§ 54-1 Purpose.

The Official Map is established in order to provide for orderly, safe and economical expansion of the community by designating the location and extent of existing and proposed streets, highways and parks on an official map; to ensure proper legal descriptions and monumenting of land; to facilitate adequate provision for transportation, parks, playgrounds and stormwater drainage; and to facilitate further subdivision of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land.

§ 54-2 Interpretation; changes and additions.

The Official Map is intended to be final and conclusive with respect to the location and extent of streets, highways and parks shown on the map. The Village Board may change or add to the map if it is determined to be in the public interest. Changes and additions shall be made in accordance with procedures in Wis. Stat. § 62.23. The placing of proposed streets, highways or parks upon the Official Map shall not constitute or be deemed to constitute the opening or establishment of such streets, highways or parks, or the taking or acceptance of any land for such purposes.

§ 54-3 Subdivision plats and building permits. [1]

The Plan Commission shall require that all subdivision plats and certified survey maps conform to the Official Map. All streets within recorded subdivisions and certified survey maps approved by the Plan Commission and Village Board shall become a part of the Official Map. No building permit shall be issued for any structure in the bed of any street or highway shown on the Official Map and no permit for the erection of any structure shall be issued unless a street or highway giving access to the structure has been duly placed on such map, except as provided in Wis. Stat. § 62.23. The Building Inspector shall require each applicant to submit a plot plan (unless the site is a lot in a recorded subdivision plat or certified survey map), certified by a registered surveyor, showing accurately the location of any proposed building with reference to the adjacent streets, highways or parks shown on the Official Map.
