Looks like the plural version doesn't meet the criteria.

Back on topic, has anyone ever gotten bent over for not using "proposed"?

It really doesn't matter, it's "proposed" whether you label it as such or not.  Your plat is only an accessory document until it becomes part of the title when acknowledged in a deed. I always thought planning jurisdictions requiring "proposed" was silly. Many of them now require "new", which makes more sense for a recorded subdivision plat with new public r/w and easements.

I've come to find the reason being this:

Proposed seems to suggest the journey of the plat's adoption through the approval phases of review.

However, we should look at the plat as it is meant to be viewed by others using it as a recorded document. The easement exists as shown and accepted on the plat.

As an example: Showing a proposed sight triangle easement to the county of XYZ is wrong. The deed for the easement is recorded before the plat is filed. The plat is labeled as, "Sight triangle easement per DB 12345, page 4321." This goes for anything at the county or state level. However, easements dedicated to the township are accepted as recorded when the plat is filed. (New Jersey)

Prior to the easement existing, it would be labeled, "proposed". If it is only proposed...then that is what you should say. If you were to show an easement on a plat, and didn't label it proposed, then you are saying it exists. In the OP's case, I am assuming that the easement didn't exist when he signed the plat, therefore he has to label it the way that it really is (not the way he hopes).
