Why must I have a plat?
A plat is required so that the City can provide for the safe and orderly development of the City. Plats are reviewed to determine compliance with the Comprehensive Plan, Subdivision Ordinance, and other applicable regulations on land development. The City also determines whether any public improvements, such as streets, drainage, water, or sewer are required prior to development of the land. The City also determines whether any rights-of-way or easements are required. Utility suppliers review plats to determine the adequacy of supplies, distribution lines, and easements to serve the area to be platted.
