The City of St. Albert, in conjunction with representatives from the Urban Development Institute and local stakeholders recently completed a thorough update to the Municipal Engineering Standards.
These standards are comprised of the minimum technical standards that must be met when developing lands in St. Albert. The technical standards provide detailed specifications and requirements for the design and construction of infrastructure the City will become responsible for including critical infrastructure items such as roads, sidewalks, underground utilities, lift stations and reservoirs.
The 2013 Municipal Engineering Standards document also includes Council-approved design principles that shape the look and feel of St. Albert through landscaping, branding and recreational amenities. This document meets regulatory requirements, recognizes new technology and/or products, and better protects the City’s short and long-term interests in the areas of the environment, safety and overall lifespan of the infrastructure.
2013 Municipal Engineering Standards
The 2013 Municipal Engineering Standards provide detailed specifications and requirements for the design, materials and construction relating to all work in the City of St. Albert including road construction, land development, underground utilities and landscaping.
An Excel spreadsheet has been provided to complete the LOC calculation for Development Agreements.
Industrial Engineering Design Principles
Administration took forward three possible Industrial Engineering Design principles to Council in April 2013 and recommended deferring a final decision until the City completes the Concept Plan for the Employment Lands (anticipated early 2014). The City will conduct community consultation with landowners and potential developers to gain feedback on the three potential options. This information will be presented to Council in 2014 at which time the design principles for Industrial Lands will be further defined.
