Commercial Developments & Subdivision Plats

Site plans and subdivision plats are reviewed to ensure they are in compliance with the Town's engineering regulations. Additionally, the Engineering Department staff provide inspections of the construction of public infrastructure such as subdivision streets and drainage systems.

Drainage Improvements

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen have adopted a drainage improvement policy which outlines the responsibilities for surface drainage on public and private property.

Park / Greenway Construction Projects

In cooperation with the Parks and Leisure Services Department, the Engineering Department performs oversight of park and greenway improvements.

Pavement Management

The Engineering Department staff oversee the resurfacing of streets within the Town, including the recommendation of streets to be resurfaced (based upon thorough inspections, with assistance of our in-house database of street and road conditions) as well as the administration of the resurfacing contract and inspection of the work by contractors. A resurfacing schedule is approved annually by the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and implemented in the fall construction season each year.

Road Construction Projects

Engineering staff work closely with consultants and contractors in the design and construction of roads, including right of way acquisitions and utility coordination. Through the Technical Committee of the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, the Town has received extensive federal funding for our major roadway projects, as well as many of our sidewalk and greenway projects. Copies of the Town's Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for the next 5 years are available upon request. Contact the Town Hall for more information.

Stormwater Matters Water Quality Program / NPDES

As a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II community, the Town is dedicated to improving water quality in our creeks through in-house and community education programs, construction oversight, and a variety of activities designed to involve both adult and student participation. The Town's Engineering Department staff oversee the stormwater program and provide support to the Stormwater Advisory Committee. Visit our Stormwater Matters page for more information.

Traffic Management Program

Engineering Department staff make recommendations to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen about safety improvements (i.e., traffic calming) within Farragut subdivisions upon request. Guidelines for this program are available on our website or by calling the Town Hall. Cross reference the Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
