[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Glen Cove 8-25-1981 by L.L. No. 1-1981 as Ch. 7 of the 1981 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to § 27 of the General City Law and § 2-5 of the City Charter, the City Planning Board is continued to consist of seven members to be appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the City Council, exclusive of the Mayor, and to serve for three-year staggered terms so that two expire one year, two expire the following year and three expire the next succeeding year. If a vacancy occurs other than by expiration of term, it shall be filled by appointment for the unexpired term.
The Planning Board shall have all the powers and duties that may be conferred upon it pursuant to Article 3 of the General City Law, including but not limited to:
Approval of plats. Approval of plats showing lots, blocks or sites, with or without streets or highways.
Approval of the development of plats. Approval of the development of plats, entirely or partially undeveloped and which have been filed in the office of the County Clerk in which such plat is located prior to the appointment of such Planning Board, and to grant to such Board the power to approve plats.
The City Clerk shall have the duty to file with the Clerk of Nassau County a certificate showing that said Planning Board has been so authorized and that the City Clerk shall issue in its behalf the certificate of failure to take action as stated in § 32 of the General City Law.
No plan, plat or description showing the layout of any highway or street upon private property or of building lots in connection with or in relation to such highway or street shall, within the limits of the city, be received for recording in the office of the Clerk of Nassau County unless a copy of such plan, plot or description has been submitted to the City Planning Board and it has certified with relation thereto its approval thereof. Such certificate shall be recorded as a part of the record of said original instrument containing said plan, plot or description. If the Planning Board fails to act within 45 days of submission of the plat for approval, the plat shall be deemed to have been approved, and the City Clerk upon demand shall issue a certificate of failure to take action, which shall be sufficient in lieu of endorsement for filing such plat in the office of the County Clerk.
No such street or highway which has not received the approval of the City Planning Board shall be accepted by the city until the matter has been referred to the City Planning Board.
