§ 47-114. Subdivision regulations
A. Before the commission may exercise jurisdiction over subdivision of land, it shall adopt regulations governing the subdivision of land within its jurisdiction. The regulations may provide for the proper arrangement of streets in relation to other existing or planned streets and to the master plan, for adequate and convenient open spaces for traffic, utilities, access of firefighting apparatus, recreation, light and air, or for the avoidance of congestion of population, including minimum width and area of lots.
B. The regulations on subdivision of land may include provisions as to the extent to which streets and other ways shall be graded and improved and to which water and sewer and other utility mains, piping or other facilities shall be installed as a condition precedent to the approval of the plat. The regulations or practice of the commission may provide for a tentative approval of the plat previous to such installation; but any such tentative approval shall be revocable for failure to comply with commitments on which the tentative approval was based, and shall not be entered on the plat. In lieu of the completion of any improvements and utilities prior to the final approval of the plat, the commission may accept an adequate bond satisfactory to the commission, with surety, to secure to the municipality the actual construction and installation of the improvements or utilities at a time and according to specifications fixed by or in accordance with the regulations of the commission, and further conditioned that the developer will pay for all material and labor entering into the construction of the improvements. The municipality is hereby granted the power to enforce such bond by all appropriate legal and equitable remedies.
C. Nothing in this section shall be construed as granting to any municipality or city planning commission the power to direct any public utility to extend its services to any particular area.
D. All regulations governing the subdivision of land shall be published as provided by law for the publication of ordinances, and before adoption, a public hearing shall be held thereon.
