Standard General Notes Required on Construction Drawings
The following is an update to the previous policy dated June 5, 1995. This updated policy shall apply to all construction drawings submitted for initial review to the City Engineer’s office after January 1, 2002 and all construction drawings presently under review.
This policy, in conformance with established practice by the City of Dublin, and according to utility service agreements with the City of Columbus, applies to all commercial, residential, or multi-family developments or capital improvements involving the construction, modification, addition, or removal of public infrastructure including, but not limited to, roadway components, storm sewers, waterlines, sanitary sewers, street lights, traffic signals, grading, sidewalks, bike paths, bridges, culverts, erosion control measures both temporary and permanent, street trees and landscaping within the right-of-way or publicly dedicated easements as determined by the City Engineer. In addition, privately owned or maintained improvements such as storm sewer, sanitary lines, water services, site grading, temporary erosion control, or storm water management also apply.
- Design guidelines for preparing constructions plans for the types of developments and improvements covered by this policy include the following:
- Plans shall be submitted in digital format compatible with AutoCad 2000, once final approval is given by the City Engineer.
- Bearings and distances shall be based on and referenced to the State Plane Coordinate System. The references shall be physically tied into known survey control monuments (e.g., Franklin County, U.S. Geological Survey, National Geodetic, etc.).
- Installation of sanitary and storm sewers shall only be permitted along street right-of-ways within public easements unless otherwise authorized by the City Engineer.
- Where applicable, a map shall be provided delineating the contributing area in acres to the sanitary sewer system. All sanitary sewer manholes shall be numbered, consistent with the numbering on the improvement plans. A copy of the location map may be used for this purpose. Sanitary sewer service shall be provided to each lot. If sanitary sewer service is not provided to the basement, it shall be so noted on the sanitary sewer improvement plans and on the recorded final plat.
- Where water lines are ready for disinfection, two (2) sets of as-built plans and a letter stating that the water lines have been pressure tested and require disinfection shall be submitted to the Columbus Division of Water.
- Lettering depicted on construction plans shall be not less than 0.1 inches. Sheet size shall be 22″ by 34″ (D-size). Ohio Department of Transportation drafting standards shall be followed with respect to all other format and style requirements.
