All improvements proposed to be made under the provisions of this Chapter, both public and private, shall be inspected during the course of construction by the City's duly designated representative. They shall also be inspected and must be approved, as installed, by all regulatory bodies such as Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District and St. Louis County Health Department holding jurisdiction by virtue of Statutes of the State of Missouri.
All fees and costs connected with such inspections and all costs accruing in the review of the plans and specifications for such improvements shall be paid by the subdivider.
Before the final plat of the subdivision is approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission, the subdivider shall pay to the City of Richmond Heights, as a land subdivision permit fee, the sum of five dollars ($5.00) for each lot appearing on the subdivision plat. In no event shall the fee exceed twenty-five dollars ($25.00) for any one (1) plat. There shall also be paid to the City a sum of money sufficient to cover the cost of recording the plat in the office of the Recorder of Deeds for the County of St. Louis.

When a subdivider can show that a provision of this Chapter would cause unnecessary hardship if strictly adhered to, and when, in the opinion of the Planning and Zoning Commission, because of conditions peculiar to the site a departure may be made without destroying the general intent and spirit of the provision, the Planning and Zoning Commission may recommend a variance or modification to the City Council. The subdivider shall apply in writing for such variance or modification. Any such variance or modification thus recommended shall be entered in writing in the minutes of the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the reasoning on which the departure was justified shall be set forth. Approval of the variance or modification by the City Council shall be by ordinance and may be part of the ordinance approving the final plat of the subdivision. Ordinances approving said subdivision plats may all have the same pre-assigned ordinance number with the specific petition number appended thereto.
Minor Subdivisions. For minor subdivisions, as defined in Section 410.030, the Zoning Administrator may waive the requirements of Sections 410.120 and 410.130 and of Articles IV and V hereof. Such subdivider shall comply with Sections 410.040 and 410.050 and shall record the approved final record plat, at subdivider's expense, in the office of the St. Louis County Recorder of Deeds and shall provide the Zoning Administrator a copy of the recorded plat or the book and page number of said recorded document for the City's files. After completion of construction of the improvements, a set of "as-built" drawings, certified by the developer's engineer, shall be filed with the City's Building Department.
[CC 1984 §26-74; Ord. No. 4294 §1, 10-2-1989]
