Population growth brings new development, and that means construction of public infrastructure. City Council approved revisions to the regulations and standards for Community Facility Agreements (CFA), Utility Construction Policy, and the Installation Policy and Design Criteria for Water, Wastewater and Reclaimed Water Infrastructure at their meeting May 7, to ensure new development adequately meets city standards.

The recent changes are a result of staff engagement and collaboration efforts with the Development Advisory Committee and respective development stakeholders in the community. Ongoing and meaningful opportunities for stakeholder participation in proposed changes to guidelines have ensured that the City produces communal agreements with the development community. City Council also approved policy updates to the Transportation Engineering Manual, Unit Price Ordinance and City Code Chapter 30 Streets and Sidewalks. Updates to the Subdivision Ordinance will be presented to City Council on June 4.

All new ordinances, regulations and standards for new development go into effect June 1.
