Welcome

Welcome to the PLSC Website!

PLSC is a non-profit association dedicated to the improvement of land surveying education and practice. We encourage land surveying professionals and individuals interested in our profession to participate in our upcoming events, visit our Chapter websites and get involved! This is a great profession, and PLSC is here to support the profession to continually improve the practice within Colorado.

Need a Land Surveyor?

PLSC cannot recommend one surveyor over another. If you need a land surveyor, please  go to the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA) and download the list of Colorado licensed surveyors and also check for any disciplinary actions against a particular surveyor under the "Verify License Tab" on the DORA site. Certified Federal Surveyors are listed at www.cfeds.org/roster.asp. Be sure to check references for the surveyor you are considering hiring.

NOAA Office of Education Funding Opportunity
Posted October 31, 2019

The NOAA Office of Education has issued a competitive funding opportunity for projects designed to build environmental literacy of K-12 students and the public so they are knowledgeable of the ways in which their community can become more resilient to extreme weather and/or other environmental hazards, and become involved in achieving that resilience. This funding opportunity is soliciting two types of projects through separate competitive priorities.Priority 1 will support new projects ($250,000 - $500,000 per project) located in the Southern and Western Regions of the United States. * The Southern Region includes the following states and territories: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Texas, and the United States Virgin Islands. * The Western Region includes the following states and territories: Alaska, American Samoa, Arizona, California, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Northern Mariana Islands, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Priority 2 will support the evolution of projects funded under the 2015-2016 funding opportunities from this program. The list of awards that are eligible can be found here: https://go.usa.gov/xVGzr. Funding levels for this priority are $100,000 - $500,000 per project.For both priorities, eligible applicants are:* institutions of higher education; * K-12 public and independent schools and school systems; * other nonprofits, including community-based organizations and informal education institutions, such as museums, zoos, and aquariums; * state and local government agencies; and * Indian tribal governments in the United States. Please note that we do not anticipate issuing a solicitation for applications next year. Rather, applications to this funding opportunity may be funded with fiscal year 2020 and 2021 funds. We plan to issue a funding opportunity, including a priority to support new projects from the Eastern and Central regions, which comprise the remainder of the country, in fall 2021.DeadlinesFor Priority 1, pre-applications are required and will be used to determine which institutions are invited to submit full applications to this priority.
