Rob Snodgrass is serving his first term as Douglas County Surveyor having been elected in November 2014. This is the first-ever publicly elected position that Rob has held.
The primary function of the County Surveyor is the review, filing and indexing of Land Survey Plats that have been prepared based upon a field survey conducted by a Colorado Licensed Professional Land Surveyor. The other function of the County Surveyor is to represent the County in any boundary disputes and to notify the County Attorney of any unsettled boundary disputes or boundary discrepancies within the county. Other County Surveyor functions can be authorized by the County Commissioners such as conducting surveys to establish the boundaries of County property, including road rights-of-way and the examination of all survey maps and plats before recording in the Clerk and Recorder’s office.
Rob is an active member of the Professional Land Surveyors of Colorado (“PLSC”), having been a member since obtaining his Colorado Professional Land Surveyor’s license in 2001. Rob also served the Central Colorado Professional Surveyors chapter of the PLSC as a Director from 2006 through 2010.
Rob has more than 35 years of land surveying experience, having started out as a “gofer” at a prominent land surveying and civil engineering firm in Southern California, eventually rising to manager of the survey department after obtaining his California Professional Land Surveyors license in 1992.
Rob was born and raised in Southern California. Rob and his family relocated to Colorado in the summer of 2001 and settled in Highlands Ranch. Rob and wife Lorrie will be celebrating their 32nd wedding anniversary in 2015 and have two grown sons who still reside in Douglas County.
Rob enjoys the great Colorado outdoors during the spring, summer and fall months camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting throughout Colorado and spends the winter months just waiting for spring to arrive.
