For land that slopes 2%, elevations at all breaks in grade, along all drainage channels or swales and at selected points not more than 100 feet apart in all directions shall be shown; for land that slopes more than approximately 2%, contours shall be shown either at an interval of not more than five feet if ground slope is regular and such information is sufficient for planning purposes or at an interval of not more than two feet if necessary because of irregular land or need for more detailed data for preparation of plans and construction drawings.
Subsurface conditions on the tract, if required by the Planning Board: location and results of tests made to ascertain subsurface soil, rock and groundwater conditions; depth to groundwater unless test pits are dry at a depth of five feet; location and results of soil percolation tests if individual sewage disposal systems are proposed.
Other conditions on the tract: watercourses, marshes, rock outcrops, wooded areas, isolated preservable trees, houses, other buildings and other significant features.
Other conditions on adjacent land: approximate direction and gradient of ground slope, including any embankments or retaining walls, character and location of buildings, railroads, power lines, towers and other nearby nonresidential land uses or adverse influences; owners of adjacent unplatted land. For adjacent platted land, subdivision plat shall be referred to by name, recordation date and number, and approximate percent of buildup, typical lot size and dwelling type shall be shown.

The preliminary subdivision plan shall be at a scale of not smaller than 200 feet to the inch (preferred scale: one inch equals 100 feet). It shall show or be accompanied by existing conditions data required above in Subsection A of this section and shall show all proposals, including the following:
Streets: names, right-of-way and roadway widths, approximate grade and gradients.
Other rights-of-way or easements: location, width and purpose.
Location of utilities, if not shown on other exhibits.
Lot lines and lot numbers.
Sites, if any, for multifamily dwellings, shopping centers, churches, industry and other nonpublic uses exclusive of single-family dwellings.
Building setback lines.
Site data, including the number of residential lots, typical lot size and acres in park, etc.
Subdivision name or title (under which to be eventually recorded); also scale, North point, date and the name of the subdivider and designer.
The preliminary layout shall include, when required by the Planning Board, profiles showing existing ground surface and proposed street grades, including extensions for a reasonable distance beyond the limits of the proposed subdivision; typical cross-sections of the proposed grading, roadway and sidewalk as per Illustration No. 1; preliminary designs of any bridges and culverts which may be required; preliminary plan of proposed water mains to connect with existing public water supply or alternative means of water supply approved by the Erie County Health Department; preliminary plan of proposed sanitary sewers (with grades and sizes indicated) connecting with existing sanitary sewerage systems or alternative means of treatment and disposal approved by the Eric County Health Department; preliminary plan for collecting and discharging storm drainage.
Editor's Note: Said illustration is on file in the village offices.
Draft of protective covenants, whereby the subdivider proposes to regulate land use in the subdivision and otherwise protect the proposed development, shall be submitted.
Application for rezoning shall be submitted if such rezoning is necessary. The Planning Board may confirm or make reasonable changes in the land in the plat pursuant to § 7-738 of the Village Law.
Subdivision plats shall be printed as provided by law. The scale shall be 100 feet to the inch or larger. Where necessary, the plat may be on several sheets accompanied by an index sheet showing the entire subdivision. For large subdivisions, the plat may be submitted for approval progressively in contiguous sections satisfactory to the Planning Board. The plat shall show the following:
Primary control points, approved by the engineer, or descriptions and ties to such control points, to which all dimensions, angles, bearings and similar data on the plat shall be referred.
Tract boundary lines, right-of-way lines of streets, easements and other rights-of-way and property lines of residential lots and other sites, with accurate dimensions, bearings or deflection angles and radii, arcs and central angles of all curves.
The name and right-of-way width of each street or other right-of-way.
The location, dimensions and purposes of any easement.
Number or identify each lot or site in sequential order.
The purpose for which sites, other than residential lots, are dedicated or reserved.
The building setback line on all lots and other sites.
The location and description of monuments, lot corner markers and bench marks.
Certification by a registered land surveyor (including the name, address, New York State license number and seal) certifying to accuracy of the survey and plat.
Water supply and sewage disposal arrangements, with details and certification of approval by the Erie County Health Department. Where any water- or sewer line, water plant or sewage treatment plant is to be installed by a developer outside existing districts, the organization or enlargement of a water district and/or a sewer district may be required.
The title, scale, North point and date.
Before final approval of the plat, the following items shall be completed and filed with the Village Clerk:
A statement by the engineer that the subdivider has essentially complied with one of the following alternatives:
All improvements have been installed in accord with the requirements of these regulations; or
A bond or certified check has been posted, which is available to the village and in sufficient amount to assure such completion of all required improvements. Said amount and time of the bond shall be determined by the Planning Board.
