Municipal
 

Weden Engineering provides a wide range of services to support the needs of our government and municipal clients. We provide full-service design, construction management, and inspection services for roadway, utility, and essential public facilities capital improvement projects. We also regularly consult to the Community Development (Planning) division in complex long range land-use actions, subdivision process procedure, and development review of construction drawings.

 

Our comprehensive understanding of internal City administrative procedure, quasi-judicial and legislative process gives us the perspective necessary to formulate realistic strategies and succeed through complex land-use projects.

 
Below is a sampling of a few recent municipal projects:
