Projects in Design

When a project has been approved in the budget by the City Council, it moves from the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) list into the active Design phase.  The Design phase is an exploratory process where City staff identifies key elements of the project, researches information needed to implement the project, hires and Engineering firm to lead the design team and solicits public input.

The design of a project is a very important first step to identify construction elements to promote the timely delivery of the project with as little impact to neighboring properties as possible.

A Project Manager (PM) is assigned to each project on the CIP list.  The PM is the point of contact for the public and is responsible for guiding the engineering firm through the design process until a complete set of plans are approved by the City.

As the plans are developed, they go through phases of completion.  These phases are known as:

  • 15% plans (conceptual)
  • 30% plans (preliminary design)
  •  60% plans (design development)
  • 90% plans (pre-final design)
  • 100% plans (completed final design)

Public input on the design of a project is typically done around the 30%-60% plan phases.  A community open house meeting may be held by the City and design engineer to explain the project, answer questions and get input from the public.  By this time, enough information is known about the project to answer questions and have a good understanding of the needs of the project.

When the design of the project is complete, it will move on to the construction phase.  View projects in the “Construction” phase.

A complete list of projects currently in design, is listed below:

  • Updated on 10/19/18

    The project will replace approximately 15,600 Lineal Feet (LF) of 24-inch to 48-inch gravity sewer trunk and branch mains near the Airport in the north Prescott area. The project will begin at the Airport Water Reclamation Facility and will run southerly to the Northern edge of the Granite Dells. Results of the Sewer Model Report and Centralization Analysis, determined that the existing Airport Trunk Main needs to be upsized for current flow demands and for the centralized build out scenario. This project is the 5th of 10 projects that will complete centralization of the Wastewater Treatment process. Centralization, when completed will combine all wastewater treatment processes at the Airport Water Reclamation Facility and decommission the Sundog Wastewater Treatment Plant.
