Innovation in Capital Improvement Projects

SINCE THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, the City's Engineering Division has produced innovative designs for its infrastructure and continues to manage its community investment and public right-of- way projects. Projects are in compliance with approved plans, specifications, and applicable building codes, and meet high standards in quality, time, and cost. Our engineers provide project management services for Water, Sewer and Stormwater, sidewalks, roadways, fire stations and various Utilities Operations projects.

We work as one team to not only get the job done, but to get it done right. Our focus is to design a well laid out plan that can be maintained by our Operations Division.
