PROPERTY RECORD CARD
A Property Record Card contains information about your property; the alternate key number, legal description, list of structures on the parcel, etc..
You can find a copy of your property record card visiting the web site below:
Enter your name or address and click the Search button and click the View
button beside your name in the list. This allows you to view your property record card.
NOTE: Remember, if your property is inside of municipal boundaries, all permitting will go through the municipality, not through Lake County.
Drawn to Scale
Drawn to scale means a specific amount of distance on the map you draw equals a specific amount of distance on the subject parcel.
instance, the example of the sketch you see in this guide is scaled at one inch equals 40 feet (1”=40’), if you measure the distance on the plot plan between
detached garage and the north property line it is two inches, or 80 feet.
The scale has to be consistent throughout the plot plan.
The plot plan depicts the measurements of all structures, setbacks and property lines as they are in real life.
Scale must be consistent throughout the sketch.
