***Beginning Jan. 1, 2020, Dakota County will no longer require copies for recording plat mylars. Only the “OFFICIAL PLAT" mylar will be required after Dec. 31, 2019.***
All proposed plats are submitted to the County Surveyor’s Office by private surveyors or private surveying companies. Prior to recording, plats are reviewed by the County Surveyor’s Office in accordance to Minnesota Statutes 505 & Minnesota Statue 508.
A Manual of Guidelines for Platting Minnesota should be used as a guideline to assist land surveyors in the preparation and review of Subdivision Plats and Registered Land Surveys. Any questions regarding plat reviews in Dakota County, contact the County Surveyor's Office at 952-891-7087.
Plat Commission review
Only plats contiguous to County Roads are subject to another review by the Plat Commission.
