There is hereby established an Official Road Map of the Town of Winneconne and parts thereof, showing the location and width of future streets, highways, parks, and playgrounds. The Official Road Map shall be conclusive with respect to the location, width and extent thereof. The placing of any street, highway, park or playground line or lines upon the Official Road Map[1] does not constitute the opening or establishment of any street, parkway, park or playground or the taking or acceptance of any land for these purposes.
Editor's Note: Throughout this chapter, references to "Official Map" were amended to read "Official Road Map" at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
No land division or subdivision plat shall be approved unless such land division or subdivision plat conforms to the Official Road Map.
Prior to issuing any type of building permit, the Town Building Inspector shall review the Town's Official Road Map to determine if the application involves the construction or expansion of a structure within an official mapped street, highway, park, or playground. Based on the Town Building Inspector's determination, the building permit application may either be granted or denied within 30 days. If the Town Building Inspector issues a permit for building construction within an official mapped street, highway, park, playground, or waterway, the recipient of the permit is not entitled to compensation for damages or demolition of any structure if the Town authorizes the building of the official mapped street, highway, park, or playground.
Issued county zoning permits in conflict with this chapter will be invalid.
Before taking any action authorized by this chapter, the Town Board shall hold a public hearing, at which time interested parties shall have an opportunity to be heard. The Town Board may amend the Official Road Map on its own accord, pursuant to this chapter.
A filing fee, established by the Town Board, and an application for amendment to the Official Road Map will be available from the Town Clerk. Amendment applications will first be presented to the Town Plan Commission. Within 60 days, the Plan Commission shall make a recommendation to the Town Board. Within 90 days of filing, the Town Board will set a public hearing (advertised as a Class 2 notice) and will either approve or deny the amendment. If the amendment is approved, it will become part of the Official Road Map. Nonaction by the Town Board shall constitute denial of the amendment.
If any portion of land within the mapped street, highway, park, or playground is no longer considered by the Town Board to be in the best interest of or important for the Town to reserve, the Town Board may amend the Official Road Map (following the amendment process in this section). If the amendment is approved, the Building Inspector may grant a permit for a building or addition in the previously officially mapped parcel. The Town Board may impose reasonable requirements as a condition of granting the permit to promote public health, convenience, safety or general welfare of Town residential areas.
Where enforcement of the provisions of this chapter would entail practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship, the applicant may appeal the decision of the Town Building Inspector to the Town Board. The Board may, in passing on such appeal, make any reasonable exception and issue the permit subject to conditions that will protect any future street, highway or park layout.
The Winneconne Town Clerk shall record with the Winnebago County Register of Deeds showing that the Town of Winneconne has established an Official Road Map and shall do likewise as to any amendment.
It shall be the responsibility of the Town Clerk to maintain and keep all maps and property descriptions comprising the Official Road Map up-to-date. The Town Clerk shall be responsible for prompt portrayal of all amendments to the Official Road Map.
The Town of Winneconne Building Inspector shall be responsible for the enforcement of this chapter. No building permit shall be issued by the Town Building Inspector where a building, structure or development project directly conflicts with the Official Road Map.
Anyone who violates the conditions of this chapter shall be subject to the penalties provided in Chapter 1, § 1-4 of this Code.
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
