Replat of a Final Plat
The replat is a legal document that is recorded with the County Recorder’s Office when changes need to be made after the final plat has already been recorded. The primary purpose of the replat is to fix errors from the original preliminary and final platting processes and also when changes need to be made to more than four parcels.
The replat is reviewed by City staff. It is then reviewed and either approved or denied by the City Council. Plan Commission review, although typically not required, occurs if new waivers are being requested.
For more information on the Replat, please see the corresponding application packet or contact the Planning Department.
DST conducts the majority of the subdivision review. DST consists of the Planning and Development Director, Assistant Planning and Development Director, two other Planners, Public Works Director, Assistant City Engineer for Development, Civil Engineer, Deputy City Attorney, and Deputy City Manager.
Additional copies of the replat will need to be submitted if any part of the subdivision is located outside the City limits but within the City’s extra-territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) or if any part of the subdivision is adjacent to an IDOT right-of-way.
Additionally, if the proposed subdivision is within the City’s ETJ and is also within the area designated to be annexed to the Village of Savoy under the Champaign-Savoy Boundary Agreement, the replat will need to be referred to the Village of Savoy for review.
If City Council disapproves a replat, the Planning and Development Director will send a written explanation to the subdivider containing reasons why the replat was disapproved.
Approval of the replat will be valid for 180 days following approval by City Council. If the final replat has not been recorded within that time, approval will be null and void unless the City Council approves a written application for an extension of time or the Planning and Development Director has approved an administrative extension.
The subdivider or developer will submit six copies of the replat together with the required application items for review to the Planning and Development Director. The submittal copies shall be in the form of four full size (24-inch x 36-inch) and two half-size (11-inch x 17-inch) copies of the replat. The exact size of the drawings may vary somewhat due to office production facilities.
