The arrange­ment, char­ac­ter, extent, width and loca­tion of all streets shall be con­sid­ered in their rela­tion to exist­ing and planned streets, to rea­son­able cir­cu­la­tion of traf­fic, to topo­graph­ic con­di­tions, to runoff of storm water, to pub­lic con­ve­nience and safe­ty, and in their appro­pri­ate rela­tion to the pro­posed uses of the land to be served by such streets. Wher­ev­er pos­si­ble and nec­es­sary, the arrange­ment of streets in new sub­di­vi­sions shall pro­vide for the con­tin­u­a­tion of exist­ing streets in adjoin­ing areas. Where adjoin­ing unsub­di­vid­ed areas may be sub­di­vid­ed, the arrange­ment of streets in a new sub­di­vi­sion shall make pro­vi­sion for the prop­er pro­jec­tion of streets into adjoin­ing areas by car­ry­ing the new streets to the bound­aries of the new sub­di­vi­sion at appro­pri­ate loca­tions. No build­ing shall be allowed in areas with­in a pro­ject­ed street con­tin­u­a­tion. In no case shall land be sub­di­vid­ed in such a man­ner that adjoin­ing prop­er­ty be denied access.

(A) Exten­sions of Streets.  Where sub­di­vi­sion streets or rights‑of‑way are con­tin­u­a­tions or exten­sions of exist­ing streets or rights‑of‑way, the width there­of shall be of the same or greater width as the exist­ing street or right‑of‑way except that in no case shall the street or right‑of‑way in the sub­di­vi­sion be of less width than the min­i­mum as pro­vid­ed here­in.  Ded­i­ca­tion of half or por­tions of a street shall be dis­cour­aged, but may be per­mit­ted when­ev­er there is no oth­er log­i­cal method of plat­ting.  Reserve strips, of any type, shall not be allowed.

(B) Fre­quen­cy of Street Access.  Land access roads and pri­vate dri­ves onto a town­ship road, coun­ty road or state high­way shall not be clos­er than one‑eighth (1/8) mile (660 feet).
