CITY OF GOODYEAR

The City of Goodyear has been processing a 2012 revision to its Engineering Design Standards & Policy Manual and its Engineering Standard Details. A draft revision of these standards was completed in 2010 but was never taken through for City Council approval. The current 2012 version is an updated version of the 2010 draft.

The Engineering Department has posted the 2012 version in the City’s “draft documents” web page for the development community to view and to provide comments. In order to keep the process at a manageable size, the document has been broken into groups that will be up for review at different times throughout the year. Review time allotted for each group is 20 business days. Visit: ci.goodyear.az.us/index.aspx?NID=36
