A. 
The Planning and Zoning Commission shall recommend and the Board of Aldermen may by ordinance adopt regulations governing the subdivision of land within its jurisdiction, the regulation, in addition to the requirements provided by law for the approval of plats, may provide requirements for the coordinated development of the City; for the coordination of streets within subdivisions with other existing or planned streets or with features of the City Plan or Official City Map; for adequate open spaces for traffic and recreation, light and air, and for a distribution of population and traffic.
B. 
The regulation may include requirements as to the extent and manner in which the streets of the subdivision or any designated portions thereof shall be graded and improved, as well as including requirements as to the extent and manner of the installation of all utility facilities, and compliance with all of these requirements is a condition precedent to the approval of the plat. The regulations or practice of the Board of Aldermen may provide for tentative approval of the plat previous to the improvements and installations; but any tentative approval shall not be entered on the plat. The regulations may provide that, in lieu of the completion of the work and installation previous to the final approval of a plat, the Board of Aldermen may accept a bond in an amount and with surety and conditions satisfactory to it, providing for and securing the actual construction and installation of the improvements and utilities within a period specified by the Board of Aldermen and expressed in the bond; and the Board of Aldermen may enforce the bond by all appropriate legal and equitable remedies. The regulations may provide, in lieu of the completion of the work and installations previous to the final approval of the plat, for an assessment or other method whereby the Board of Aldermen is put in an assured position to do the work and make the installations at the cost of the owners of the property within the subdivision. The regulations may provide for the dedication, reservation, or acquisition of lands and open spaces necessary for public uses indicated on the City Plan and for the appropriate means of providing for the compensation, including reasonable charges against the subdivision, if any, and over a period of time and in a manner as is in the public interest.
C.

Within sixty (60) days after the submission of a plat to the Commission, the Commission shall approve or disapprove the plat; otherwise the plat is deemed approved by the Commission, except that the Commission, with the consent of the applicant for approval, may extend the sixty-day period. The ground of disapproval of any plat by the Commission shall be made a matter of record.
[R.O. 2012 § 405.160; Ord. No. 5 § 16, 9-12-1973]

Any person violating the provisions of this Section shall forfeit and pay to the City a penalty of not to exceed three hundred dollars ($300.00) for each lot transferred or sold, or agreed, or negotiated to be sold; and the description by metes and bounds in the instrument of transfer or other document used in the process of selling or transferring shall not exempt the transaction from this penalty. The City may enjoin or vacate the transfer or sale by legal action, and may recover the penalty in such action.
[R.O. 2012 § 405.190; Ord. No. 5 § 19, 9-12-1973; Ord. No. 150, 4-20-1993]

The Board of Aldermen may locate and construct or may accept any other street if the ordinance or other measure for the location and construction or for the acceptance is first submitted to the Commission for its approval and approved by the Commission or, if disapproved by the Commission, is passed by the affirmative vote of not less than two thirds (2/3) of the entire membership of the Board of Aldermen.

When a plan for proposed major streets or other public improvements has been adopted, the council is authorized to prohibit any new building being located within the proposed site or right-of-way when the centerline of the proposed street or the limits of the proposed sites have been carefully determined and are accurately delineated on maps approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and adopted by the Board of Aldermen. The Board of Aldermen shall provide for the method by which this Section shall be administered and enforced and may provide for a Board of Adjustment with powers to modify or vary the regulations in specific cases, in order that unwarranted hardship, which constitutes an unreasonable deprivation of use as distinguished from the mere grant of a privilege, may be avoided. The personnel, length of terms, method of appointment and organization of the Board of Adjustment for the building line regulations shall be the same as now provided for the City Board of Zoning Adjustment. The regulations of this Section shall not be adopted, changed or amended until a public hearing has been held as provided in Section 420.090.
