[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Grafton as Title 18, Ch. 18.04, of the 1979 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
In order to promote the public health, safety, morals and general welfare; to legally implement and influence the development of the Village; to further the orderly layout and use of land; to facilitate adequate provision for transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks, playgrounds and other public requirements; to lessen congestion in streets and highways; to secure safety from fire, panic and other dangers; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to avoid undue concentration of population; and to facilitate the further resubdivision of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land, it shall be the purpose of this title to regulate and control the subdivision of land within the corporate limits and extraterritorial plat approval jurisdiction of the Village. These regulations are made with reasonable consideration, among other things, of the character of the Village with a view of conserving the value of buildings placed upon land, providing the best possible environment for human habitation, and for encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the Village.
