The Engineering Department provides technical expertise and management support to the Board of Commissioners and the Township Manager in the administration and construction of roadway and utility infrastructure projects for both capital improvement and privately funded residential and commercial development activities.
The department takes pride in ensuring that compliance to construction specifications, standards and policies, are carefully monitored and enforced throughout the plan development, review, and construction operations of all projects. The department is also responsible for the operation and maintenance of the traffic signal systems for the township, including overall system management, upgrades, and complaint troubleshooting. Also, the Department is responsible for the computer network for the entire township, including overall system management, software and hardware implementation, and troubleshooting.
One of the primary functions of the Engineering Department is to review subdivision and land development proposals to assure compliance with applicable township Codes and to inspect construction sites to assure that the improvements are being built in accordance with approved plans. Any subdivision of land, modification of property lines, or consolidation of lot lines requires that a Subdivision Application and appropriate fees be filed with the Department of Engineering. All development proposals require that a land development plan be submitted and approved prior to issuance of building permits. Subdivision and land development plans are reviewed by the Township Engineer in conjunction with the Zoning Officer to determine whether the proposal complies with the Caln Township Subdivision and Land Development Regulations.
