In order to address the needs of the Department as well as the County and ensure that the control network is continuously maintained, County Administration agreed to create a brand new division within the Department; led by the newly created County Surveyor position. This division provides a full range of surveying services for parks, roadway design, county airports, environmental resource management, FEMA, county real estate acquisitions, Palm Beach County Sheriff's office and infrastructure projects throughout Palm Beach County. Maintains and coordinates a county wide network of horizontal and vertical control monuments that is utilized by both the public and private sector for projects throughout Palm Beach County. This control network helps surveyors maintain consistency along historical boundary lines and for future design considerations and is one of the largest networks in the State of Florida. Reviews subdivision plats, boundary surveys, legal descriptions, easements, lot combinations, minor subdivisions, right-of-way dedications, abandonments and development reviews for new projects to ensure they meet county and state compliancy code requirements. Staff works with Planning and Zoning to map approved Development Review Surveys for new project applications into the GIS database for design considerations throughout the county.
