What is it?

Civil construction drawings are detailed engineering documents that are required for improvements to a particular site. Civil construction drawings are reviewed through the Coordinated Civil Review Process (CCR).

When is it required?

Civil Construction Drawing Review shall be required for all proposals that require construction or modification of streets, sidewalks, storm drainage, utilities, or any other surface or subsurface improvements that may be required.

How Much Does it Cost?

Our review fees are based on project type and are established within the Development Engineering Fee Schedule. An initial plan review fee is required to be paid at the intake submittal. Subsequent inspection fees apply at Site Permit submittal.

How Long Does It Take?

Review of final construction plans begins after Land Use approval conditions are issued. Each City review cycle is 28 days. If the plan set submitted is complete and addresses all conditions of approval, and any comments are addressed in a timely manner plans can typically be approved for construction in approximately 4 months. Time may be shorter for a very simple project, or longer if there are significant issues to be resolved, or delays in resubmittal of the plans or extensive review comments due to plan submittals that are incomplete or not in compliance with City codes and design requirements.

Where do I find your engineering design requirements?

Transportation design standards are described in Appendix 2 of the Redmond Zoning Code. Water and Utility design standards are in Appendix 3. Stormwater design standards are in the Stormwater, Clearing and Grading Technical Notebook. In addition, City design details and specifications are in the City of Redmond Standard Specification and Details.

How do I request a design deviation?
Deviation requests are required for any proposed improvements that do not meet City standards. The request should be in writing and include the design standard, a description of the proposed deviation, and the reason the City should consider granting a deviation. The City’s Technical Committee (consisting of the Planning Director, Public Works Director, and others) makes the decision to grant a design deviation. Administrative Deviation Request
