Planning for the Future
The Land Development Engineering Division reviews and places conditions on private development plans for proposed projects. This division ensures that all development plans meet the standards set forth in the Poway Municipal Code. It is always a goal of staff to work with applicants to minimize construction- related disruptions to neighborhoods and businesses as much as possible. Additionally, this division processes Floodplain Development Permits, maintains securities on projects, and ensures engineering conditions are met on all approved private development projects.
Inspection & Construction
The Engineering Inspection Division is responsible for the inspection of all construction projects, erosion control on-site, and managing Right-of-Way Permits.
When anything is being built in the city, an Engineering Inspector will be assigned to the project. For example, if you are having a pool built, it will be an Engineering Inspector who will visit the site to ensure the dirt and erosion control are handled correctly before a building inspection can be requested.
