or if it affects any map or plan legally reached prior to the adoption of any regulations controlling subdivisions, such parcel shall be approved by the Plan Commission as for a new subdivision, unless such change is defined as an exempt subdivision by this chapter.
(B) Procedure for subdivisions where future resubdivision is indicated.
(1) Whenever a parcel of land is subdivided and the subdivision plat shows one or more lots containing more than one acre of land and there are indications that such lots will eventually be resubdivided into smaller lots, the Plan Commission may require that such parcel of land allow for the future opening of streets and the ultimate extension of adjacent streets.
(2) Easements providing for the future opening and extension of such streets may be made a requirement of the plat.
(C) Vacation of plats.
(1) Any recorded plat or any part of a recorded plat may be vacated by the owner(s) of the premises at any time before the sale of any lot therein, by a written instrument, to which a copy of such plat shall be attached, declaring the same to be vacated. Such an instrument shall be approved by the Plan Commission in like manner as any subdivision plat.
(2) The town may reject any such instrument which abridges or destroys any public rights in any of its public uses, improvements, streets, or alleys.
(3) Such an instrument shall be executed, acknowledged, or approved, and recorded or filed, in like manner as a deed to land and, being duly recorded or filed, shall operate to terminate the effect of the plat so vacated, and to terminate all public rights in the public ways and public grounds, and all dedications laid out or described in the plat or part of the plat.
