Are There Public Improvements Involved?

Public improvements (also referred to as "subdivision improvements") mean facilities, infrastructure and other appurtenances, typically owned and maintained by the city (but not necessarily located upon city-owned property or right-of-way—public improvements can be located upon private property), which serve a public purpose in providing a needed service or commodity, such as wastewater collection and treatment and water storage and distribution, and which protect the general health, safety, welfare and convenience of the city's citizens, including efficiency in traffic circulation and access for emergency services. Learn More
