What is a final plat?

The final plat is drawn by a registered surveyor or engineer. Along with the Homeowners Docs, recent title opinion, release of liens, and other required documents, the final plat is reviewed by City Staff, the City Attorney, and the City Surveyor for compliance with the platting requirements in both the City Code and the Florida Statutes. At this time, the City ensures that either the entire infrastructure is completed or the applicant is willing to post an appropriate performance bond. The Engineering Department completes the final walk though inspection and develops a “punch list” of uncompleted or damaged items that need to be replaced. Our code does allow for a developer to bond the entire infrastructure. Final plats are reviewed by the Development Review Committee (DRC), the Planning and Zoning Board and receive final approval from the City Commission.
