Said plat shall be deemed acceptable for determining yield if its form and layout are deemed to be approvable by the Planning Board. For purposes of this section, two or more parcels of property of the same record ownership may be treated as a single parcel, provided that the several individual parcels lend themselves to joint planning in the public interest. Where any parcel lies in more than one residential zoning district, such division shall not restrict the configuration or location of lots or units created thereon pursuant to this article; provided, however, that the Planning Board shall give due consideration in such cases to the community character, natural resources or other features which the different zoning classifications were intended to foster or protect.
C. 
Dimensional requirements. Simultaneously with the approval of the subdivision plat, the Planning Board shall have the authority to modify the applicable provisions of the Zoning Law to provide an alternative permitted method for the layout, configuration and design of lots, buildings and structures, roads, utility lines and other infrastructure, parks and landscaping, as provided in this section. In its review of the plan, the Planning Board shall determine the arrangement of the dwelling structures upon the site as well as their height, length, spacing, open spaces and landscaping, off-street parking, streets, driveways and all other physical features as shown on the plan or otherwise described.
D. 
Conditions for preservation. The application of this procedure shall result in the preservation of at least 25% of the land on a plat in the reserved area for passive recreational, agricultural, open space, paleontological, archaeological and historic resources. The Planning Board, as a condition of plat approval, may establish such conditions on the ownership and use of such lands as it deems necessary to assure the preservation of such lands for their intended purposes. The open space created by the use of the provisions of this article must be clearly labeled on the subdivision map as to its use and the rights of the owners in the subdivision as well as whether it is to be dedicated ultimately to the Village or otherwise under conditions meeting Planning Board approval. The details as to use and ownership of such open space are further to be set out in a declaration recorded by the owner or other appropriate instrument. Such open space is to be preserved in perpetuity.
E. 
Property owners' association. If the open space or an open space easement therein is not dedicated to the Village or other governmental authority or to an approved private conservation corporation, the applicant must either, simultaneously with the filing of the map, create a property owners' association or a neighborhood corporation embracing all property owners within the map and providing for adequate contributions for the maintenance of such open space or otherwise satisfy the Planning Board with regard to the maintenance of said open space. If a property owners' association is selected by the Planning Board as the method of maintenance of the open space to be preserved, the following must be adhered to:
(1) 
The property owners' association must be set up before the lots are sold.
(2) 
Membership must be mandatory for each lot buyer and any successive buyer or each lot created must be legally required by duly filed covenants and restrictions to pay to the property owners' association a yearly fee to be used for maintenance of the open space.
(3) 
The open space restrictions must be in perpetuity, not just for a given period of years.
(4) 
The association must be responsible for liability insurance, local taxes and the maintenance of recreational and other facilities.
(5) 
Property owners must pay their pro rata share of the cost, and the assessment levied by the association can become a lien on the property.
(6) 
The association must be able to adjust the assessment to meet changed needs.
(7) 
The applicant shall make a conditional offer of dedication binding upon the property owners' association for all open space to be conveyed to the association, such offer to be accepted by the Village, should it so choose, upon the failure of the property owners' association to take title to the open space from the applicant or other current owner or upon the dissolution of the association at any future time.
F. 
Recreational, conservational, agricultural and cultural uses. The Planning Board may approve uses for open space, and these uses will be clearly indicated on the final map. These uses may be as follows:
(1) 
Passive recreational uses, such as wooded park areas, bridle paths, hiking trails, beach areas, etc.
(2) 
Conservational uses, such as open woodland, wetlands, dune areas or farm fields.
(3) 
Cultural or historic preservation, such as historic places, buildings and works of art and archeological or paleontological sites and such open spaces as will assure that each of the above cultural aspects are adequately protected in the public interest.
(4) 
Agricultural uses.
(5) 
Areas used for other purposes, including but not limited to above-ground utility structures, drainage basins and sumps, or areas which are to contain substantial improvements, structures, impervious surfaces and other alterations from the natural state of the land, shall not constitute open space, unless those improvements bear a direct and substantial relationship to a conservational, recreational, cultural, agricultural, historical, or archaeological use or resource whose inclusion within the reserved area is permitted by this subsection.
(6) 
The Planning Board may impose additional restrictions on the use of reserved area beyond those which are stated in this subsection or may impose restrictions which are more specific than the restrictions stated in this subsection.
G. 
The Planning Board may require the installation of screening or landscaping on the reserve area or a landscape maintenance plan in order to lessen the impact of development hereunder on adjacent properties.
A. 
Suitable monuments shall be placed at block corners and other necessary points as may be required by the Planning Board and the location thereof shown on final plats.
B. 
Offers of cession. Before Planning Board approval may be granted on any final plat, formal offers of cession of all streets, highways and parks not marked by notation on the final plat as being retained under private ownership shall be filed with the Board, in a form certified as satisfactory by the Village Attorney, but approval of the plat by the Board shall not constitute an acceptance by the Village of the dedication of any street, highway, park or other public open space.
C. 
Performance bonds. All streets and other public places shown on plats shall be suitably graded and paved; street signs, sidewalks, street lighting standards, curbs, gutters, street trees, water mains, utility lines, storm drains, and other structures shall all be installed in accordance with the standards and specifications set forth in this chapter except as hereinafter provided; or alternatively, a performance bond or other security may be furnished to the Village prior to Planning Board approval. Such performance bond shall be sufficient to cover the full cost of the same, as estimated by the Village department designated by the Planning Board to make such estimate. Any such security must be provided pursuant to a written security agreement with the Village, approved by the Village Board of Trustees and also approved by the Village Attorney as to form, sufficiency and manner of execution, and shall be limited to: a performance bond issued by a bonding or surety company; the deposit of funds in or a certificate of deposit issued by a bank or trust company located and authorized to do business in this state; irrevocable letter of credit from a bank located and authorized to do business in this state, obligations of the United States of America; or any obligations fully guaranteed as to interest and principal by the United States of America, having a market value at least equal to the full cost of such improvements. If not delivered to the Village, such security shall be held in a Village account at a bank or trust company. Such performance bond shall run for a term to be fixed by the Planning board, but in no case for a longer term than three years; provided, however, that the term of the performance bond may be extended by the Planning Board with the consent of the parties thereto. If the Planning Board shall decide at any time during the term of the performance bond that the extent of building development that has taken place in the subdivision is not sufficient to warrant all the improvements covered by such performance bond or that required improvements have been installed as provided in this section and by the Planning Board in sufficient amount to warrant reduction in the face amount of such bond, the Planning Board, upon approval by the Village Board of Trustees, after due notice and public hearing, may modify its requirements for any of all such improvements and the face value of such performance bond shall thereupon be reduced by any appropriate amount so that the new face value will cover the cost in full of the amended list of improvements required by the Planning Board and any security deposited with the bond may be reduced proportionately. In the event that any required improvements have not been installed within the term of the performance bond, the Board of Trustees may thereupon declare the performance bond in default and collect the sum remaining payable thereunder, and upon receipt of the proceeds thereof, the Village shall install such improvements as are covered by such performance bond and commensurate with the building development that has taken place in the subdivision but not exceeding in cost the amount of such proceeds.
D. 
Maintenance bonds. At the time of the acceptance of the dedication of the required public improvements and the release of the performance bond, a surety bond or certified check, made payable to the Village, shall be furnished by the developer to guarantee the workmanship and materials of all public improvements for a period of one year from the date of acceptance by the Village. This bond or certified check shall be in an amount which is 1/3 of the performance bond estimate.
E. 
Parkland. Before the Planning Board may approve a subdivision plat containing residential units, such plat shall show land set aside for park, playground or other recreational purposes, when and if the Planning Board has made a finding that a proper case exists for requiring that a park or parks be suitably located within the Village for park, playground or other recreational purposes. Such findings shall include an evaluation of the present and anticipated future needs for park and recreational facilities within the Village based on projected population growth to which the prospective subdivision plat will contribute.
F. 
Installation of fire alarm devices. The installation of fire alarm devices, including necessary connecting facilities, shall be required or waived pursuant to this section only with the approval of the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Village. The Planning Board may, with the approval of the Board of Fire Commissioners, completely waive any or all requirements in connection with the installation of fire alarm signal devices, including necessary connecting facilities. When required, such installation shall be made in accordance with standards, specifications, and procedures applicable to the Board of Fire Commissioners.

No sample, for whatever purpose taken, should be composed of less than three increments selected at random from the full flow of material which would be required to fill a normal delivery truck, that amount being considered a batch. Test results representing at least three batches sampled in the prescribed manner shall be required to represent each lot under consideration for acceptance and shall be submitted to Village Engineer for his approval. The cost of laboratory testing shall be borne by the contractor.
(2) 
Construction methods.
(a) 
Preparation of the subgrade shall be in accordance with the requirements of Subsection G above.
(b) 
The materials for this item shall be delivered to the job site in a well-mixed unsegregated state.
(c) 
The material shall be spread on the prepared subgrade, using an approved spreader, to a loose depth required to provide the required thickness of the base course when compacted to the specified density. The required thickness shall be 4 1/2 inches, except that the Village Engineer may require the depth to be six inches where the nature of the subgrade may warrant a greater thickness of base course. The individual layer thickness shall not be less than three inches or more than six inches after compaction, as applicable to the required thickness. When the base course is constructed in more than one layer, the previously constructed layers shall be cleaned of loose and foreign matter.
(d) 
The base course shall be compacted to a minimum density of not less than 100% of the maximum density of the material as determined by the Method of Test for Moisture Density Relations of Soil, Using a 10-pound Rammer and an 18-inch Drop, ASTM D-1557.
(e) 
The compaction may be accomplished by any means that will not cause segregation and that will provide a surface that is smooth and within the tolerances of this specification. The material should be damp or moist but not wet during compaction operation to promote densification.
