Sec. 9-3.503.  Preliminary procedure.
   Subdividers desiring to file a tentative subdivision map shall first obtain a tract number from the County Surveyor upon the payment of the fee prescribed therefor by resolution of the Board of Supervisors of the County.  Tract numbers may be obtained only after the subdivider has provided the County Surveyor with a description and plan showing the boundaries of the proposed subdivision, the area around it, and its relation to nearby public roads at a scale of one (1") inch equals five hundred (500’) feet. If a tentative map has not been submitted for approval within one year after the date of the issuance of a tract number, the number shall no longer be valid and shall be cancelled by the County Surveyor.  No number which has been used previously on a map which has expired or was denied shall be used again.  No tract number shall be issued whenever another valid tract number exists for all or part of the land lying within the proposed subdivision, unless the application is for a “dash number” of an approved tentative tract.  Such dash numbers shall be issued only for tentative tracts which have an approved phasing plan.
