[Amended 6-11-1992 by L.L. No. 4-1992]
A. 
It is intended by this chapter to change or supersede the provisions of § 7-736, Subdivision 2, of the Village Law. The parts of said section hereby changed and superseded are indicated by printing the new matter intended to be added by this article in boldface as follows:
"No permit for the erection of any building shall be issued unless a street or highway giving access to such proposed structure has been duly placed on the Official Map or Plan, or if there be no Official Map or Plan, unless such street or highway is (a) an existing state, county, town or Village highway or (b) a street shown upon a plat approved by the Planning Board as provided under the provisions of this article, as in effect at the time such plat was approved or (c) a street on a plat duly filed and recorded in the office of the county clerk or register prior to the appointment of such Planning Board and the grant to such Board of the power to approve plats; and no permit for the erection of any shall be issued unless all Village taxes which are a lien on and all Village assessments which have been assessed against the real property on which said building is to be erected are first paid in full, together with all interest and other charges. Before such permit shall be issued, said street or highway shall have been suitably improved to the satisfaction of the Planning Board in accordance with standards and specifications approved by the appropriate Village officers as adequate in respect to the public health, safety and general welfare for the special circumstances of the particular street or highway or, alternatively, and in the discretion of such Board, a performance bond sufficient to cover the full cost of such improvement as estimated by such Board or other appropriate Village departments designated by such Board shall be furnished to the Village by the owner. Such performance bond shall be issued by a bonding or surety company approved by the Board of Trustees or by the owner with security acceptable to the Board of Trustees and shall also be approved by the Village Attorney as to form, sufficiency and manner of execution. The term, manner or modification and method of enforcement of such bond shall be determined by the appropriate board in substantial conformity with § 7-730 of this article."
B. 
Except as changed and superseded herein, all other provisions of § 7-736 of the Village Law shall remain in full force and effect.
