[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Flower Hill 1-6-1976 as Ch. A93 of the 1976 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The authority to approve plats in the Village of Flower Hill has been vested by the Board of Trustees in the Planning Board.
An application for the approval of a plat shall be made by filing with the Planning Board a petition and the plat proposed for approval, together with any other map or maps of the property within or adjoining the property within the plat, as may be required by the Planning Board.
The petition must be executed by the owner or owners of the fee of the property and shall have annexed to it a schedule of specifications showing:
Type of pavement and curb or gutter to be laid on the streets shown on the plat. (The Village Clerk or Village Clerk-Treasurer shall be consulted for the specifications which will be required.)
Specifications of materials to be used and methods to be adopted in the construction of the pavement and curbs or gutters, including drains and underground pipes. (The Village Clerk or Village Clerk-Treasurer should be consulted for the specifications which will be required.)
The grades of the streets showing the courses and disposition of surface waters and the location of drains. (This may be shown on a contour map or on the plat.)
Plantings to be made on shoulders of streets and in parks.
The plat must show by a diagram or notes thereon:
The location of all streets within the property by metes and bounds with relation to other streets or boundary lines of the property.
The grades of the proposed streets showing the course and disposition of surface waters and drains. (This may be shown by an accompanying map.)
The location of sufficient monuments to adequately define the course of the streets.
Location of lines of the utilities existing and as proposed. Electric and telephone pole lines shall be along the rear lot lines insofar as feasible.
The location and size of any park and the manner in which it is to be improved.
The application must be accompanied by an offer to dedicate to the village all streets within the platted property over which it is intended the public shall have a right-of-way. The offer of dedication must be executed by the owner of the fee and directed to the Board of Trustees. The offer of dedication shall obligate the owner of the fee to furnish, at the time of dedication, a title policy covering the bed of the streets in favor of the village.
A performance bond in an amount to be determined by the Planning Board shall be required to ensure completion of all required street and drainage improvements within two years.
When the improvements covered by the performance bond and the Planning Board resolution have been completed and certified as satisfactory by the Village Engineer, the contractor or developer shall post a maintenance bond in an amount not less than 10% of the amount of the performance bond, to secure the proper maintenance and repair of said improvements for an additional year. This shall be done as a condition precedent to the release of the original performance bond.
An inspection fee shall be paid to the village in accordance with Chapter A243, Fees, Charges and Deposits, of the Code of the Village of Flower Hill.
All underground utilities and drains must be installed prior to final paving of streets.
The applicant shall file with the Planning Board either the written consents of the owners of all properties situate within 300 feet of the applicant's property line or, in lieu thereof, written proof that notice has been sent to each such property owner by registered or certified mail, which notice shall include the date of the public hearing on the application, the identification of the subject property and a statement of the subdivision requested. The failure to provide such notice shall be sufficient grounds to adjourn the public hearing, and the additional costs incurred thereby shall be chargeable to the applicant, to be paid prior to the conduct of the adjourned date of the public hearing.
[Added 12-7-1992 by L.L. No. 14-1992; amended 11-10-1999 by L.L. No. 3-1999]
The plat must be drawn to the scale of 40 feet to one inch, 80 feet to one inch, or 100 feet to one inch and clearly define the property which is the subject of the petition. Two black and white paper prints of the plat and the profile shall be submitted with the petition. Two black and white cloth prints of the plat with all signatures, being exact prints of the map filed with the County Clerk and bearing the filed date and number, shall be presented to the Village Clerk or Village Clerk-Treasurer within three days after filing with the County Clerk. Two black and white cloth prints of the final profile bearing the approval of the Nassau County Department of Public Works shall be filed with the Village Clerk or Village Clerk-Treasurer within three days after filing the plat with the County Clerk.
The approval of plats shall be subject to such other additional requirements as the Planning Board considers necessary or desirable in the interests of the public health, safety and general welfare.
A public hearing is required on all petitions for approval of plats.
