Civil Plan Review

Plan Review Process

In addition to Planning Department site plan submittals and permits, the Public Works Department requires a separate set of civil construction plans for storm, water, sewer, and/or street construction.

Up to 15 working days are required for Civil Plan Reviews by the Public Works Department. Note on the plans that all utility construction must conform to the latest revision of the City of Kennewick Standard Specifications. The Public Works Department requires one full size (24" x 36") PDF set of civil drawings and one PDF set of storm calculations for review and approval.

Plan Requirements

The construction plans are to be submitted to the Development Review Supervisor through the Citizen Self Service (CSS) website. The plans must be 24 inches by 36 inches and stamped by a Professional Engineer licensed in the State of Washington. A signature block must be provided on each sheet of the plans for the City of Kennewick to sign showing approval for construction. Signature line should read "City of Kennewick Public Works".

The developer/builder is required to obtain the signatures after all revisions are made and prior to the Deputy Public Works Director approving the construction plans. Once all signatures are obtained and five paper sets and one PDF set of approved plans have been supplied, the Public Works Permit Technician will quote permit fees and issue permits.
