Seal of Dane County County of Dane
Planning & Development


The County Surveyor is coordinating a long term countywide USPLSS Re-monumentation effort. These monuments make up the skeletal structure of our land ownership system. This project will benefit residents in many ways, some of which are cost savings on property surveys, more accurate mapping in the Dane County parcel data and Farm Services Agency data, and provide a more accurate base for analyzing title issues.  An example of the letter sent to each community before work begins is located HERE.
