Land Subdivision Records

1852-[ongoing]

Series documents the subdividing and partitioning of land within the county. Records include survey notes, correspondence, photographs, satisfaction of agreements, maps of subdivided and partitioned land, and contracts and permits. Information includes subdivision names; lot, street, and alley dimensions; and township, range, and section numbers of land to be subdivided or partitioned.

Early subdivision plats dating back to 1852 were recorded in the deed record, commissioners journal, and road record. See the combination plat index in the county clerk's recording office for specific references. The Search Planning Documents option on the Jackson County Web site provides access to various comprehensive plan, zoning, land division, and other ordinance documents from circa 1959-present.
