Single Family HomeWhat 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.

The City of Olathe recognizes the following types of plats:

  1. Preliminary Plat
  2. Final Plat
  3. Replat
