Such action shall be commenced by the filing of a complaint, in which the plaintiff shall set forth the making and filing of the map or maps, plat or plats, in accordance with the provisions of NRS 270.010 to 270.150, inclusive, and the other and further things and notices herein required. Together with the complaint the plaintiff shall file such map or maps, or plat or plats, together with such written objections or exceptions thereto as may have been filed as herein provided, and shall pray the court for an order adopting, fixing and establishing the map or maps, or plat or plats, and fixing, settling, establishing, determining and adjudicating the points, lines, descriptions, metes, bounds, names, numbers and letters of all blocks, lots, streets, alleys, highways, parks, schools, cemeteries and other properties devoted to public use and all lines and corners therein shown.

The summons shall be served as provided in NRS and the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure; but if the corrections shall not change the boundaries in any property owner’s property, the summons shall be served by publication thereof for 4 consecutive weeks in some newspaper in the county in which the property is situated, and such publication shall be deemed to be legal service thereof.
