HB76 Changes to Plat Recording Specifications Effective May 8, 2017
HB76 was signed into law by Governor Nathan Deal on May 8, 2017
This bill changes the law in several ways which corrected some unintended consequences of HB1004 which amended this code section in the 2016 legislative session. On May 9, 2017 the Georgia Board of Registration for Professional Engineers and Land surveyors adopted a guidance document to aid all those who are involved in the procedures of preparing and recording plats.
key and notable change to the law is the introduction of 4 new Surveyor Certifications, which apply to 4 different circumstances.
The Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia (SAMSOG) has prepared and released a sample plat, which illustrates how a plat will look that is compliant with the new law changes, along with some explanatory notations.
