About

Subdivision Identification Marker means a marker placed in the public right-of-way (ROW) intended to identify a residential community or residential development with 50 or more platted single-family residential lots. Subdivision identification markers located within the public ROW must be registered with the Office of the City Engineer.

The construction of new markers and the refurbishment of existing subdivision markers (those located within the public ROW on December 31, 2008) requires a permit.

After Approval

Scheduled, unannounced inspections are conducted.

Conditions & Exceptions
