Development Engineering review may include, but is not limited to, the following:
Typically, plans and reports are submitted to the Development Engineering for review and issuance of permits for any site development improvements to be performed within the City (excluding buildings and structures) whether public or private.
The Dougherty Valley is a master-planned community of approximately 11,000 units that was approved in 1994 by Contra Costa County. The two developers for the Dougherty Valley are Shapell Industries and Windemere BLC. Contra Costa County processes the development applications and works in conjunction with the City to determine when public improvements are completed. The County accepts the public improvements as complete, and the City then follows to accept the public improvements for maintenance and ownership. Public improvements include roadways, sidewalks, roadway landscape, parks, trails, water quality and detention ponds, storm drainage infrastructure, bridges, open space, and community facilities.
