City Standard Plans

Standard details constitute minimum design standards for an agency. Design engineers shall provide equal to or greater than the requirements of the City Engineer under specific conditions. The engineer is encouraged to design beyond these levels to establish better quality projects.

They are prepared for the convenience and guidance of engineers, contractors and developers who have an interest in the preparation of plan and the construction of facilities and improvements under the jurisdiction of the City. Conformance with standards can help reduce design costs and the processing time needed to review and approve plans.

The City also uses and accepts the American Public Works Association Standard Plans (A.P.W.A.).
