By the authority of the resolution of the Village Board of the Village of Perry, pursuant to the provisions of the Village Law of the State of New York, the Village Planning Board is hereby authorized to approve plats showing lots, blocks or sites, with or without streets or highways, to approve the development of entirely or partially undeveloped plats already filed in the office of the Clerk of the County of Wyoming, and to approve preliminary plats within the Village of Perry.
These regulations shall hereafter be known, cited and referred to as the "Village of Perry Land Subdivision Regulations."
It is hereby declared to be the policy of the Village Planning Board to consider the subdivision of land and the subsequent development of the subdivided plat as subject to municipal control pursuant to the official Master Plan for the orderly, planned, efficient, and economical development of the Village of Perry.
Land to be subdivided shall be of such character that it can be used safely for building purposes without danger to health or peril from fire, flood, or other menace; that proper provision shall be made for drainage, water supply, sewerage and other needed improvements; that all proposed lots shall be so laid out and of such size as to be in harmony with the development pattern of the neighboring properties; that the proposed streets shall compose a convenient system conforming to the Official Map and shall be properly related to the proposals shown on the Master Plan and shall be of such width, grade and location as to accommodate the prospective traffic, to facilitate fire protection and to provide access of fire-fighting equipment to buildings; and that proper provision shall be made for open spaces for parks and playgrounds.
In their interpretation and application, the provisions of these regulations shall be held to be the minimum requirements for the promotion of the public health, safety, and general welfare.
Where the Planning Board finds that, due to the special circumstances of a particular plat, the provision of certain required improvements is not requisite in the interest of the public health, safety and general welfare or is inappropriate because of inadequacy or lack of connecting facilities adjacent or in proximity to the proposed subdivision, it may waive such requirements subject to appropriate conditions, provided that such waiver will not have the effect of nullifying the intent and purpose of the Official Map, the Master Plan, or the Zoning Law.
In granting waivers, the Planning Board shall require such conditions as will, in its judgment, secure substantially the objectives of the standards or requirements so waived.
