Site Plan and Construction Drawing Review
The Engineering Department is responsible for the review of public infrastructure systems detailed in site plan and construction drawing submittals to verify that the applications meet Town specific design standards as specified within the Engineering Design & Construction Manual.  Public infrastructure systems such as stormwater, streets, sidewalks, greenways and other ancillary systems are reviewed by the department for compliance with the design and construction standards to protect the safety of the citizens and minimize unnecessary future expenditures of public funds.  The following information is provided in support of the development review and submittal process:
