[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of New Glarus 1-18-2000 by Ord. No. 99-14 as Title 13, Ch. 5 of the 2000 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is the intent of the Village Board to establish an Official Map for the purpose of serving and promoting the public health, safety, convenience, economy, orderliness and general welfare of the community; to further the orderly layout and use of land; to stabilize the location of real property boundary lines; to facilitate adequate provision for transportation, parks, playgrounds and stormwater drainage; and to facilitate the further subdivisions of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land.
This chapter is enacted under the authority granted by § 62.23(6), Wis. Stats.
[Amended 10-2-2001 by Ord. No. 01-06]
The Official Map shall show the location and extent of all platted and existing streets, highways, parkways, parks and playgrounds within the corporate limits of the Village of New Glarus as hereinbefore laid out, adopted and established by law. There is hereby established, as the Official Map of the Village of New Glarus, the map updated by Strand and Associates which accompanies and is made a part of this chapter. This map is hereby designated as the Official Map of the Village of New Glarus, 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.
Editor's Note: The Official Map is on file at the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer.
The Village Board may change or add to the Official Map so as to establish the exterior lines of, widen, extend or close any platted, existing, proposed or planned streets, highways, parkways, parks or playgrounds.
The Village Board shall refer any change or addition to the Official Map to the Plan Commission for review, and the Plan Commission shall report its recommendation to the Village Board within 60 days of such reference.
A public hearing of the 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 under Ch. 985, Wis. Stats.
Changes and additions made by duly approved subdivision plats shall not require public hearing if the changes or additions do not affect any land outside the area being platted.
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 within areas defined in the Official Map. Subject to the appeal procedure hereinafter set forth, no permit shall hereafter be issued for any building in the limits of any existing or proposed street, highway or parkway shown on the Official Map. Subject to the appeal procedure hereinafter set forth, 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 until such street, highway or parkway is duly placed on the Official Map.
The Zoning Board of Appeals shall have the power to review any administrative decision of the Village Building Inspector to deny a permit for the erection of a structure under this chapter and to grant relief from the requirements of this chapter under the provision of § 62.23(6)(d), (e), (f), (g) and (h), Wis. Stats.
There shall be a certified copy of the Official Map described in § 60-3. The certified copy shall be kept in the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer and shall be available for inspection by any interested person during regular office hours. The certified copy shall bear on its face a certification that it is a true copy of the Official Map described in and accompanying this chapter and shall show the date of adoption of this chapter and shall be signed by the Village President and countersigned by the Village Clerk-Treasurer. Thereafter no change or addition to such Official Map shall become effective until it shall have been indicated by the appropriate convention on the aforesaid certified copy of the Official Map and a certificate placed thereon or attached thereto, bearing the number and date of adoption of the amending resolution. The certificate shall be signed by the Village President and countersigned by the Village Clerk-Treasurer. For purposes of this section, plats, certified survey maps and property transactions complying with applicable laws and ordinances do not require certification when being placed on the Official Map.
The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall be responsible immediately upon adoption of the Official Map or any amendment thereto for recording a true copy thereof with the Register of Deeds for Green County, Wisconsin.
The placing of any street, highway, parkway, park or playground line or lines upon the Official Map does not constitute the opening or establishment of any street, highway, parkway, park or playground or the taking or acceptance of any land for these purposes.
It shall be the duty of the Village Building Inspector to enforce the provisions of this chapter.
