Control monuments

What is a control monument?

Control monuments are brass or metal disks in the ground. They measure locations and elevations and act as an exact point of reference to surveyors.

 What is the municipal process for maintaining control monuments?

The City:

  • Maintains maps and GIS datasets of all monument locations.
