The state of Oregon requires each county to have a County Surveyor. We provide a number of services required by the state, as well as support for county programs and the public.

These services include:

  • Providing access to public survey records
  • Reviewing surveys submitted by land surveyors
  • Filing and indexing surveys in the public survey records
  • Review and approval of land division plats, including subdivisions, partitions and condominiums
  • Maintaining and restoring public land survey corner monuments
  • Survey support for county roads and bridges, as well as other county and local agencies
  • Helping the public, county and local agencies with surveying expertise

We do not perform surveys for the public. Get help finding a surveyor.
