Two or more of the required monuments shall be designated as control corners. The top of each monument shall have an indented cross, metal pin, or metal plate to identify properly the location of the point. All monuments shall be shown on the Final Plat. B. Markers: All lot corners, all points where the street lines intersect the exterior boundaries of the subdivision, and all angle points and points of curve in each street shall be marked with iron pipe either 3/4 inches or one inch in diameter and 18-24 inches long, driven so as to be within one inch of finished grade. C. Property Corner Tie: One or more corners of the subdivision shall, by a system of azimuths or courses and distances, be accurately tried to a monument of some United States or State Agency Survey System, such as the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey Systems, where such monument is within 2,000 feet of said corner. Where the North Carolina Grid System coordinates of said monument have been published by the North Carolina Department of Natural and Economic Resources, the coordinates of the referenced corner shall be computed and shown X and Y ordinates on the map. Where such a monument is not available, the tie shall be made to some pertinent and permanent recognizable landmark or identifiable point. D.
