After the preliminary plat has been approved by the Planning Commission, it shall be submitted to the City Board of Aldermen for its approval or disapproval. Approval of the preliminary plat by the Board of Aldermen does not constitute an acceptance or approval of the subdivision plat. One (1) copy of the approved preliminary plat, signed by the Mayor, shall be retained in the office of the City Clerk. One (1) signed copy will be given to the subdivider.
[R.O. 2011 §405.100; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]
A. 
Receipt of the signed copy of the preliminary plat is authorization for the subdivider to proceed with the preparation of the plans and specifications for the following minimum improvements and with the preparation of the final plat. Prior to the construction of any improvements required or to the submission of a bond in lieu thereon or to the provision for any assessment for such construction, the subdivider shall furnish the City Engineer all plans, information and data necessary to determine the character of said improvements. These plans shall be examined by the City Engineer and will be approved, if in accordance with the requirements of this Section. Following this approval, construction can be started or the amount of a bond determined or an assessment provided for.

3. 
The subdivider files with the Board of Aldermen a surety bond, cashier's check or certified check conditioned to secure the construction of improvements listed below in a satisfactory manner and within a period specified by the Board of Aldermen, such period not to exceed two (2) years.

Should conditions prohibit the placing of monuments on the line, off-set marking will be permitted; provided however, that exact off-set courses and distances are shown on the subdivision plat.
B. 
A permanent bench mark shall be accessibly placed and accurately noted on the subdivision plat, the elevation of such bench mark to be based on the U.S.G.S. data.
[R.O. 2011 §405.120; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]
A. 
Where alleys are not provided, easements for utilities shall be provided. Such easements shall have a minimum width of fifteen (15) feet and where located along interior lot lines, one-half (½) the width shall be taken from each lot. Before determining the location of easements, the plan shall be discussed with the local utility companies to assure the proper placing for the installation of services. For hillside areas where a cut or fill slope extends beyond the right-of-way of a street, a slope easement shall be provided of sufficient width to permit necessary maintenance of the slope.
B. 
Whenever a subdivision is traversed by a watercourse, drainageway, channel or stream, there shall be provided a drainage easement which shall be for the purpose of widening, improving or protecting the stream. The width of the drainage easement shall be adequate for any necessary channel relocations and straightening and shall be reviewed by the City Engineer and shall relate as closely as possible to the requirements of the Comprehensive Plan.

B. 
The natural topography shall be retained wherever possible in order to reduce excessive runoff onto adjoining property and to avoid extensive regrading of the site.
C. 
Floor elevations of all buildings shall be carefully studied in relation to existing topography, proposed street grades, existing twelve (12) inch and over caliper trees, and other pertinent site features.
D. 
Consideration shall be given to varying the setback line required in the zoning district where the subdivision is proposed in order to retain, wherever possible, existing topography, rock formations and large trees.
E. 
The Commission shall consider withholding approval where there is a question as to the suitability of a lot or lots for their intended use due to factors such as rock formations, flood conditions or similar circumstances.
[R.O. 2011 §405.140; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]

[R.O. 2011 §405.160; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]
Curbs and gutters shall be constructed at the developer's cost in conjunction with the street development on all streets new and existing and shall be of Portland cement concrete at least eighteen (18) inches wide and not less than six (6) inches thick where the curb abuts the street surface.

When an existing street does not meet the design and construction requirements as provided in Section 405.080, the subdivider may request a waiver of the requirement of curbs and gutters on an existing street at the same time that a preliminary plan is filed with the Planning Commission as required in Section 405.040. The Planning Commission shall then review the request and if it determines that the existing street in fact does not meet standards as provided herein, the Commission may recommend to the Board of Aldermen that a waiver of curb and gutter be granted. The Board of Aldermen shall review the request and may grant said waiver.
[R.O. 2011 §405.180; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]

Each lot within the subdivided area shall be provided with a connection to a public sanitary sewer unless the public sewer trunk line does not abut any of the lots within the subdivision. All connections and the subdivision sewer system shall comply with regulations of the State Board of Health and shall be approved by the City Engineer. When a public sewer system is not accessible, proper provisions shall be made for the disposal of sanitary wastes as approved by the State Board of Health. However, subdivider shall pay for in advance on final approval of plat and dedication the cost of all sewer line engineering and further shall pay in advance for all sewer line material including manhole material and any blasting or rock hammer for rock removal.

A. 
Adequate surface and subsurface drainageways for the removal of storm water shall be provided by the subdivider. The extent to which storm drainage facilities shall be required shall be based upon an analysis of need prepared for the subdivider by a Missouri registered professional engineer. The computing storm water runoff, using the one (1) hour rainfall, is to be computed at a ten (10) year frequency. Times of concentration, soil infiltration rates, and other variable factors to be used in the analysis shall be discussed with and approved by the City Engineer of the City of Cabool during the preliminary consideration of the subdivision.
B. 
A storm sewer system, which shall be separate and independent of the sanitary sewer system, with surface inlets, shall be provided by the subdivider in all cases where curb and gutter is to be installed and whenever the available evidence indicates that such a system is necessary due to the inadequacy of the natural surface drainage.
C. 
Distance From Streams Or Main Drainage Channels. Any person proposing to locate a structure or a use within one hundred (100) feet of any stream or main drainage channel shall include a statement by a Missouri registered professional engineer, based on a study of the watershed area and the probable runoff, that the structure or use in the location proposed will leave adequate space for the flow of floodwater; provided however, that no building shall be permitted within fifty (50) feet of the top of the bank of any stream or main drainage channel.
[R.O. 2011 §405.210; Ord. No. 770 §1, 2-4-2002]
Concrete sidewalks shall be constructed along at least one (1) side of every minor street shown on the plat in accordance with applicable standard specifications of the City, and concrete sidewalks shall be constructed along both sides of all major streets; provided however, that where the property is platted in lots having an area of seven thousand five hundred (7,500) square feet or more and a width of eighty-five (85) feet or more, the Board of Aldermen may waive this requirement. If for any reason sidewalks are not provided, the street grade shall be completed so that additional grading would not be necessary for any future installation of sidewalks.
