Why must my property be platted?
The platting process allows the City to determine whether the property is being developed in an orderly manner, according to applicable regulations, and that necessary public improvements are provided. Platting also provides an opportunity for public utilities to obtain necessary easements for the extension of service. The developer (or land owner) is responsible for providing certain onsite public improvements.
