The purpose of establishing Public Improvement Standards is to help provide public facilities and services that ensure health and safety and enhance quality of life for the community.
These standards are not a substitute for engineering knowledge, experience, or judgment. The users of these standards must still exercise good judgment and where needed seek guidance from an appropriate professional. However, where deviation from these standards is prudent, the user shall follow the Design Exception process; which is also contained herein.
The current standards were approved September 23, 2014 to be used on all projects within the County maintained right-of-way.
Changes between the 2011 and 2014 standards can be found here.
