To minimize the spread of COVID-19, the City will be reducing service levels to essential services only. All City Hall offices are closed, except the main customer service counter (which is now open Monday-Friday from 8AM-5PM), Development Services, and the Permit Counter which is also open 8AM-5PM. See the Essential Services guide under the News Section for more details.

Public Facilities Improvement Standards


The purpose of the Public Facilities Improvement Standards is to provide minimum standards for the construction of improvements, which are to be dedicated to the public, and accepted by the City for maintenance and/or operation. These Public Facilities Improvement Standards may also apply to rights-of-way and easements. This is necessary to provide for coordinated development of required facilities to be used by and for the protection of the health, safety, and welfare of the public.

These Public Facilities Improvement Standards shall apply to, regulate, and guide construction of streets, bikeways, alleys, traffic signals, grading and site access, drainage facilities, sewerage collection and treatment facilities, water distribution and treatment systems, and the related public improvements, and shall set guidelines for all private works which involve drainage, grading, trees and related improvements.
