The subdivider shall submit six (6) black line or blue line prints of the preliminary plan of the proposed subdivision prepared by a registered Missouri land surveyor. The subdivider shall also submit an application, in writing, with the filing fee as required by the Planning and Zoning Commission. The horizontal scale of the preliminary plan shall be one (1) inch to fifty (50) feet or one (1) inch to one hundred (100) feet. The horizontal scale of the plans portion of the plans and profiles shall be one (1) inch equals twenty (20), forty (40) or fifty (50) feet.

All applications and plans shall be submitted to the Zoning Administrator of the City.
The preliminary plan shall show:
The location of present property lines, streets, buildings, watercourses, tree masses and other existing features within the area to be subdivided and similar information regarding existing conditions of land immediately adjacent thereto;

Existing sanitary and storm sewers, water mains, culverts and other underground structures within the tract or immediately adjacent thereto. The location and size of the nearest water main and sewer or outlet are to be indicated in a general way upon the plan;
The title under which the proposed subdivision is to be recorded and the name of the subdivider platting the tract and the name and registration number of the surveyor preparing the plat;
The names and adjoining boundaries of all adjoining subdivisions and the names of recorded owners of any adjoining parcels of unsubdivided land;

If the developer intends to subdivide any portion of the parcel into a multiple-dwelling unit subdivision, then the preliminary plan shall, in addition, include the following data:
Preliminary plans which do not contain all of the above information will not be approved.
After the preliminary plan has been approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission, it shall be submitted to the City Council for its approval or disapproval. Approval of the preliminary plan by the City Council does not constitute an acceptance or approval of the subdivision plat. One (1) copy of the approved plan shall be retained in the office of the City Clerk. One (1) signed copy will be given to the subdivider.
[CC 2001 §16.12.020; Ord. No. Z-3-90F §1, 9-11-1997; Attachment §405.030(B), 9-11-1997]
The subdivider shall submit preliminary plans in accordance with the specifications of Section 410.040 "Preliminary Plan Requirements". A preliminary plan shall first be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission for approval. After the preliminary plans are approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission in accordance with this Section, such preliminary plans shall be submitted to the City Council for its approval or disapproval.
Upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission, the City Council may waive the requirements for the submission of detailed final plats or plans for minor subdivisions and resubdivisions of no more than two (2) lots of record. In such case, however, the subdivider will be required to submit a survey plat including, at a minimum, the metes and bounds of the proposed subdivision which accurately depicts the subdivision intended and the lots therein. The City Council may also require any additional information it deems necessary to be included on the survey plat submitted.
Not less than thirty (30) days before preparing and submitting the preliminary plans to the Planning and Zoning Commission, the developer or his or her engineer shall consult with the Planning and Zoning Commission, while the plan is in sketch form, to ascertain the location of proposed highways, primary or secondary thoroughfares, collector streets, parkways, parks, playgrounds, school sites and other community facilities or planned developments and to acquaint himself or herself with the Commission's requirements. The pre-application time period may be reduced by the Commission at their discretion. During pre-application proceedings, the general features of the subdivision, its layout, facilities and required improvements shall be determined to the extent necessary for preparation of the preliminary plan. Pre-application proceedings shall be properly documented by minutes of conferences and memoranda, as may be necessary, and copies of such documentation shall be furnished to the developer.
The subdivider shall submit preliminary plans in accordance with the specification of Section 410.040 "Preliminary Plan Requirements" at least two (2) weeks prior to the meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission at which action is desired. The preliminary plan shall be checked by the Planning and Zoning Commission as to its conformity to the Comprehensive Plan and as to the plan's compliance with the standards, requirements and principles hereinafter prescribed; and the Planning and Zoning Commission shall ascertain compliance with all applicable additional requirements of municipal, County, State and Federal departments and agencies concerned with applicable regulation of subdivisions or public utility companies.
Following approval of the preliminary plan, the subdivider shall:
Install the minimum improvements;
Furnish a bond to cover the cost of the improvements; or
Provide for an assessment guaranteeing such installations in accordance with Article IV "Improvements" of this Chapter. Upon approval of improvement installations or arrangement therefor, the final plat shall be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council in accordance with the provisions of this Article, Part 2 "Final Plats".

In addition to all of the standard requirements for a preliminary plan as indicated in Sections 410.030 through 410.050, the altered or additional requirements contained below will be required as a part of the final plat unless specifically wavered by the City Council upon the recommendation of the Planning and Zoning Commission. (Refer to Article IV "Improvements" of this Chapter for minimum improvements required prior to filing of final plat.)

For final plat approval the subdivider shall submit to the City Council:
The final plat on reproducible positive and five (5) blueprint or black line copies of the final plat, together with copies of any deed restrictions where such restrictions are too lengthy to be shown on the plat;
Six (6) certified copies of the improvement plans containing all profiles and specifications, certified by a professional engineer registered in the State of Missouri;

The final plat is to be drawn at a scale of not more than one hundred (100) feet to the inch from an accurate survey and on one (1) or more sheets whose maximum dimensions are eighteen (18) inches by twenty-four (24) inches. In certain unusual instances where the subdivided area is of unusual size or shape, the Administrative Officer may permit a variation in the scale or size or shape of the record plat. If more than two (2) sheets are required, an index sheet of the same dimensions shall be filed showing the entire subdivision on one (1) sheet and the areas shown on the other sheets. The final plat shall show and be accompanied by the following information:
The boundary lines of the area being subdivided with accurate distances and bearings;
The lines of all proposed streets, their widths and names and the lines of all alleys;
The lines of all adjoining property and the lines of adjoining streets and alleys with their widths and names;
All lot lines together with an identification system for all lots and blocks;
The location of all building lines and easements provided for public use, services or utilities;
All dimensions, both linear and angular, necessary for locating the boundaries of the subdivision, lots, streets, alleys, easements and any other area for public or private use. Linear dimensions are to be given to at least the nearest one-tenth (1/10) of a foot;

The name of the subdivision, the scale of the plat, a north arrow and a statement as to the method used to determine north;
The certificate of the surveyor attesting to the accuracy of the survey and the correct location of all monuments shown;
Private restrictions and their periods of existence. Should these restrictions be of such length to make their lettering on the plat impracticable and thus necessitate the preparation of a separate instrument, reference to such instrument shall be made on the plat;
Notarized certification by the owner of the plat and restrictions, including dedication to public use of all streets, alleys, parks or other open spaces shown thereon and the granting of easements required; and
Certification of approval for endorsement by the City Council.
