Whenever the county planning commission has prepared and the county commission adopted,
recorded and filed certified copies of any part of the official master plan relating
to major highways or to subdivision regulations, thereafter no plat of a subdivision
of land within the unincorporated area of the county or the portion thereof covered
by the major highway plan shall be recorded until the plat shall first have been approved
by the county planning commission. If the planning commission does not report upon the plat within thirty days, it
may then be deemed approved by the county planning commission, and the commission
shall certify the fact upon the plat. If the plat is approved by the county planning commission, the approval shall be
endorsed in writing thereon. However, if the plat be amended or rejected by the county planning commission, or
if the council or board of trustees of any municipality files with the county planning
commission a certified copy of a resolution of the council or board protesting against
the action of the county planning commission approving any plat of any land lying
within one and one-half miles of the limits of the incorporated area of the municipality,
the approval shall be deemed overruled, and the plat may be then approved only by
a two-thirds vote of the county commission, and the reasons for the approval or failure
to approve the plat shall be spread upon the records of the county commission and
1 certified to the county planning commission. No plat of subdivision of land in the unincorporated areas of the county shall be
recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds unless and until approved as herein
provided. Municipalities shall have power, by ordinance, to require plats of subdivisions
of land within the corporate limits of the municipalities to be submitted to the county
planning commission before being submitted to the municipality for approval, and before
being recorded. A certified copy of any such ordinance shall be filed in the office of the recorder
of deeds for the county. The county planning commission shall, upon written request of any municipality,
consider the plats and shall report its findings and its recommendations thereon in
writing to the proper officials of the municipality.
