Engineering

The Engineering Division of Community Development Department designs and constructs public facilities, and reviews public improvements constructed in conjunction with the development of private property.  The Engineering Division is comprised of the Capital Improvement Section, Development Services Section and Construction Inspection.

The City of Pleasanton Engineering Division is located in the Civic Center Building, 200 Old Bernal Avenue, in the downtown complex next to the Library and Police Station. You can contact us at (925) 931-5650. We are open between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday

Residents can come to the counter to obtain encroachment permits, flood zone information, lot and tract maps, traffic calming data, traffic surveys, bid packages, as well as to discuss general concerns pertaining to the City utility infrastructure. Qualified engineers are on duty at all times during the hours of operation to answer questions and assist the public and private developers with any issues related to the Engineering Division.

Elements of the Division - The Engineering Division is organized in sections and employs 16 full-time employees.

Capital Improvement Section - This Section prepares the plans, specifications and contract documents for the construction of public improvements throughout the City, including roadway improvements, utility pipelines, pump stations, bridges, trails, and public buildings. This Section works closely with other Divisions and Departments within the City to determine specific needs, performance standards, and priorities for projects identified in the Capital Improvement Program adopted by City Council every two years. The Capital Improvement Program establishes funding and timelines for public projects.  The Capital Improvement Section also serves the public at the permit counter in issuing encroachment permits to allow temporary use of the public right of way. The Capital Improvement Section also administers the City’s Pavement management System, determining which streets are repaved or reconstructed each year.

This Section works closely with private developers, the developers’ engineers, and the public in the review and approval of subdivision maps and improvement plans. This Section assures that the City’s standards for the construction of public improvements are met and that the proposed subdivision of private property is in conformance with the State Map Act as well as local ordinances. 

Construction Inspection Section - This Section provides inspection of public project designs during construction and assures that approved plans and specifications are followed during the construction of public projects. Examples of public improvement projects include construction of, and repair and improvements to public streets, utility pipelines, pump stations, bridges, trails, public buildings and public parking lots. This section also works closely with outside utility companies that use the public right of way for the routing of their facilities by issuing encroachment permits to control the time, place and manner of construction in public streets.
