Building Safety’s Engineering Private Development team shares responsibility for the stewardship of City of Tempe rights-of-way and onsite drainage.  This is accomplished using the civil plan review process as it applies to both commercial and residential private development.  Our purpose is to ensure compliance with various codes, ordinances, standards, and entitlement requirements that support many of Tempe’s divisions. 

Our permits include:

  • solid waste
  • street lights
  • street and sidewalk paving
  • storm drains and retention
  • water distribution and wastewater collection
  • execution of various project related entitlements and easements
