A property owner claiming a platting exemption under the McLennan County Subdivision Regulations Section 1.7 must request an affidavit from the McLennan County Engineering Department. This affidavit will identify and attest to the exemption being claimed. The affidavit will need to be signed by the property owner in front of a notary and filed with the McLennan County Clerk. A copy of the recorded affidavit is to be delivered to the McLennan County Engineering Department.
If the property owner does not wish to file an affidavit for the exemptions noted above, a plat will be required.
Note: If the property owner desires to apply for a septic system in the future, the On-Site Sewage Facility (OSSF) office will require either a plat or affidavit as part of their application packet.
