Design Standards

Public Works Design Standards  

In addition to state and federal guidelines, the City of Fernley has specific public works design standards that must be followed when constructing public improvements within the City limits.

Adherence to these standards not only ensures the quality and consistency of public improvements within the City, but also ensures they can be easily maintained by the City of Fernley Public Works Department once they are completed.

The City has prepared standard details and general notes, which should be included in all engineering plan submissions.
