Land Development Manual

Sections 4, 5, and 6 updated on August 29, 2023

The Engineering and Surveying Division relies on the requirements included in the Placer County Land Development Manual (LDM) adopted for the purpose of establishing minimum standards for the design and construction of development improvements. Note that references to the Department of Public Works (DPW) within the text of the LDM Sections implies the Engineering and Surveying Division (ESD), due to the reorganization approved by the Board of Supervisors for the Community Development Resource Agency in 2006. Additionally, the Standard Design Detail Plates referenced in the LDM were updated in 2005 and again in 2016. Please contact engineering staff at 530-745-3110 for help referencing the current Plate corresponding to one referenced in the text of the LDM.
