17 Chapter 12 Legal Descriptions and Site Plan Requirements Sacramento City College EDT 300/ENGR 306 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 17

18 Legal Descriptions Virtually every piece of property in the United States is described for legal purposes. Descriptions are referred to as legal descriptions. 18 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

19 Legal Descriptions Every legal description is unique and cannot be confused with any other property. Legal descriptions of properties are filed in local jurisdictions, County or All other 49 states. Parish courthouses. Louisiana. 19 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

20 Legal Descriptions Legal descriptions are public records and may be reviewed at any time. Legal descriptions are usually kept at the local government office City County State Federal 20 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

21 Site EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 21

22 Legal Descriptions-Site A site is An area of land Generally one plot or construction lot in size. The term site is synonymous (means the same) with plot and lot. 22 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

23 23 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

24 24 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

25 Legal Descriptions-Site A plat is a map of part of a city or township showing some specific area, such as a subdivision made up of several individual lots. There are usually many sites or plots in a plat. 25 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

26 26 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

27 Legal Descriptions-Site There are three basic types of legal descriptions: 1. metes and bounds 2. rectangular survey system 3. lot and block. 27 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

28 Metes and Bounds System EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 28

29 Metes and Bounds System Metes, or measurements, and bounds, or boundaries, may be used to identify the perimeters of any property. This is referred to as the metes and bounds system. 29 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

30 Metes and Bounds System The metes are measured in Feet Yards Rods (rd) Surveyor's chains (ch). There are 3 feet in 1 yard 5.5 yards or 16.5 feet in one rod 66 feet' in one surveyor's chain. 30 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

31 Metes and Bounds System The boundaries may be A street A fence A river. 31 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

32 Metes and Bounds System Boundaries are also established as bearings. Bearings are directions with reference to one quadrant of the compass. There are 360 O in a circle or compass. Each quadrant has EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

33 Metes and Bounds System Degrees are divided into minutes and seconds. There are 60 minutes (60') in 1 0 (degree) and 60 seconds (60") in 1 (minute). 33 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

34 Metes and Bounds System Bearings are measured clockwise or counterclockwise from north or south. For example, a reading 45 0 from north to west is labeled N 45 0 W. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

35 Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

36 Metes and Bounds System If a bearing reading requires great accuracy, fractions of a degree are used. For example, S 30 O 20' 10" E Reads: from south 30 degrees 20 minutes 10 seconds to east. 36 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

37 Metes and Bounds System The metes and bounds land survey begins with a monument, known as the point-of-beginning (POB). This point is a fixed location. Can be: A pile of rocks A large tree, or An iron rod driven into the ground. Other fixed locations. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

38 Figure 12.2 Beginning at a point 1200' north ' west from the southeast corner of the Asa Stone Donation Land Claim No. 49, thence north ' west 1026' to a pipe, thence south ' west 442' chains to center of road, thence south ' east 1145', thence north 48 O 30' east 778.8' to place of beginning. 38 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

39 Typical Metes/Bounds Description Beginning at a point 1200' north ' west from the southeast corner of the Asa Stone Donation Land Claim No. 49, thence north ' west 1026' to a pipe, thence south ' west 442' chains to center of road, thence south ' east 1145', thence north 48 O 30' east 778.8' to place of beginning. 39 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

40 Rectangular Survey System EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 40

41 Rectangular Survey System The United States has been surveyed Starting with the western boundary of Ohio to the Pacific Ocean, and including some southeastern states were described as public land states. 41 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

42 Rectangular Survey System Within this area the U.S. Bureau of Land Management devised a system for describing land known as the rectangular survey system. Parallels of latitude East/West Meridians of longitude North/South were used to establish areas known as great land surveys. 42 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

43 Rectangular Survey System Lines of latitude are imaginary parallel lines running east and west. Are also called parallels, Lines of longitude are imaginary lines running north and south. Are also called meridians. 43 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

44 44 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

45 45 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

46 46 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

47 47 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

48 Rectangular Survey System The point of beginning of each great land survey is where two basic reference lines cross. The lines of latitude, or parallels, are termed the baselines. The lines of longitude, or meridians, are called principal meridians. 48 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

49 49 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

50 50 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

51 Rectangular Survey System There are 31 sets of Baselines Principal Meridians in the continental United States. There are 3 in Alaska. 51 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

52 Rectangular Survey System At the beginning, the principal meridians were numbered. The numbering system ended with the sixth principal meridian passing through Nebraska, Kansas, and Oklahoma. 52 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

53 53 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

54 Rectangular Survey System The remaining principal meridians were given local names. Willamette Mt. Diablo San Bernardino The meridian through one of the last great land surveys near the West Coast is named the Willamette Meridian because of its location in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

55 55 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

56 Townships The great land surveys were broken down into smaller surveys known as townships and sections. The baselines and meridians were divided into blocks called townships. Each township measures 6 miles square. 56 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

57 Townships The townships are numbered by tiers running north-south. The tier numbering system is established either north or south of a principal baseline. For example, the fourth tier south of the baseline is labeled Township Number 4 South, abbreviated T. 4 S. 57 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

58 Townships Townships are also numbered according to vertical meridians, known as ranges. Ranges are established either east or west of a principal meridian. The third range east of the principal meridian is called Range Number 3 East, abbreviated R. 3 E. 58 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

59 Townships Now combine T. 4 S. and R. 3 E. to locate a township or a piece of land 6 miles by 6 miles or a total of 36 square miles. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

60 60 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

61 Sections Townships are divided into units that are mile square, called sections. Sections in a township are numbered from 1 to 36. Section 1 always begins in the upper right corner, to the left and down. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

62 62 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

63 Sections The legal descriptions of land can be carried one stage further using sections. A section is one mile square. For example, Section 10 in the township given would be described as Sec. 10, T. 4 S., R. 3 E. This is an area of land 1 mile square. 63 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

64 Sections Sections are divided into acres. One acre equals 43,560 square feet One section of land contains 640 acres. 64 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

65 Sections and Quarters In addition to dividing sections into acres, sections are divided into quarters, Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

66 66 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

67 Sections and Quarters The northeast one-quarter of Section 10 is a 160-acre piece of land described as NE 1/4, Sec. 10, T. 4 S., R. 3 E. When this section is keyed to a specific meridian, it can be only one specific 160-acre area. 67 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

68 Sections The section can be broken further by dividing each quarter into quarters. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

69 69 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

70 Sections If the SW 1/4 of the NE 1/4 of Section 10 were the desired property, then you would have 40 acres known as SW 1/4, NE 1/4, Sec. 10, T. 4 S., R. 3 E. 70 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

71 Sections The complete rectangular system legal description of a 2.5-acre piece of land in Section 10 reads: SW 1/4, SE 1/4, SE 1/4, SE 1/4 Sec. 10, T. 4 N., R. 8 W of the San Bernardino Meridian, in the County of Los Angeles, State of California. Refer to Figure EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

72 72 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

73 Sections The rectangular survey system may be used to describe very small properties by continuing to divide a section of a township. 73 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

74 Sections The township sections legal description may be used to describe the location of the point of beginning of a metes and bounds legal description. This is especially true when the surveyed land is an irregular site or plot within the rectangular survey system. 74 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

75 The Lot and Block System EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 75

76 Lot and Block System The lot and block legal description system can be derived from the metes and bounds or the rectangular system. Generally when a portion of land is subdivided into individual building sites, the subdivision is established as a legal plot and recorded as such in the local county records. 76 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

77 Lot and Block System The subdivision is given a name and broken into blocks of lots. American River Canyon Estates. Silver Springs. Vintage Park. Camden Passage. Wexford. Sheldon Acres. 77 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

78 Lot and Block System A subdivision may have several blocks, each divided into a series of lots. Each lot may be 50' >< 100', for example, depending on the zoning requirements of the specific area. 78 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

79 Lot and Block System Refer to Figure 12.9 Shows an example of a typical lot and block system. A typical lot and block legal description might read: LOT 14, BLOCK 12, LINCOLN PARK NO. 3, CITY OF SALEM, STATE. This lot is the shaded area in Figure 12.9 (page 202). 79 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

81 Site Plan Requirements EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 81

82 Site Plan Requirements A site plan, is a map of a piece of land that may be used for any number of purposes. also known as a plot plan or lot plan A site plan is a plan view drawing. Site plans may show a proposed construction site for a specific property. 82 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

83 Site Plan Requirements Sites may show topography with contour lines or the numerical value of land elevations may be given at certain locations. 83 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

84 Site Plan Requirements Site plans are also used to show how a construction site will be excavated These plans are then known as grading plans. 84 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

85 Site Plan Requirements Site plans show the following: A legal description of the property based on a survey. Property line bearings and directions. North direction. Roads and easements. Utilities. Elevations. 85 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

95 Site Plan 95 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

96 Site Plans-Property Property Lines Property lines define the site boundary. The length and bearing of each line must be identified on the plot plan. Property line lengths are measured with an engineer s scale to the nearest 1/100 foot. 96 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

97 Site Plans-Property Property Lines 97 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

98 Site Plans-Property Property Lines Bearing angles are recorded in degrees, minutes and seconds from north or south. An example: S 63 o W A more specific example: S 63 o W 98 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

99 Site Plans-Bearing Measurements 99 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

100 Site Plans-Property Property Lines If the property corner begins or ends on a specific benchmark it is usually identified with a special symbol. All other corners are represented by drawing a small circle, with the center of the circle being the property corner. 100 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

101 Site Plans-Property Property Lines 101 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

102 Site Plans-Property Property Lines It is customary when drawing the property lines of a site to begin at a given corner, and proceed in a clockwise manner until the beginning point is reached. 102 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

103 Site Plans-Property Property Lines 103 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

104 Contour Lines EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 104

105 Contour Lines A contour is a line connecting points which have the same elevation. The shoreline of a lake is a good example of a contour line. 105 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

106 106 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

107 Contour Lines Contour lines help describe the topography of the site by depicting shape and elevation of the land. The accepted reference point of topographical surveys is mean sea level. 107 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

108 Contour Lines Contour interval is the distance between two adjacent contours. This interval may be any distance which is functional for the specific drawing. Always identify the contour interval. 108 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

109 Contour Lines 109 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

110 Contour Lines When contours are spaced closely together, a steep slope is indicated. 110 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

111 Contour Lines 111 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

112 Contour Lines When contours are smooth and parallel, the ground surface is even. When contours are irregular, the ground surface is rough and uneven. 112 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

113 Contour Lines 113 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

114 Contours Summits and depressions are represented by closed lines. 114 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

115 115 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

116 Contours Contours of different elevations do not cross. Only in the instance of a vertical slope would the contours appear to touch. 116 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

117 Contours Contours cross watersheds and ridge lines at right angles The concave side of the curve faces toward the higher elevation. 117 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

118 118 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

119 Contours Contours lines Are drawn from a survey are usually represented by a series of long (one or two inch), thin, freehand lines. 119 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

120 120 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

121 Contours The accuracy of the survey is important. Too few measurements taken for a given area results in less accuracy of contour representations. 121 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

122 122 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

123 Contour Lines Many times, it is not important to know how far a point is above or below sea level, but what the relative difference is between two or more points. In residential construction, relative elevations are usually sufficient. 123 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

124 124 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

125 Topographical Features EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans 125

126 Topographical Features Topographical features are represented by symbols. Many symbols are standardized and are easily recognizable. Good practice dictates that the symbol list be shown on the drawing. 126 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans

127 Topographical Drawings In some topographical drawings, color plays an important role. When color is used the following rules apply: Black - lettering and the works of man, such as houses, roads, etc. Brown - all land forms, such as contour lines. Blue - water; streams, lakes Green - vegetation. 127 EDT 300/ENGR Site Plans
