What is a survey?
A survey is a drawing document prepared by a land surveyor. It indicates all physical improvements on a property including, but not limited to, buildings, driveways, walkways, swimming pools, decks, fences, patios, parking lots, sheds, etc. The survey will also indicate any restrictions, covenants, or easements connected with the property. The survey that is submitted with your application must accurately depict the conditions of the property existing at the time of application submission. The survey must also be drawn to scale and contain the surveyor's information. Many zoning questions cannot be answered unless an accurate survey of the property is presented.
