The approved infrastructure plans in this section are aimed to share current and upcoming infrastructure improvements as a way to help standardize the submittal process. Additional resources can be found it the Developer Doorway, a growing knowledge-base of information and tools dedicated to standardizing the consistency and the quality of plan submittals, to provide technical resources, and to deliver reliable and timely status updates to the development community.
Street improvement plans convey information about the improvements you plan to construct. These plans are reviewed to ensure compliance with City, State, and Federal standards; adequate space is left for on-street parking; travel lanes for the intended volume of traffic; pedestrian and bicycle safety; and other transportation-related issues. A well designed public street system enhances public safety, improves air quality, reduces congestion, and contributes to community quality of life.

Street Light Plans
Streetlight plans convey information about the type, wattage, and location of streetlights required to be installed with various types of residential, commercial, and industrial development projects. These plans may also include Safety Lights, which are traffic signal poles and luminaires which temporarily function as streetlights at intersections which will be signalized in the future. Streetlight plans prepared by the developer’s engineer are reviewed by the city to optimize public street illumination for traffic safety purposes, without imposing undue public maintenance and energy costs. A well designed public streetlight system enhances public safety while contributing to community quality of life.

Traffic Signal Plans
Street Signals are submitted by private engineers to accommodate the installation of public infrastructure that is required by development entitlements, which include, but are not limited to, new subdivisions, parcel maps, Site Plan Reviews, Rezones and Conditional Use Permits. The Street Signals are normally prepared by private engineers at the request of the developer and then submitted to Public Works where they are reviewed to verify that the signal plans follow Federal, State, and City of Fresno standards.
