Public Improvement Design Standards & Details

The city’s Public Improvement Design Manual has been developed to provide a uniform set of standards and procedures which provide assistance to both the city staff and private consulting engineers when coordinating, processing and constructing public improvement projects.

“The City of Tigard Public Improvement Design Standards have been revised as indicated below and re-issued. These revisions reflect immediate needs to ensure the City is receiving adequately designed and constructed streets that are resilient and consistent with other local jurisdictions standards. Documents posted to the city website related to this update include a Pavement Design Addendum, a technical memo providing background supporting the addendum, and a street lights requirements memo.  

In addition to the revisions reflected here, the City of Tigard Engineering Division is embarking on a substantial review and update to the entire Public Improvement Design Standards, starting in Spring 2020, with anticipated completion by early 2021.   Opportunities for stakeholders to review and comment on all standards will be provided during this full update process.”

NOTE: The manual is currently being updated, but the current version can be downloaded in its entirety or by specified sections as follows:

1. Public Improvement Design Standards Manual (Street standards only)
2. Water Distribution System Design Standards (Revised 9/9/09)
3. Street Details (Revised 2/16)
4. Water Details (Revised 3/17)
5. Wireless Facilities Design and Construction Standards (Effective 1/15/19)
6. River Terrace Standards
