I'm kind of curious about this. Why not import those property lines? I'm not arguing for them, because it seems like a lot of work. But I note that in cities such as Fresno, they are in the map as landuse=residential. What if we add all the buildings, all the trees, every bench? Why not add property boundaries? I'm thinking 2030 here.

Thanks for pointing out my lapse. You are correct. I've used parcel
boundaries for parks a number of time.

Nonetheless (in order not to confuse the original poster) let's
reiterate that property lines themselves do not belong in OSM; only
where they can be used to deduce the bounds of something we *do* want in
OSM will they find their way into the database. We will not map
individual property lines in e.g. a residential neighbourhood (much less
import them).
