AEW has been involved with the Macomb County Remonumentation Program since 1992. The program is a continuing effort to remonument all General Land Office corners, Private Claim Corners, and other corners as approved and assigned by the Macomb County Representative.
The corners assigned to AEW underwent a specific and lengthy process. AEW’s survey team first gathered the necessary field information to determine the location of the assigned corners and presented the information and location to the Macomb County Remonumentation Peer Review Group. After the Peer Review Group and AEW agreed upon the location of the assigned corner, AEW set the approved monument at the corner position and established the necessary witnesses. AEW then established the State Plane coordinates for each monument according to the Michigan State Plane Coordinate Act. Finally, AEW was able to submit all necessary documents, and the PA 74 Land Corner Recordation Certification, to the Macomb County Representative.
AEW has also provided Remonumentation Services and Monument Preservations Services for Oakland County, Wayne County, and Lapeer County Remonumentation programs. We have also provided monument preservation services to area contractors for a variety of construction projects in Oakland and Macomb Counties. Prior to destruction of a government corner, AEW uses GPS or robotic total stations to locate the corner relative to surrounding physical features. After construction is complete, the corner is restored to its original location.
