And address points, amenities, water features, gates, and whatever else 
might be around, maybe a bridge or a stream or something. Oh, and don't 
forget the streets themselves if aerial imagery is outdated. It's not 
terribly exciting, but it's not terribly hard, either. A few hundred 
house subdivision only takes a couple of hours at most to map and input.

If all I wanted was street names, I'd ask the planning commission.

Besides, there's some amount of fun that comes from "beating" Google. ;)
