Interesting point about storage, but in both my home county and farm county, the street file remains complete, be it on the dreaded microfiche, with plans, blueprints, etc. In my home county the planning dept docs are online with public access, with pretty good recovery rate for the last 10 years.
So, now that it's been asked, it's interesting to think about what is required to remain on file (and/or public info) and what gets destroyed after a certain amount of time.
: You won't find maps in the Recorder's Office, as they aren't a recordable document. However, engineering plans for subdivision layouts are required to be submitted for approval, just as building plans are. Once the subdivision roads are accepted by the city/county or the building receives its CO I suspect the retention period is limited to just a few years, as the plans are so voluminous storage becomes an issue.
: It sounds at though you want to determine where in the complex a specific floor plan can be found. The architectural plans are what you want but I suspect were probably destroyed long ago. The community site map to which you referred was probably an enlargement of site map used in the developer's brochures. After a few years the community signs will become a victim of weather and aging. Assessor maps are essentially schematics showing the APN, acreage, and property dimensions. They do have their use, but not for your purposes.
