The Public Works and Utilities Department supports the Community Development Department's development review activities and construction inspections of public and private infrastructure and encroachment permit work. Large projects, which have the potential for generating significant traffic, are required to include traffic impact studies with their applications, which are reviewed by both PW&U staff and CDD staff. More information and contacts are available from the Public Works and Utilities Department page
