Section 8.01. PURPOSE. The purpose of this chapter is to promote the public health, safety, morals and general welfare of the Village of River Hills. These regulations are designed to lessen congestion on the streets and highways; to further the orderly layout and use of land; to secure safety from fire, panic and other danger; to provide adequate light and air; to prevent the overcrowding of land; to avoid undue concentration of population; to facilitate adequate provision for transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks, playgrounds, and other public requirements; and to facilitate the further resubdivision of larger tracts into smaller parcels of land. These regulations are made with reasonable consideration, among other things, of the character of the Village with a view to conserving the value of the buildings placed upon land, for providing the best possible environment for human habitation, and for encouraging the most appropriate use of land throughout the Village.
