The City has established preliminary plats as part of the subdivision ordinance so standards for the design, development, improvement and existing land uses will be considered. Preliminary plats are also reviewed to ensure adequate provisions are made for public facilities and services to allow growth to occur in an orderly manner consistent with the Comprehensive Plan; and to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare of the citizens of the city.
