L.A. County Public Works launches Twitter account

The Los Angeles County Public Works Department launched a new Twitter account recently, to help put residents on the map – literally.

Followers of LACoSurveyor will be able to receive daily updates on tract map and parcel map recordations throughout Los Angeles County, including the unincorporated areas and all 88 cities.

In addition, LACoSurveyor will also provide other land surveying and development-related tweets covering a variety of industry topics, such as proposed legislation or policy changes, and updated subdivision processing guidelines.

Accoring to Dennis Hunter, the assistant deputy director in the department’s Land Development Division, the new Twitter account has already proven popular with followers.

“The creation of new lots and parcels for sale, lease or financing is a good indicator of economic recovery,” Hunter said. “By visiting LACoSurveyor, you can monitor economic trends and see how many new subdivision maps are being recorded on a daily and weekly basis.” 

Digital copies of subdivision maps are available for download from, where visitors can also find links to other web pages for additional county subdivision and survey-related information.

Hunter also expects LACoSurveyor to cut department operating costs by expanding the existing online content and reducing the need for customers to visit Public Works facilities in person for survey-related records.
