How do I obtain a plat of survey of my property?

The Village does not survey private property or maintain plats of survey, but you can submit a Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA") Request to see if the Village possibly possesses a plat of survey for your property. 

There is a possibility that a plat of survey was given to you when you purchased your property, so you may want to check your own personal files. 

Even if you or the Village has a Plat of Survey for your property in its files it may not be a recent plat of survey and therefore it may not be acceptable to be submitted as part of a zoning application or building permit application.

If a recent plat of survey cannot be found, it may be necessary to call a state-licensed surveyor to undertake a new survey.
