3 Plat Maps

The neighborhood, as visualized by the original developers, can be seen in the plat map that was recorded in the county offices at the time of development. The map lists the owners of the land that made up the plat, shows a plan of the streets and street names, and indicates any structures already standing at the time of platting. The County Recorder can make a copy of the map from the microfilm records, if given the legal address of the house. (Remember that the “legal” address of the residence is not the “street” address.)
