The Recordation desk of the Salt Lake County Surveyor offer a variety of data and services which are available to the public in Suite N1300 of the Salt Lake County Government Complex.
We provide a repository for all
boundary surveys performed in Salt Lake County since 1987. Additionally, we have numerous copies of historic surveys and other information, which might be of interest to the researcher.
The Recordation section maintains a volume of standard city, township, county, and community maps. These standard maps contain commonly asked for information, or themes such as streets, cities, aerial photography, and waterways. However, if one of these standard maps does not meet your unique needs, we can create a
custom map for you.
Images of current and historical
aerial photography may be examined in the Recordation Section. Most of these documents have been ortho-rectified and are therefore very accurate and clear. Additionally, color or black and white images are available. Should the user desire a copy, they may purchase either a digital or a hard copy.
The recordation section is the point of contact to obtain a
monument preservation permit. The permit is required to insure public survey monuments are properly and adequately referenced before an individual, contractor, or developer removes, covers, or disturbs them and thus preserve its spatial integrity.The recordation section also maintains numerous files and databases of survey-related documents. The investigator will find information ranging from historic hand-tie sheets to current real time kinematic GPS coordinates; from early area reference plats to precise monument reference plats; and ancient federal, local, and mineral surveys to current private and public boundary
surveys. The recordation section staff is available to assist you in understanding your property description or providing answers to many common survey related questions
