Submission And Review Procedure.
1. 
Processing cost deposit.
a. 
A processing cost deposit, in the amount of two thousand dollars ($2,000.00), shall be paid into the City at the time the preliminary plat is filed in the City Clerk's office. Processing and all other actions related to the subdivision shall not proceed until the deposit is paid in full. The deposit is for the purpose of providing funds for professional and administrative costs incidental to the processing of plats. Any costs or expenses incurred by the City as a result of the submission, review and final determination of any given plat, according to the subdivision review and approval process as set out in this Section, shall be paid for out of the said deposited amount. Said costs or expenses incurred by the City, to be deducted from the said deposit, shall be determined by the City Clerk from specific billings submitted to the City by the City Engineer, the City Attorney, the City's Planning Department and any other consulting professionals.
b. 
If at any time during the processing of the subdivision application it appears that the processing cost deposit is insufficient to reimburse the City for all such expenses incurred or to be incurred, the City Clerk shall present to the subdivider a listing of all actual and anticipated costs or expenses and shall notify the subdivider of any additional cost assessment necessary for the completion of the subdivision process. The subdivider shall remit the additional amount to the City within ten (10) days of the date of the City Clerk's notice, or within such additional time as may be allowed by the Chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission. Processing and all other actions related to the subdivision, including final determination or disposition, shall not proceed until such additional cost assessment is paid in full. Failure to remit the additional cost assessment shall be grounds for denial of the preliminary plat by the Planning and Zoning Commission.
c. 
Within thirty (30) days from the final determination or disposition by the City of any subdivision plat, at whatever stage that may occur, the City Clerk shall present to the subdivider a listing of all deposits, costs and expenses. Any portion of said deposited monies not expended or budgeted for expenditures shall be returned to the subdivider at that time; provided, however, that the City shall in any event retain a minimum amount of two hundred fifty dollars ($250.00) from said processing cost deposit. Conversely, if the processing cost deposit is insufficient to reimburse the City for incurred expenses, the subdivider, within ten (10) days of receipt of the City Clerk's accounting, shall remit additional funds for complete reimbursement of the City's processing costs.
d. 
The deposit required herein shall be separate from, and is not intended to include, any building or improvement or any other permit fees or any escrow monitoring fees.
2. 
Department review and notice.
a. 
The Planning Director shall determine whether the subdivision application is complete, including the submission of an application, a processing cost deposit, a preliminary plat and any other documents required by the Subdivision Ordinance.
b. 
If the application is complete the Planning Director shall schedule the application for hearing by the Commission, and the Planning Department shall review the preliminary plat for conformance with the land development standards established by Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code. The Department shall then submit its report, including any recommendations, to the Commission.
c. 
After a hearing has been scheduled by the Planning Director, the City Clerk, not less than fifteen (15) days prior to the hearing, shall post a notice of the hearing in clear view on the property proposed to be subdivided. Said notice shall state that the Planning and Zoning Commission will be considering a preliminary plat for the subdivision of that particular property, setting forth in general terms the description of the property being considered and the date, time and place of the public hearing. The notice shall also state that all interested persons may examine at City Hall all public documents relating to the subdivision and may appear and be heard at the Commission's hearing concerning the subdivision.
d. 
In addition to the posting of notice, the City shall at the same time send a copy of such notice by first class mail to all property owners shown by the City's tax records to be located within three hundred (300) feet of the boundaries of the property proposed to be subdivided. The City shall also attempt to notify the trustees of adjoining subdivisions, but the failure to notify said trustees shall not invalidate the notice.
3. 
Commission review.
a. 
Within sixty (60) days of submission of a complete application, the Commission shall hold a hearing of record on the preliminary plat and shall approve, deny or approve with conditions. This sixty (60) day period may be extended by the Commission upon the request of the subdivider, or upon the request of the Department with the approval of the subdivider. Any additional filings by the subdivider after the submission of a completed application, including but not limited to an amended plat, shall constitute a request for extension of time by the subdivider. If the Commission refuses to grant a requested extension, or if the subdivider fails to approve an extension sought by the Department, the Commission shall hold a timely hearing and shall approve, deny or approve with conditions the plat on the record then before the Commission. Absent an extension of time, the failure of the Commission to act within sixty (60) days of the submission of a complete application shall be deemed an approval of the application.
b. 
In any hearing of record to consider a plat, the Municipal Code, the City's Comprehensive Plan and land use map, the City's file on the proposed plat, all staff reports, and minutes of all Commission meetings during which the plat was considered shall all be deemed part of the record.
c. 
When the preliminary plat and other materials on file with the Commission fail to conform with the land development standards established by Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code, or when those standards fail to address platted land features which may create a risk of physical injury as provided in Section 410.150(B)(4)(c), the Department or the Commission may request the subdivider to submit supplementary cross-sections, surveys, studies, alignments or other engineering material to be used in analyzing and studying the proposed subdivision of land.
4. 
Plat approval.
a. 
If the Commission finds that the preliminary plat conforms with the land development standards established by Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code, the Commission shall approve the plat.
b. 
If the Commission finds that the preliminary plat does not conform with the land development standards established by Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code, the Commission may approve the plat on such conditions or contingencies which would either bring the plat into compliance with said standards or which would require a variance from such standards.
c. 
If the Commission finds that the land development standards included in Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code fail to address platted land features which create a risk of physical injury to present or future inhabitants of the proposed, adjoining or otherwise affected subdivision, or to other inhabitants of the City or the general public, the Commission may approve the plat only on such conditions or contingencies that would resolve the risk created by the unsuitable land condition.
5. 
Effect of plat approval.
a. 
Conditional approval of the preliminary plat authorizes the subdivider to prepare subdivision improvement plans.
b. 
One (1) copy of each approved preliminary plat shall be retained by the City and one (1) copy shall be given to the subdivider. Both copies shall be signed indicating the City's approval.
c. 
The approval of a preliminary plat by the Commission does not constitute or effect any acceptance by the City of the dedication to public use of any street or the ground shown upon the plat.
d. 
The approval of the preliminary plat shall be effective for one (1) year, unless the subdivider has proceeded with completing additional steps in the City's subdivision procedure, after which it shall be deemed void. Any resubmittal of an expired preliminary plat shall be accompanied by a second (2nd) application and filing fee.
e. 
The record plat shall be submitted to the Board within one (1) year after approval of the preliminary plat by the Commission. The Board may, in its discretion, grant an extension of time for submitting the record plat to the Board, up to a maximum of six (6) months. More than one (1) extension of time may be granted by the Board. Failure to submit the record plat to the Board within the time prescribed herein shall void the approval of the preliminary plat.
f. 
Within sixty (60) days after approval of the final plat by the Board, the subdivider shall record the plat, as approved by the Board, in the office of the Recorder of Deeds, St. Louis County, Missouri. Failure to file the final plat as approved and within the time prescribed herein shall void the approval of the plat.
6. 
Preliminary plat denial.
a. 
If the Commission finds that the preliminary plat does not conform with the land development standards established by Sections 410.190 and 410.200 of this Code, and the Commission has not otherwise granted conditional approval pursuant to Section 410.150(B)(4)(b) hereof, the Commission shall deny the plat.
b. 
The denial of a preliminary plat by the Commission shall be final and not subject to reconsideration. Any refiling of a denied preliminary plat shall be accompanied by another subdivision application, including an additional processing cost deposit. The Commission shall not accept the refiling of a denied preliminary plat for one (1) year from the date of the denial unless the Commission finds that the preliminary plat has been substantially revised to address the original plat's deficiencies or that substantial new facts or change in circumstances warrant reapplication.
7. 
Commission findings and report. Any determination by the Commission to approve, approve with conditions or deny a preliminary plat shall be made and entered on the record of the Commission. If the Commission conditionally approves a preliminary plat, the Commission's findings and conclusions in support of the conditions imposed shall be reduced to writing and communicated to the subdivider.

All stormwater improvements shall be designed, constructed and installed in conformance with MSD regulations.
(2) 
All stormwater plans shall be reviewed and approved by the City. However, plans for stormwater facilities on easements dedicated to and maintained by MSD shall be reviewed and approved by MSD.
c. 
Designated City Officials shall review all other portions of the improvement plans and accompanying documentation for which they are responsible. They shall sign that portion of their plans indicating their approval or disapproval.

The department shall report approvals or disapprovals to the Commission.
(1) 
The Commission shall study the report and recommendation and approve or disapprove the improvement plans together with the accompanying documents.
(2) 
Commission approval of the improvement plans shall be indicated in writing on all three (3) sets of plans.
(3) 
Receipt by the subdivider of the signed improvement plans shall be authorization for the subdivider to install the improvements, provided he/she first obtains a site improvement permit from the Director.
(4) 
Commission approval of the improvement plans shall be effective for two (2) years. No extensions shall be granted without the subdivider resubmitting his/her plans and the required accompanying documents for Commission reapproval. A filing fee of fifty dollars ($50.00) shall be charged for the resubmission.
E. 
Inspections.
1. 
General inspections. Periodic inspection by the department shall be made of the subdivision during the planning stages and as construction progresses.
2. 
Required inspections. A list of the required inspections made by the City shall be prepared by the department and issued together with the improvement permit.
3. 
The subdivider shall notify the City Clerk not less than forty-eight (48) hours in advance of required inspections that work is ready for inspection.
4. 
The City Engineer shall make his/her inspections as the official representative of the City and shall promptly report all defects and substandard work or materials to the designated official within the department.
5. 
The subdivider shall comply with other inspection requirements from any other agency having jurisdiction within the City if any improvement installation is within another agency's jurisdiction.
F. 
Permits. Prior to the grading and installation of any improvements within a subdivision, a site improvement permit shall be obtained from the Director. The permit shall be issued after the permit fee is paid. The fee shall be based on a charge of one percent (1%) of the estimated cost of improvements to be installed provided the estimated cost is approved by the City Engineer. The fee is charged to cover the City's costs related to the subdivision development. The permit shall be valid for two (2) years. The subdivider may apply for an extension of the permit's duration. A permit extension fee of one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) shall be charged. The Board shall authorize such extension provided the subdivider has demonstrated valid hardship and unforeseen practical difficulties.
G. 
Surety Requirements. Prior to the approval of the record plat, after approval of the improvement plans, and after the payment of all the site improvement permit fees, the development of the subdivision shall be guaranteed to the City.
1. 
By the satisfactory installation of the improvements in accordance with the approved improvement plans. A contract on which there has been full performance by the developer, including but not limited to payment in full, for the installation of public utilities and electric, telephone, water and gas shall be deemed satisfactory completion of such utilities; or
2. 
By the posting of surety for the benefit of the City in the form of an irrevocable letter of credit, a performance bond, an escrow account, or other guaranty, subject to the approval by the Director and Board of Aldermen and in a form approved by the City Attorney.
a. 
The Director shall determine the amount to be assured based upon generally accepted industry formulas for the costs of each such improvement. The amount of such surety shall be equal to the total costs of improvements as so determined, less any of such costs attributable to the completed improvements and less the costs of public utilities then under contract on which there has been full performance by the developer, including but not limited to payment in full, with each utility for completion.
b. 
Upon completion of each category of improvement or utility work for which the developer is seeking a surety release, the developer shall submit to the Director at least three (3) copies of "as built" drawings satisfactory to the Director which show the actual installation of improvements, and, when applicable, certification from the developer's engineer that the stormwater detention system satisfies the City's minimum standards in effect at the time the improvement plans were approved by the City.
c. 
The Director shall review the "as built" drawings and determine whether each category of the improvements have been completed and, as appropriate, accepted by the utilities. Upon satisfactory completion of each category of the improvements as determined by the Director and the acceptance of such improvements by the utilities (whether storm and sanitary sewers have or have not yet been accepted for maintenance by the Metropolitan Sewer District), a certificate of substantial completion shall be issued by the Director. In the event there is any significant difference between such "as built" drawings and the approved improvement plans, no certificate of substantial completion may be issued until the difference is resolved either by requiring that the improvements be changed to substantially conform to the plans or by the approval of the "as built" improvements by the Planning Commission.
d. 
Within thirty (30) days of the issuance of a certificate of substantial completion, any surety held by the City for the specified category of improvement shall be released, less five percent (5%) of the surety amounts which shall be retained until a certificate of completion has been issued as provided in Section 410.160(G)(2)(e) hereof. The release shall be effective when the funds are duly posted with the United States Postal Service or other agreed upon delivery service or when the funds are hand delivered to an authorized person or place as specified by the developer.
e. 
Within sixty (60) days after one (1) year has elapsed since the issuance of a certificate of substantial completion, the Board of Aldermen shall place the matter of final release of the surety on its agenda. Notice of the date of such meeting shall be given by the City Clerk to the principal on the surety agreement and to trustees of and owners of property in the affected subdivision. If the Director and Board of Aldermen shall find that all of the improvements are in satisfactory condition and all utilities have been accepted for maintenance by the appropriate utility, a certificate of completion shall be issued and the surety discharged and released. In the event the improvements are in satisfactory condition, but the sewers have not yet been accepted for maintenance by the Metropolitan Sewer District, the surety shall be released except for those remaining surety amounts which had been established and reserved for the sewers.
f. 
In the event such certificate of completion cannot be issued as contemplated in Section 410.160(G)(2)(e) above, the developer shall immediately and satisfactorily complete the improvements and utilities. If the developer fails to do so, the City may either draw upon said surety amount being retained for the satisfactory completion of the improvements or bring such legal action as may be necessary to ensure the satisfactory completion of the improvements and utilities.
g. 
In the event a surety amount is retained as provided in Section 410.160(G)(2)(e) because of the fact that sewers have not yet been accepted, as provided above, such amount shall remain until such sewers have been accepted or until the Board of Aldermen, upon application of the principal, shall release said surety for the reason that it is no longer necessary, practical or desirable to retain such surety.
