It is the intent of the City Council to establish an official map for a part of the city which is legally described as the NW 1/4 of Sec. 16, SW 1/4 of Sec. 16, all of Sec. 17, T5N, R21E, Milwaukee Co., for the purpose of conserving and promoting the public health, safety, convenience, economy, orderliness and general welfare of the city; to further the orderly layout and use of land; to stabilize the location of real property boundary lines; to ensure proper legal descriptions and proper monumenting of land; to facilitate adequate provision for transportation, parks, playgrounds and stormwater drainage; and to facilitate the further subdivision of larger tracts into small parcels of land.
This chapter is enacted under the authority granted by § 62.23(6), Wis. Stats.
The Official Map shall show the location and width of all platted and existing streets, highways and parkways and the location and extent of parks and playgrounds within that part of the city as legally described in § 58-1 as heretofore laid out, adopted and established by law. There is hereby established, as the Official Map of the city, the map which accompanies and is made a part of this chapter bearing the date of July 10, 1970. This map is hereby designated as the "Official Map of the City of Franklin," and all notations, references and other information shown thereon shall be as much a part of this chapter as though the matters and information thereon were fully described herein.[1]

The Council shall refer any change or addition to the Official Map to the Plan Commission for review and report thereon prior to adoption. The Plan Commission shall report its recommendation to the Council within 60 days.
Changes and additions for the locating, widening or closing or the approval of the locating, widening or closing of streets, highways, parkways, parks or playgrounds by the city under provisions of law other than this chapter shall be deemed to be a change or addition to the Official Map.
