These standards are intended to ensure consistent design and construction requirements and adherence to the Woodland Municipal Code and the City’s comprehensive plans. It is this City’s policy to maintain a high level of quality in the construction of public facilities. The standards detailed herein have been prepared to foster consistent requirements of quality and value for both public and private construction, and are to be applied to both.
The standards in these documents set forth the minimum criteria and specifications for both public and private construction projects. In addition, these standards provide the minimum design and construction requirements for utility and street improvements to be accepted by the City of Woodland. The Director may substitute more stringent design standards and specifications where special conditions warrant. The Director may relax these standards upon approval of a variance.
These standards shall not substitute for engineering design, nor are these standards intended to limit innovative design where equal performance in value, safety, and maintenance economy can be demonstrated.
