Minor revisions to an approved preliminary subdivision plan that reflect the same basic street and lot configurations as used for the original approval may be approved by the Planning and Development Officer. b. Any request for a revision to an approved preliminary subdivision plan that increases the number of building lots, decreases the amount of common open space or alters a road pattern shall be initiated and processed as a new application for preliminary subdivision plan approval. 7. Phasing a. If not otherwise set out as part of the preliminary subdivision plan, lots may be recorded and public improvements may be constructed in phases. b. The Planning and Development Officer shall ensure that the phasing plan is in accordance with the approved preliminary subdivision plan, this UDO, resolutions of the City Council, and conditions of approval. c. The phasing plan shall indicate timing of the construction of public improvements in such a way that the number of lots in each phase is reasonably proportional to the amount of development-related improvements in each phase and that rights-of-way and utility easements are extended in the initial phase of development to all adjacent lots that do not have public street access or access to public utilities. d. The number of dwelling units in recorded phases complies with the density requirements of this UDO. e. In the recorded phase, all setbacks, neighborhood transition zones, transitional protective yards and other special yard areas are met. f. In the recorded phase, off-street parking requirements for the developed portion are observed. g. In the recorded phase, the amount of required open space is proportionate to the percentage of land being recorded. h. The recorded phase conforms to all of the requirements for a legal lot. i. Unrecorded phases may contain inappropriate densities, setbacks, off- street parking spaces and required open space, provided any such phase at the time of its recordation is combined with other recorded phases of the development so that the combined properties together conform to the density, setback, off-street parking and open space requirements of this UDO. j. Any residual portion of development complies with the requirements of a legal lot, including its authorization as a subdivided lot and the following: i. Total acres (gross) recorded; ii. Total acres of right-of-way approved; iii. Total acres of right-of-way dedicated; iv. Total acres (net) approved; v. Total acres (net) recorded; vi. Total acres of open space approved; and vii. Total acres of open space recorded. k. Amendments to the phasing plan may be made in conjunction with the review of construction plans, but an updated copy of the new phasing plan must be submitted and placed in the case file maintained by the Planning and Development Officer. If the extent of the amendments has an impact on more than one phase, then a revised preliminary plan will be required. 8. Sunsetting of a Preliminary Subdivision Plan a. Within 3 years after approval of the preliminary subdivision plan, at least ½ of the gross land area shown on the preliminary subdivision plan must have a final subdivision plat recorded in the local register of deeds office where the property is located and all remaining portions of the preliminary subdivision plan shall have the final subdivision plat recorded in the local register of deeds office where the property is located within five years from the approval date of the preliminary subdivision plan. b.
