After addressing all issues outlined in previous steps, you are now ready to record the plat. This final step is often times referred to as "plat tracing/mylar." You will need to submit the original mylar and three copies of the plat tracing/mylar, recording fees, tax certificates, and any outstanding supporting documents and fees.
Before submitting the mylar for processing, it must be signed by the property owner(s) and any lienholders identified through the subdivision process. The owner's certification verifies that the property owner is aware of the requirements set forth and agrees to comply with the conditions and restrictions identified on the plat tracing/mylar.
The City Planner will review the subdivision plat for completeness and compliance with approved conditions and standards. Once all revisions have been completed, the original plat tracing/mylar will be routed for signature by the Planning and Zoning Chairperson, Mayor, and Hidalgo County Drainage District #1. It will then be routed to the Hidalgo County Clerk for recordation.
Subdivisions located within the extra-territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) will be forwarded by your Engineer to the Hidalgo County Planning Department for concurrent processing.
