(a) Preliminary Map. A “Preliminary Map” is less detailed than a Tentative Subdivision Map. It is used by some subdividers to obtain staff suggestions on design and improvement.
(b) Tentative Subdivision Map. A “Tentative Subdivision Map” is a study plan of the layout and design of the subdivision, the improvements proposed by the subdivider, and the existing conditions in and around the subdivision. The Tentative Subdivision Map and the other information accompanying it are designed to provide information necessary to the persons who must review the map for compliance with this division and other laws. (Government Code § 66424.5)
(c) Final Map. A “Final Map” is a formal map which divides or redivides the land into the lots shown on the map. This map must meet exacting requirements before it is recorded with the Humboldt County Recorder. A Final Map is required for all subdivisions creating five (5) or more lots unless exempted by Government Code § 66426.
(d) Parcel Map. A “Parcel Map” is a formal map which divides or redivides the land into the lots shown on the map. This map must meet exacting requirements before it is recorded with the Humboldt County Recorder. A Parcel Map is required for all subdivisions that do not require a Final map, unless it is waived as provided in § 326-34 of this Code.
(e) Reversion to Acreage Map. A “Reversion to Acreage Map” is a formal map which, when recorded, eliminates all lot lines and easements not shown on the map. (Ord. 1146, § 7, 7/19/1977)
