How can I create a "Site Parcel" (being the property boundary of a subdivision) and then create the internal lots without having the Site Parcel reduced with each new lot (or sub-parcel) that is created. -Alan

Alan, When you create parcels, the parcel topology is collected into what Civil 3D refers to as a "Site". Sites can be named and created by the user. When you create the outer parcel boundary, Civil 3D will create a site for you and give it a default name of "Site 1". (You can also create a site of a different name and specify that site when you create you parcel boundary). Within Site 1 you will find nodes for Alignments, Grading Groups and Parcels. If you have just created one closed boundary, expanding the parcel collection will show a single parcel. If you further sub-divide the Parcel boundary, you will see the additional lots appear under the parcel node. The properties of the original boundary is preserved and you can access these properties by selecting the Parcel node -> Right Click -> Properties. The properties dialog that appear contains the information of the Site. You will also notice that there is a control for the "Site area label style" on the "Composition" Tab. By default, that is set to . If you select a label style, you can then display the properties of the Site in a label. An interesting way to see the extents of the Site is to type the command "offset". Select either the distance (or ) and then select the Site label as the "Object to offset". You will get a lwpolyline that is an offset from the "Site".
