Understanding Platting Technical Requirements

OnDemand Webinar (85 minutes)

Even though the platting process may vary from state to state several of the same issues with technical requirements apply. Many individuals working with platting requirements may only be familiar with their portion of the review process. This OnDemand Webinar will explore the basic platting design requirements and how each agency involved is a vital part of the entire solution. The program will define many of the commonly used terms and discuss land subdivision and planning, residential planning concepts, subdivision design principles and standards, subdivision surveying and plat preparation and engineering aspects of land subdivision.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe residential design variables and principles.
  • You will be able to define subdivision design principles and standards.
  • You will be able to review subdivision surveying and plat preparation.
  • You will be able to explain engineering aspects of land subdivision.
