What is a Preliminary Plat?
For larger or more complex areas, a preliminary plat is required. A preliminary plat is more detailed than a sketch plat and includes information of lots, streets, public utilities, improvements and drainage, as well as a tree survey and mitigation plan. The preliminary plat is generally prepared by a registered Public Surveyor and must include a preliminary iSWMTM site plan, prepared by a registered Professional Engineer. The preliminary plat is reviewed by the City staff, the City Engineer, and all affected public utilities.
