The engineering department is responsible for the technical aspects of municipal engineering such as infrastructure and utility management, capital projects, land development engineering and support services.
Municipal engineering includes road works, pedestrian/cycling facilities, traffic management, water works, sanitary sewerage, storm water management and street lighting. Engineering personnel assess the demands on the City's infrastructure, which may result in capital works projects to either improve or replace the existing services. Staff plan, design and perform the review and assessment of engineering design proposals for capital works projects and new land developments and inspect the construction of these works. The engineering department also provides technical support to the operations department and other City departments as required and is responsible for the management of engineering records.
Engineering staff are committed to delivering services to residents in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Engineering also ensures all municipal infrastructure meets the needs and standards of the community.
Engineering maintains the Geographic Information System (GIS), which is the repository of a wide range of geographically referenced information on individual properties, roads and parks throughout the City of Parksville.
