The Planning & Engineering Department provides design, construction and regulatory services.  The bulk of the work performed is as an ‘in-house’ engineering service provider for the City.

Major activities include functional and detailed designs; land development management; construction and project management services; technical support services; drafting and design; surveying; utility installation approvals; permitting (Right-of-Way Use, Demolition, Boulevard Crossing); approval of  water and sewer infrastructure as part of the building permit process; and customer water and sewer utility connection management.

The Department also provides civil engineering services to all the other departments as the need arises, including surveying and drafting; inspection of curb crossings; field testing; commissioning of new (public or private) potable water and sewer infrastructure; and stewardship of City boulevards during private development.
