Property "lines" are determined by the location of property markers or boundary monuments placed on a property. Markers are metal pins placed in the ground at every corner of the property, including any angle, intersection, or change of direction of the boundary line. Pins may include a plastic cap with surveyor identification information. Markers should be shown on the original and all subsequent survey plats of a property. The most accurate and reliable method to determine a property boundary is to hire a registered land surveyor to perform a survey of your property. The surveyor is licensed to perform such work and can locate any existing pins and replace any that are missing. Please do not remove property pins. The City of Moline does not locate private property lines nor resolve property line disputes. Property owners may attempt to locate property markers themselves to estimate the location of property lines. South Moline Township and Moline Township offices maintain tax parcel maps which show the recorded property dimensions for all lots of record. Copies of these maps may be obtained at your township office.
Visit the City of Moline's Citizen Information Map. After you accept the legal agreement / disclaimer, search by address or use the map zoom tools to locate a property or general area in Moline. Check the 'Zoning' layer box in the Table of Contents window to activate the zoning data layer. Zoning classifications are labeled and distinguished by multiple colors on the map. If you experience problems or would like staff assistance with your inquiry, you may contact the zoning administrator at 309.524.2050 with the property address or tax parcel number.
