C. 
The Plan Commission shall further make a determination of adequacy of public facilities and services for the preliminary plat, as herein set forth.
(1) 
A preliminary plat shall not be approved unless the Plan Commission and the Village Board determine that adequate public facilities and public services are available to meet the needs of the proposed land division.
(2) 
The subdivider shall furnish any data requested by the Plan Commission or the Village staff, who shall transmit this information to the appropriate commissions(s) and committee(s) for review and shall act as coordinator for their reports to the Plan Commission and the Village Board on the adequacy of water, sanitary sewer, storm sewer, police service, fire service, parks and open space, transportation facilities and schools.

After receipt of the Plan Commission's recommendation, the Village Board shall, within 90 days of the date the plat was filed with the Village Clerk, approve, conditionally approve or reject such plat and shall state, in writing, any conditions of approval or reasons for rejection unless the time is extended by agreement with the subdivider. Failure of the Village Board to act within 90 days or extension thereof shall constitute an approval of the preliminary plat, unless other authorized agencies object to the plat.
B. 
Effect of preliminary plat approval. Approval or conditional approval of a preliminary plat shall not constitute automatic approval of the final plat, except that if the final plat is submitted within 24 months of preliminary plat approval by the Village Board and conforms substantially to the preliminary plat, the final plat shall be entitled to approval. The preliminary plat shall be deemed an expression of approval or conditional approval of the layout submitted as a guide to the preparation of the final plat.
C. 
Preliminary plat amendment. Any amendments to the preliminary plat, subsequent to Village Board approval, require the preliminary plat to be resubmitted and comply with the procedures and requirements set forth within §§ 460-11 through 460-14. If any objecting authority materially modifies the preliminary plat, as solely determined herein by the Village Board, subsequent to approval by the Village Board, the Village Board shall have the right to review and approve any changes or modifications required by the objecting authority. If an objecting authority modifies the Village Board's approved preliminary plat, the Village Board may revoke its approval.
D. 
Developer's agreement. As a condition of preliminary plat approval, the Village Board may require the execution of a developer's agreement covering the proposed plat and public improvements.

C. 
Improvements. After the required improvements are installed or a developer's agreement and sureties insuring their installation are approved by the Village Board, and all parkland dedication fees and associated platting fees are paid in full, unless expressly provided for in the developer's agreement, the Village Clerk shall cause the certificate inscribed upon the final plat attesting to such approval to be duly executed and the final plat be returned to the subdivider for recording with the Marathon County Register of Deeds. The Marathon County Register of Deeds shall not record the final plat unless it is offered within 30 days of the last approval of the plat and within 24 months after the first approval. The subdivider shall provide the Village with a certified copy of the recorded plat within 30 days of recording.
A. 
When a division of land is created which requires Village approval of a certified survey map, the subdivider may consult Village staff and Village Engineer regarding the requirements for certified surveys before submission of the final map to the Plan Commission. Following consultation, a copy of the final map in the form of a certified survey map, in accordance with Wis. Stats. § 236.34 and this chapter, shall be submitted to the Village Clerk at least 14 days prior to the regular meeting of the Plan Commission.
B. 
The Plan Commission shall, within 90 days of the filing, make a determination to approve, conditionally approve or reject the certified survey map. The certified survey map shall be deemed rejected unless an agreement is entered to extend the review period. The subdivider shall record the map with the applicable Marathon County Register of Deeds within 30 days of its approval. Failure to do so shall necessitate reapproval of the map by the Plan Commission.
C. 
The certified survey map shall comply with the provisions of this chapter relating to general requirements, design standards and required improvements. Recorded copies of the certified survey map shall be filed with the Village Clerk. Certified survey maps requiring public improvements shall conform to this chapter.
A. 
The subdivider shall pay the Village all fees as hereinafter required before being entitled to the recording of the final plat or certified survey map.

B. 
The subdivider shall pay all engineering and legal fees equal to the actual costs to the Village for all engineering and legal work incurred by the Village in connection with the preliminary plats, final plats, public improvements, plans and specifications and certified survey maps, including inspections required by the Village. The subdivider shall pay a fee equal to the actual cost to the Village for such inspection as the Village Board deems necessary to assure that the construction of the required improvements is in compliance with the public improvements, plans, and specifications and ordinances of the Village or any other governmental authority.
A. 
Except as provided in Wis. Stats. § 70.27(1), when it is proposed to replat a recorded subdivision, or part thereof, so as to change the boundaries of a recorded subdivision, or part thereof, the subdivider or person wishing to replat shall vacate or alter the recorded plat as provided in Wis. Stats. §§ 236.36 through 236.44. Replatting shall follow the procedures for preliminary and final plats as required in this chapter.
B. 
Where lots are more than double the minimum size required for the applicable zoning district, the Plan Commission may require that such lots be arranged so as to allow resubdivision of such parcels in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.
A. 
Subdivisions within the extraterritorial jurisdiction. In planning and developing a subdivision in the unincorporated area of Marathon County within three miles of the Village, the subdivider shall respect the procedure as described in this chapter.
B. 
Application for preliminary plat filing. The subdivider shall prepare a preliminary plat of the proposed subdivision in accordance with the requirements of this chapter and shall file with the Village Clerk a completed, formal application for approval of the plat, accompanied by 10 copies of the preliminary plat, at least 30 days prior to the meeting of the Plan Commission at which action is desired.
C. 
Review and recommendations. The preliminary plat shall be reviewed by the Plan Commission to determine its conformity to this chapter and all other Village ordinances and regulations, the Official Map and Comprehensive Plan. Copies of the preliminary plat shall be reviewed by the Village staff and the Village Engineer for their written recommendations. Their recommendations in respect thereto shall be transmitted to the Plan Commission.
D. 
Action on preliminary plat by the Village Board. Within 90 days of the formal submission of a preliminary plat, the Village Board shall take action to approve, approve conditionally or reject the preliminary plat and shall state in writing any conditions of approval or reasons for rejection unless the time is extended by agreement with the subdivider. Failure of the Village Board to act within 90 days, or extension thereof, constitutes an approval of the formally submitted preliminary plat.
E. 
Filing of final plat. Within 24 months of the date of approval or conditional approval of the preliminary plat, a completed, formal application for approval of the plat, accompanied by the final plat and 10 copies thereof which shall conform to the requirements of Subch. IV of Ch. 236, Wis. Stats., shall be submitted to the Village Clerk.
F. 
Final plat review and recommendations. The final plat shall be reviewed by the Plan Commission to determine its conformity to this chapter and all other ordinances and regulations in force which affect the subdivision or platting of land, the approved preliminary plat and any conditions of approval and adopted local plans. Copies of the final plat shall be reviewed by Village staff and the Village Engineer for their written recommendations. Their recommendations in respect thereto shall be transmitted to the Plan Commission.
G. 
Action on final plat by the Village Board. Within 60 days of the formal submission of a final plat, unless the time is extended by agreement with the subdivider, the Village Board shall take action to approve, approve conditionally or reject the final plat and shall state in writing any conditions of approval or reasons for rejection. Failure of the Village Board to act within the 60 days, or extension thereof, constitutes an approval of the formally submitted final plat.
A. 
Purpose. There are areas in the Village where accurate location of property boundaries is difficult if not impossible. Many land owners believe their respective land parcel has been surveyed because it is shown in the Assessor or County Treasurer's plat book; however, only those land parcels which have been surveyed and recorded as a subdivision plat or certified survey map and filed in the Register of Deeds office, constitute a record survey.
B. 
Benefits. An Assessor's plat survey benefits the property owner. By clarifying boundaries, title determinations are made definite, financing is more easily obtained, transfer of title is readily accomplished, taxation and special assessments are equitably ascertained.
C. 
Who may order. Wis. Stats. § 70.27 grants the Village authority to order a survey of areas within the Village whenever any area of platted or unplatted land is owned by two or more persons in severalty, and when, in the judgment of the Board, the description of one or more of the different parcels thereof cannot be made sufficiently certain and accurate for the purposes of assessment, taxation or tax title procedures without noting the correct metes and bounds of the same, or when such gross errors exist in lot measurements or location that difficulty is encountered in locating new structures, public utilities or streets.
D. 
Assessor's plat survey procedures.
(1) 
The Village Engineer, in cooperation with the Assessor and Zoning Administrator, shall select areas which, in their judgment, require resurveying due to evidence of deed discrepancies, lack of lot staking or boundary disputes between owners. Their written recommendations shall be referred to the Plan Commission.
(2) 
The Plan Commission shall recommend to the Village Board those areas, if any, to be surveyed.
(3) 
Upon approval by the Village Board, a date shall be scheduled for a public hearing. A notice of the hearing shall be mailed by certified mail to all owners of record. Where the owners of record cannot be found, the notice shall be mailed to the tenants of the property to be surveyed.
(4) 
The proposed Assessor's plat survey project shall be explained by the Village officials to those who appear at the hearing. Maps of the areas to be surveyed along with a listing of the property owners and a schedule of estimated special assessment charges shall be available for inspection by any interested person.
(5) 
After report of Plan Commission adoption of a final resolution by the Village Board, the Assessor's plat survey shall be let under contract to a registered land surveyor for those Board-approved areas.
(6) 
The surveyor making the plat shall survey and lay out the boundaries of each parcel, street, alley, lane, roadway or dedication to public or private use, according to the records of the Register of Deeds and whatever evidence may be available to show the intent of the buyer and seller. In the chronological order of their conveyance or dedication, he or she shall set temporary monuments to show the results of such survey and make a map thereof to a scale of not more than 100 feet per inch. The owners of record of lands in the proposed plat shall be notified by registered letter mailed to their last know address, in order that they have opportunity to examine the map, view the temporary monuments and make known any disagreement with the boundaries as shown by the temporary monuments. It is the duty of the surveyor making the plat to reconcile any discrepancies revealed so the plat, as certified to the governing body, is in conformity with the records of the Register of Deeds as nearly as is practicable. When boundary lines between adjacent parcels, as evidenced on the ground, are mutually agreed to in writing by the owners of record, such lines shall be the true boundaries for all purposes thereafter, even though they may vary from the descriptions previously of record. Such written agreements shall be recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds for Marathon County. On every Assessor's plat, as certified to the governing body, shall appear the volume, page and document number of the metes and bounds description of each parcel as recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds, which shall be identified with the number or letter by which such parcel is designated on the plat, except that lots which have been conveyed or otherwise acquired but upon which no deed is recorded in the office of the Register of Deeds may be shown on an Assessor's plat and, when so shown, shall contain a full metes and bounds description, Wis. Stats. § 70.27(5).
(7) 
The surveyor shall stake all lot corners, for each parcel in the Assessor's plat, with iron pipe monuments, after all discrepancies have been reconciled with the property owners involved.
(8) 
After completion of the field survey, the surveyor shall prepare a final map of the Assessor's plat and forward it to the State of Wisconsin for approval.
(9) 
When the State of Wisconsin returns the approved Assessor's plat map, the Village Clerk shall publish a notice in the local newspaper advising the public the plat will be displayed at the Village Hall for 30 days for public inspection. During this thirty-day inspection period, the owner of any parcel within the Assessor's plat may file an objection or request for correction with the Village Clerk. The Village Board cannot approve the Assessor's plat for record until any such objections are satisfied by stipulation of the owners, or judgment of a court of record, should a suit for correction be filed by any owner.
(10) 
Upon completion of the foregoing procedures and final approval of the Assessor's plat by the Village Board, the plat shall be delivered to the surveyor in order that he or she may record it with the Register of Deeds. A copy of the approved final plat shall be provided by the Village through the Village Engineer's office to all affected property owners without charge.
E. 
Costs of Assessor's plat. The Village contracts with a registered land surveyor to perform Assessor's plat surveys for a specified amount per lot or parcel. The Village shall share the cost with each property owner on a fifty-fifty basis. The Village may levy a special assessment against the property for Assessor's plat surveys. The special assessment is computed at a specific charge per $1,000 of land valuation excluding buildings and improvements as required by Wisconsin Statutes.
(1) 
Any land parcel or lot in the Village, which has been surveyed, and recorded on a subdivision plat or certified survey map and for which monuments or stakes exist, will be included in an Assessor's plat survey without charge to the property owner;
(2) 
If any land parcel or lot is a part of an old recorded subdivision plat or a certified survey map which has evident errors, lacks sufficient monuments or stakes do not exist, the lot or lots involved will be included in the Assessor's plat survey and the property owner will be charged a special assessment;
(3) 
The Village will invoice each property owner involved for his share of the surveying cost as a special assessment upon the recording of the final Assessor's plat.
F. 
Responsibilities of the certified land surveyor.
(1) 
It is the primary responsibility of the surveyor performing the Assessor's plat survey to locate property corners in conformity with record deeds wherever possible. If any property corners or lines located by deed description do not fit existing property improvements, the surveyor must cooperate with the adjoining owners to locate a property line which is acceptable by mutual agreement between them. After completion of the staking of each land parcel, the surveyor prepares an Assessor's plat or map of his or her survey. This plat or map is then recorded in the Marathon County Register of Deeds office as an official record document after it has been approved by the State of Wisconsin and the Village. After recording, each land parcel contained within the plat or map is referred thereafter by a lot number of such plat, notwithstanding some other description on the deed for the parcel. The record deeds are cross-referenced on the recorded plat for each parcel surveyed.
(2) 
Chapter 59, Wis. Stats., provides any land surveyor, retained by an individual or corporation to perform a survey, must file a true and correct map or plat of such survey in the office of the county surveyor within 60 days of its completion. Such law also provides that while engaged in surveying, the land surveyor and his assistants shall not be liable for trespass upon any private property, but shall be liable for any actual damage done to the land or property, such as cutting of trees, without the permission of the owner.
A. 
The Village Board hereby acknowledges that certain issues arise in condominium developments that require limited applicability of this chapter to condominium developments. The State Legislature has recognized that subdivision ordinances may apply to condominiums, but that subdivision ordinances shall not impose burdens upon condominiums that are different from those imposed on other property of a similar character not subject to a declaration of condominium.
B. 
A condominium development is the creation of multiple, distinct property entities at or near the ground surface, subject to property taxation as separate parcels, with each property entity having different ownership and management in accordance with Ch. 703, Wis. Stats. The Village determines that this factor makes a condominium development dissimilar, both physically and in ownership, from developments in which the land and improvements are under unitary ownership, management and control.
C. 
The Village Board finds that new condominium developments can place impacts on community resources in the same manner as other new developments which are characterized by division of land into lots. These impacts include:
(1) 
Additional population density.
(2) 
Possibility of use of particular land in a manner unsuitable to the land's characteristics.
(3) 
Additional demands upon Village parks, recreation areas, utility facilities and schools.
(4) 
Additional traffic and street use.
D. 
Condominium developments shall comply with Ch. 703, Wis. Stats., the provisions of this chapter, including plat approval, and, where appropriate, Chapter 520, Zoning, of the Code of the Village of Kronenwetter.
Cemetery plats shall comply with Wis. Stats. § 157.07, the provisions of this chapter and, where appropriate, Chapter 520, Zoning.
A. 
Purpose. The purpose of this section is to assist the ambulance, Fire and Police Departments to quickly locate correct addresses at which to provide emergency services by requiring numbers to be placed in prominently visible locations on buildings.
B. 
Specifications.
(1) 
Display requirement. The standard assigned number shall be placed on every house and building in the Village.
(2) 
Number assignment. Street numbers for dwelling units and places of business on all public and private streets shall be assigned by the Village Zoning Administrator in accordance with the Village address guide.
(3) 
Address baselines. The baseline for north-south streets is the Kronenwetter-Knowlton-Guenther Townline. Address numbers increase to the north. The baseline for east-west streets is the Wisconsin River. Address numbers increase to the east.
(4) 
Address range. Each address one-hundred block shall be the quarter mile or a change in address for every 26 feet.
(5) 
Even-odd street numbers. Even numbers shall be assigned for addresses on the north and east side of the street. Odd numbers shall be assigned for addresses on the south and west side of the street.
[Added 11-14-2011 by Ord. No. 11-15]
A. 
Required information. The applicant shall submit a complete application to the Village along with a certified survey map or deed with exhibit map claiming this exemption. The map must clearly distinguish between the existing boundary line locations and, in the case of a relocation, the new boundary.
B. 
Review criteria. The Zoning Administrator shall review and issue a written decision on relocation of the common boundary application. The Zoning Administrator shall use the following criteria to determine if the use of the exemption is for the purpose of evading the Subdivision Ordinance:
(1) 
The Zoning Administrator determines that the documentation submitted according to this section does not support the stated reason for relocation;
(2) 
The proposed parcels create any lot which does not conform in whole or in part to the Village Zoning Ordinance;[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: See Ch. 250, Zoning.
(3) 
The Zoning Administrator determines that the proposal is an attempt to evade the Village Subdivision Ordinance;
(4) 
The proposed relocation will render any existing structure nonconforming, in whole or in part, or will expand or intensify any existing nonconformity as defined by the Village Zoning Ordinance; or
(5) 
The proposed relocation creates a new buildable tract from one that did not have a practical building site previously.
C. 
Appeals. The applicant may appeal the decision of the Zoning Administrator to the Plan Commission and Village Board. If the applicant wishes to appeal the decision of the Zoning Administrator, the applicant must submit a written request to the Village within 30 days from the date of the Zoning Administrator's decision.
