How do I find my property lines?

It is the property owners’ responsibility to determine where the property lines are. Property iron stakes (typically 36-inch-long rods) are placed at the corners of the lot usually at or below grade, and sometimes can be found using a metal detector. The city does not provide surveying services. Approximate property lines and dimensions can be found on the county’s website. A property survey may also be on file at the City of Elk River. Please contact the Building Safety Division at 763-635-1060 or for assistance.
