Public Works

The City of Hillsboro Design and Construction Standards (DCS) help to keep people and property safe.  By setting minimum standards for the design and construction of public infrastructure, the DCS ensure adequate quality and function of public improvements. 

While the information in the DCS is most relevant to developers and engineers, there are some aspects that are applicable to home and land owners in Hillsboro.  For example, the DCS defines street tree and sidewalk maintenance and replacement responsibilities and prescribes driveway renovation, drainage system, and erosion control requirements. 

The DCS also regulate the design and construction of private transportation and utility improvements which connect to or impact public infrastructure
