Building Setback Verification Guidelines

We will now require the submittal of a certified form board survey plot plan, prepared by a state of Texas licensed land surveyor instead of the string line placement. The form board survey, as well as the string line placement, must be available to the inspector before the phase I inspection will be approved.

It is our intention, by expanding your options, to allow more flexibility in completing your projects, as well as providing protection both to you and the City of Mesquite, to insure that the house complies to the required setbacks within your subdivision. This policy change will take effect immediately after receiving this policy notice. All form board survey are to be left in the permit pouch on the job site for inspector review during the inspection process.
