Step 1. A record map (final plat) is submitted by the applicant to the Planning Department staff via Accela Citizen Access. The map shows exact lot dimensions, street and sewer right-of-way locations, public storm drainage easements and specific information used in deed and title work.
Step 2. Planning Department staff loops in the City or County Stormwater Department for approval.
Step 3. The Stormwater Engineer approves his/her review.
Step 4. The Planning Department staff grants official approval to record the map and electronically notifies the applicant.
Step 5. If the property lies within the City limits, the applicant takes the map to the Register of Deeds office, where the approved map is recorded. When the property falls under County jurisdiction, the applicant takes the map to the local N.C. Department of Transportation district engineering office for approval. Then the map is brought to the Register of Deeds office to be recorded.
Reminder: Plats can be submitted for electronic signature, 24/7. Subdivision staff is utilizing the e-signature process(PDF, 97KB) approved by Mecklenburg County Register of Deeds. Plats to be e-signed and recorded must be sent via DocuSign, DocVerify or another approved platform.
At this point the lots in question are considered to be in accordance with the applicable subdivision ordinance. Building permits may be issued at this point.
