We review street and utility improvement plans for compliance with applicable design standards and regulations. Our division also inspects project construction to assure conformance with approved grading, drainage and storm water management plans.
As provided by State law, the City requires that anyone wishing to create or construct an encroachment in the public right of way obtain permission through an encroachment permit. Learn more about obtaining a permit.
Public Improvement Plans show how improvements are to be constructed within City rights-of-way and easements and also include improvements in private property areas. The improvements include, but are not limited to, street improvements, including street lighting and undergrounding of existing or proposed overhead utilities, sanitary sewer, water systems, storm drainage, and grading.
