How Do I Find the Name of a Subdivision?
If you are unsure of the name of your subdivision, there are a couple of ways to find out. If you own your home, the subdivision name is in the legal description of your property tax bill or property deed. You can access the City of Salina Property Mapping and enter the address or parcel number of the property, then click on the results to display the legal description containing the subdivision name.

What is a Plat? 
A plat is a map, drawn to scale, showing how a piece of land is divided into lots with streets and alleys, usually for the purpose of selling the described lots; this is known as subdivision. After a plat is filed, legal descriptions can refer to lot numbers rather than portions of sections. Plats can also legally dedicate land for road and other rights-of-way.    

What is a Preliminary Plat? 
The preliminary plat is a general layout that is evaluated to determine if the design is suitable for the land and complies with the City's subdivision regulations. Some modification of the preliminary plat is permitted with the final plat application submittal provided the original design concept has not changed.

What is a Final Plat? 
A final plat is defined as a division of a tract of land into two or more lots, building sites or other divisions for the purpose of sale or development and including all divisions of land involving the dedication of a new street or a change in existing streets.

What is a Replat? 
A replat occurs when a property owner replats or subdivides a larger parcel of property into smaller lots, or smaller lots are combined into one larger lot. The lot boundaries change but the ownership of the property does not change until a deed is recorded.

What is a Planned Development District?
A Planned Development District (PDD) is a unique zoning classification that allows an integration of multiple land uses in a specified area. The purpose of the PDD classification is to encourage more creative and imaginative land use designs that are generally possible under conventional zoning regulations. A PDD may integrate single-family housing with other residential uses and even commercial uses where appropriate and compatible.
