Public Works Design Standards

These design standards have been developed by the City of Philomath to provide a uniform set of standards for public improvements. The intent of these standards is to provide guidelines for the construction of public facilities that will provide an adequate service level for the present as well as for future development. The format has been kept brief and no attempt has been made to cover all possible situations or to provide lengthy explanations.

These design standards are updated annually. The date appearing on the title page is the date of latest revision of the text portion of the standards. The date appearing on the details is the date of the latest revision of that particular detail.

A hardcopy of the complete design standards is available for $25. Contact the Public Works Department at (541) 929-3579 to order a copy.
