1. The proposed lines for all affected lots, indicated by heavy solid lines;

2. The existing lot lines proposed to be changed, indicated by heavy broken lines;

3. The location of all structures/improvements existing upon the affected lots and the distance between structure/improvements and the proposed lot/boundary lines;

4. The original legal description of the entire property together with new separate legal descriptions for each parcel, labeling them specifically as Parcel A, Parcel B, etc.;

5. The position of rebar and caps set at each new property corner;
