The Engineering and Construction group is responsible for designing, bidding and managing the construction of public infrastructure and facility improvements in the city. Projects are awarded through a formal Request for Bid process for all projects.
For a list of current construction projects, please visit our Projects page.
Private Development oversees the public component (streets, water, sewer, etc.) of private projects. Staff is responsible for reviewing and permitting all proposed new infrastructure and all proposed impacts to existing public infrastructure.

Any construction work done within the public right-of-way or utility easement requires a city Right-of-Way Construction Permit.
The basic permit fee for minor work is $75. Extensive proposed work, such as a new subdivision or a new commercial project, will be charged a 5% fee, which covers the plan review and the construction management to build the project. The 5% fee is the total cost to the contractor/developer to construct the infrastructure that will become a part of the city infrastructure (sewer, water, storm lines, street, curb & gutter, sidewalk) at completion.
