The purpose of this document is to set standards for the design and construction of public improvements. These include street, bikeway, drainage, water, and sanitary sewer improvements as required by the development review process, City ordinance, and other City policies adopted by the City. Standards for site grading, erosion control, parking lot, private street, and driveway construction on private property are also contained in these standards. No such work shall commence prior to City approval of the construction plans. Design submitted shall be stamped by a registered professional engineer licensed to practice in the State of Washington, or as otherwise approved by the Director.

The KEDM shall govern all new construction and upgrading of facilities both in the right-of-way and on-site for: transportation-related facilities; storm drainage facilities and stream channel improvements; sewer and water improvements; and park, recreation, and open-space facilities used by the public.
