By reason of a resolution adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Webster on the 13th day of August 1962, pursuant to the provisions of Article 6-A of the Village Law,[1] the Planning Board of the Village of Webster has the power and authority to approve plats of subdivision of land, with or without streets or highways. Such approval, in accordance with the procedures and regulations set forth below, is prerequisite to the recording of all plats of any subdivision of land within the Village of Webster in the office of the Monroe County Clerk.

Editor's Note: Former Article 6-A of the Village Law was repealed by L. 1972, c. 892. See now Article 7 of the Village Law.
To carry out the purposes of the Village Law and the Village Board in providing for such plat approval, these rules and regulations are adopted by the Planning Board, and approved by the Village Board, to provide for the future growth and development of the Village and to afford adequate facilities for the housing, transportation, distribution, comfort, convenience, safety, health and welfare of its population. Consistent with such purposes, these rules and regulations will assure the orderly development of residential areas, the coordination of existing streets and public utilities with new services, the proper provision of open spaces for passive and active recreation and the proper location of future sites for public buildings and shopping areas, all to the mutual benefit to the developer, in providing more stable values, and to the future homeowner, in providing the necessary services at minimum cost and maximum convenience.

A. 
General requirements. The Planning Board must hold a public hearing before the plat of a subdivision receives final approval, thus permitting the plat to be recorded in the Monroe County Clerk's office. The Board shall give final approval to a plat before completion of required improvements only if their installation is assured through an approved performance bond or letter of credit.
B. 
Summary of procedure. The subdivider shall develop the proposed plat and present it for final action by the Board in the following consecutive steps:
(1) 
The subdivider shall present and discuss a rough sketch of the proposed subdivision at an informal meeting with the Board.
(2) 
The subdivider shall present a preliminary plan and other required data for consideration and advice by the Board.
(3) 
The subdivider shall submit a formal application for approval of the final plat upon which the Board will hold its public hearing and thereupon approve, modify and approve, or disapprove such plat.
C. 
Informal meeting and rough sketch. The Board will meet informally with the subdivider to discuss the proposed subdivision and make available to the subdivider its knowledge of development activities and requirements. A written request for such informal meeting shall be filed with the Village Clerk. The Chair of the Planning Board shall give the applicant at least five days' advance notice of the time and place of the informal meeting, which shall take place not later than the second regular meeting of the Board after the filing of the request. The subdivider shall present sketch plans at such informal meeting which shall roughly indicate contours, street and lot locations and future development of the total surrounding area owned or controlled by the subdivider. It is recommended that no detailed engineering work be done until after such informal meeting.
D. 
Preliminary plan. After informal consideration with the Board of the subdivider's rough sketches, the subdivider shall file with the Village Clerk a preliminary plan of the proposed subdivision which shall include all layouts, plans and data and which shall be in the form specified in § 137-9. The Village Clerk shall refer the preliminary plans to the Village Engineer who shall in turn report the Village Engineer's recommendations to the Planning Board. Not later than 30 days after such filing, the Board shall notify the subdivider in writing of any specific changes which may be required in such plan. The Board and subdivider shall then meet to discuss informally such preliminary plan and such specific changes, if any may be required.
E. 
Formal application. The subdivider's formal application for approval of the final plat shall be in writing and submitted to the Board by filing it in triplicate with the Village Clerk. The application shall contain, in the form specified in § 137-10 and in precise detail, all of the data and material specified in said section.
F. 
Public hearing. The Planning Board shall hold a public hearing within 62 days after the receipt of a complete final plat by the Clerk of the Planning Board. Such hearing shall be advertised at least once in a newspaper of general circulation in the Village at least five days before such hearing. The Planning Board may provide that the hearing be further advertised in such manner as it deems most appropriate for full public consideration of such final plat.

G. 
Action of Board.
[Amended 6-9-1994 by L.L. No. 2-1994]
(1) 
The Planning Board shall by resolution conditionally approve, with or without modification, disapprove or grant final approval and authorize the signing of such plat within 62 days after the date of the public hearing. The ground for modification, if any, or the ground for disapproval shall be stated upon the records of the Planning Board.
(2) 
Extension of time. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subsection, the time in which the Planning Board must take action on such plat may be extended by mutual consent of the owner and the Planning Board.
(3) 
Approval by default. In the event that the Planning Board fails to take action on a final plat within the time prescribed herein, or for such extended period established by the mutual consent of the owner and the Planning Board, the plat shall be deemed approved, and a certificate of the Village Clerk as to the date of submission and the failure to take action within such prescribed time shall be issued on demand and shall be sufficient in lieu of written endorsement or other evidence of approval herein required.
(4) 
Conditional approval of final plats.
(a) 
Certification of plat. Upon resolution granting conditional approval of a final plat, the Planning Board shall empower a duly authorized officer to sign the plat subject to completion of any requirements as may be stated in the resolution. Within five days of such resolution, the plat shall be certified by the Clerk of the Planning Board as conditionally approved and a copy filed in such Clerk's office. A copy of the resolution shall be mailed to the owner, which copy shall include a statement of such requirements which when completed will authorize the signing of the conditionally approved final plat.
(b) 
Duration of approval. Upon completion of such requirements, the plat shall be signed by said duly authorized officer of the Planning Board. Conditional approval of a final plat shall expire within 180 days after the date of the resolution granting conditional approval unless such requirements have been certified as completed.
(c) 
Extension of time. Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this subsection, the Planning Board may extend the time in which a conditionally approved plat in final form must be submitted for signature if, in its opinion, such extension is warranted by the particular circumstances thereof, which time shall not exceed additional periods of 90 days each.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I).
(5) 
Approval of plat in sections. In granting conditional or final approval of a plat in final form, the Planning Board may permit the plat to be subdivided and developed in two or more sections and may, in its resolution granting conditional or final approval, state that such requirements as it deems necessary to ensure the orderly development of the plat shall be completed before said sections may be signed by the duly authorized officer of the Planning Board. Conditional or final approval of the sections of a final plat may be granted concurrently with conditional or final approval of the entire plat, subject to any requirements imposed by the Planning Board.
(6) 
In the event of approval, there shall be stated the precise conditions of the approval, including the improvements to be required and the amount of the performance bond or letter of credit which may be furnished in lieu of the complete installation of such improvements. The Planning Board may waive, subject to appropriate conditions and guaranties, for such period as it may determine, the provision of any or all such improvements as, in its judgment of the special circumstances of a particular plat or plats, are not requisite in the interest of public health, safety and general welfare or which, in its judgment, are inappropriate because of inadequacy or lack of connecting facilities adjacent or in proximity to the subdivision.
H. 
Time limit for filing.
[Amended 6-9-1994 by L.L. No. 2-1994[2]]
(1) 
The approval by the Planning Board of a plat showing lots, blocks or sites, with or without streets or highways, or the approval by the Board of the development of a plat already on file in the office of the Monroe County Clerk prior to the appointment of the Village Planning Board and the grant to it of the power to approve plats, or the certificate of the Webster Village Clerk as to the date of submission of such plat or such proposed development and the failure of the Planning Board to take action thereon within 62 days, shall expire 62 days from the date of such approval or of such certificate, unless within such sixty-two-day period such plat or section thereof shall have been duly filed or recorded by the owner in the office of the Monroe County Clerk and the proposed development of such plat has either been completed or a bond therefor posted with the Village Board as provided in Subsection I of this section.

I. 
Performance bond or letter of credit.
(1) 
Any performance bond or letter of credit furnished in lieu of the installation of the required improvements shall be in the amount fixed by resolution of the Planning Board, shall be secured by such deposit of subdivider or issued by such bonding or security company as shall be approved by the Village Board, and shall be approved by the Village Board as to form, sufficiency and manner of execution. The bond or letter of credit shall assure the complete installation of the required improvements within such period, not longer than three years, as shall be fixed by the Planning Board.

(2) 
The Planning Board, with the approval of the Village Board, and upon findings either that the extent of building development that has taken place in the subdivision is not sufficient to warrant all the improvements covered by such bond or that the required improvements have been installed in sufficient amount to warrant reduction in the face amount of such bond, may modify its requirements. Such modification shall not take place until after a public hearing of which notice is published as provided in Subsection F of this section.
(3) 
Except as provided in the preceding Subsection I(2), the bond or letter of credit shall be released only upon complete installation of the required improvements and the submission of the certified as-built drawings as required in § 137-9H.
(4) 
If the required improvements are not completely installed within the period fixed or extended by the Planning Board, the Village Board may declare the performance bond or letter of credit in default and collect the amount payable thereunder. Upon receipt of such amount, the Village shall install such improvements as were covered by the bond and are commensurate with the extent of building development which has taken place in the subdivision, not exceeding in cost the amount collected upon the bond.
J. 
Offers of cession. The subdivider shall tender offers of cession, in a form certified as satisfactory by the Village Attorney, of all land included in streets, highways or parks not specifically reserved by him, but the approval of the plan by the Planning Board shall not constitute an acceptance by the Village of the dedication of any street, highway, park or other public open space.
K. 
Inspection.

(b) 
If easements are used at the rear of lots to provide such facilities, an easement shall be required, having a minimum width of at least 20 feet. (Where lots back up to each other, this would require a ten-foot easement from each lot.)
(3) 
Alleys. Alleys are prohibited in residential developments. In commercial, retail business or industrial districts without expressly designed loading areas, alleys with a minimum width of 25 feet shall be required. Where such alleys dead-end, they shall be provided with a turnaround having an outside roadway diameter of not less than 75 feet.
E. 
Dedication and reservations for public land use.
(1) 
Where a proposed park, playground, school or other public use shown in the Master Plan is located in whole or in part in a subdivision, or where there is a need for such use in the area within which the subdivision is to be located, the Planning Board may require the dedication or reservation of such area within the subdivision in those cases in which the Planning Board deems such requirements to be reasonable.
(2) 
Where deemed essential by the Planning Board, upon consideration of the particular type of development proposed in the subdivision, and especially in large-scale neighborhood unit developments, the Planning Board may require the dedication or reservation of such other areas or sites of a character, extent or location suitable to the needs created by such development for schools, parks and other neighborhood purposes.
