Title 11 . Natural Resources
Chapter 53 . (No Regulations Filed)
Section 220. Preliminary plat standards

11 AAC 53.220. Preliminary plat standards

In specific instances, the director may require or waive the requirement for a preliminary plat. The purpose of the preliminary plat is to afford an opportunity to receive preliminary review of an intended survey and prevent unnecessary expenditure of money and time that would occur if major changes were required after final platting. Conditional approval of the preliminary plat does not constitute approval of the final plat. Rather, it is an expression of approval as a guide to preparation of the final plat. The following are minimum standards for the preliminary plat:

(1) The format of the preliminary plat must comply with the general plat standards as set forth in sec. 210 of this chapter.

(2) A property description of the location, including latitude and longitude to an accuracy commensurate with the class of survey, must be shown at one monumented corner of the survey; the total acres of the area to be surveyed must be shown.

(3) The name and address of occupant or applicant must be shown.

(4) If the preliminary plat is prepared by a land surveyor, the surveyor's seal must be properly affixed and signed.

(5) As applicable, the locations of fill material, existing permanent buildings or other structures within the parcel, existing utility lines, mean high and mean low tide lines, and other permanent features, such as section lines and municipal or corporation boundaries within the parcel, must be shown on the plat. All roads inside or within 200 feet of the parcel also must be shown. The director may require that the approximate grades of roads, general topography, preliminary lot configuration, and the proposed location of common areas be shown.

(6) The names of adjacent owners or claimants, or an indication that the land is not owned or claimed, adjacent U.S. surveys, private surveys or subdivisions, and Alaska state land surveys must be shown.

(7) The original or a good quality reproducible of the preliminary plat must be submitted to the division for review, with five blackline or blueline prints.

(8) Applicable certification as required by sec. 210(16) and (17) of this chapter must be shown, but should not be signed or notarized.
