Engineering is responsible for the designing and managing capital improvement projects (like designing new bridges or park and playground improvements), as well as approving private development as it impacts the city right-of-way and city property.

Americans with Disabilities Act Transition Plan

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a Federal legislation designed to ensure that persons with disabilities are able to participate in programs, services and activities available to the general population. Title II is the section of the law that pertains to public agencies.

On a continuous basis, please notify us of any ADA-related deficiencies, hindrances or tripping hazards in the public right of way that you are aware of so that they could be evaluated and addressed. You can call 510.675.5308 report such locations to the Public Works Department.
