The record of survey (ROS) map shall be completed and filed with the Tooele County Surveyor’s Office prior to submitting an application for a preliminary subdivision, planned unit development (PUD) or condominium plat. The filing number of the ROS shall be referenced on the application prior to acceptance by the governing agency. Any application without the filing number reference shall be deemed incomplete.
The ROS map is a document prepared by a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS) licensed by the State of Utah which determines the boundaries of the proposed project and is an expression of his/her professional opinion of the location of the division lines between the subject property or properties and the adjoining properties. The ROS map depicts an existing condition as opposed to a subdivision, PUD or condominium plat that creates new boundaries for future ownerships and as such the ROS map should not show proposed lot lines or future subdivision boundaries.
The ROS map shall be used as a tool by those reviewing the preliminary subdivision, condominium, or PUD plat. Specific items to be addressed on the ROS map in conjunction with the plat submitted for review are as follows:
- The legal descriptions of record for the subject property or properties reproduced and shown on the ROS map along with a reference to a document or documents of record located in the Tooele County Recorder’s Office which indicates the current record title for the subject property or properties and adjoining properties. If multiple parcels are being combined, an aggregate or composite description should be included on the survey.
- Measured and record bearings and distances indicated along the boundaries of the subject property or properties.
- Graphical representation and written narrative that explains and identifies the found monuments, deed/plat elements (written evidence), physical evidence, or other evidence used to determine the width and location of right-of-way lines for adjacent or connecting streets.
- Locate and depict the lines of occupation between the subject property or properties and each of the abutting properties.
- Graphical representation and written narrative that explains and identifies the found monuments, deed/plat elements (written evidence), physical evidence, or other evidence used to control the record boundary location around the perimeter of the subject property or properties.
- The distance and course between two existing Tooele County control monuments with a specific description of each control monument used as the basis of bearings.
- Physical monuments explained and identified as set or recovered at all boundary corners and perimeter angle points of the subject property or properties.
