Preliminary Plat Process & Information

A preliminary plat is a tentative plat, including supporting data, indicating a proposed subdivision design. The preliminary plat and the review thereof are intended to produce a subdivision design in which all planning factors are recognized and reconciled, prior to submission of the final plat. A preliminary plat is intended to provide the next step in the refinement of the proposed overall project. Preliminary plats often include two or more phases (intended final plats).
