Plat Requirements

Applicant Advisory

1. Paperwork can be dropped off during regular business hours once the plat shows "working plat" on our website. However, the items are not considered complete until they are reviewed by the Assigned Planner and checked off. All documentation should be submitted electronically to platting@hcpid.org.

2. After review, you must make an appointment with the Assigned Planner to come in and make corrections to the Mylar. Department policy requires you to bring all outstanding items with you at this time to eliminate multiple appointments for one plat.

3. Mylar cannot be taken from our office once a municipality and/or the County Engineer has signed off.

4. Appointments made on Thursday and Friday of a deadline week does not automatically ensure that the plat will be promoted to the next Commissioners' Court agenda. Please give yourself and the Planners sufficient time for review to avoid delays.
