Surveying Services

The Surveying Services section of the Deparment of Public Works reviews and organizes land surveying documents that deal with land in the County of Napa, including:

  • Lot Line Adjustments   
  • Voluntary Parcel Merger (formerly Minor LLA)
  • Certificates of Compliance
  • Record of Survey Maps
  • Parcel Maps and Final Maps

Our goals: 

  • ensure compliance with applicable State laws and County codes governing the practice of land surveying
  • encourage local professionals to use good surveying practices and
  • provide boundary and land-based information to the public.

Other tasks include the review of proposed annexations for local municipalities and special districts, for conformance to the standards by the State Board of Equalization.
