The City is currently undergoing a comprehensive update of the Standards And Design Manual (SADM).  The purpose of this update is to incorporate needed changes to align the manual with current City goals such as the Streets That Work Plan and other guiding principals.

A pdf copy of both the initial draft manual and the new final draft manual is available below.  Also available is a spreadsheet that lists all documented comments received from the public, stakeholders and staff.  Responses to the comments are included in the spreadsheet.

A stakeholder workshop is scheduled for June 13, 2019 at the TJPDC Water Street Center (401 E. Water St.) from 5pm-8pm.
