SENATE RESOLUTION NO. 31

(By Senators Sypolt, Prezioso, McCabe, Unger, Stollings and Plymale)


Designating the week of March 15-21, 2009, as "West Virginia Professional Land Surveyors Week".

Whereas, There are over 1,200 professional surveyors in the State of West Virginia; and
Whereas, The nature of surveying has changed dramatically since the founding of our state and is no longer limited to the description and location of land boundaries; and
Whereas, Various types of land surveys, through the use of sophisticated equipment and techniques, are important to the use of our bodies of water, the development of engineering and construction projects, activities such as aircraft navigation and disaster response, mapping and charting our political and property boundaries, as well as commercial activities involving our natural resources; and
Whereas, The role of the surveyor has been, and remains, of vital importance in the commerce and development of the State of West Virginia; and
Whereas, Since the colonial days of this nation, surveyors have been leaders in the community, statesmen, influential citizens and shapers of cultural standards; and
Whereas, Former surveyors include George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln; and
Whereas, It was the work of the surveyor that determined the boundaries of land that, during the Civil War, became the State of West Virginia; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate:
That the Senate hereby designates the week of March 15-21, 2009, as "West Virginia Professional Land Surveyors Week"; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Senate hereby honors the work of professional land surveyors; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the President of the West Virginia Society of Professional Surveyors.
