A public hearing of parties in interest and citizens before the Village Board shall be required before any changes or additions to the Official Map are effective. Notice of the public hearing shall be published as a Class 2 notice. Actual notice shall be mailed to the owner of record of lands abutting on the affected portion of the street, highway, or parkway at least 20 days prior to the hearing.

For the purpose of preserving the integrity of the Official Map, a building permit shall be required for any structure or part thereof that shall hereafter be located, erected, moved, reconstructed, extended, enlarged, converted, or structurally altered. No permit shall hereafter be issued for any building in the bed of any existing or proposed street, highway, or parkway shown on the Official Map. No permit for the erection of any building shall be issued unless a street, highway, or parkway giving access to such proposed structure has been duly placed on this map.
The Building Inspector may require each applicant for a building permit to submit a plan, prepared and certified by a registered land surveyor, showing accurately the location of any proposed building with reference to any street, highway, or parkway shown on the Official Map.
No public sewer or other municipal street utility or improvement shall be constructed in any street, highway, or parkway within the corporate limits of the Village until such street, highway, or parkway is duly placed on the Official Map.
