The Engineering Division is responsible for the management of capital improvement and private development projects that impact the City's public infrastructure, right-of-way, and stormwater management system.

The Engineering Division focuses its efforts in assisting the residents of Upper Arlington, the Professional Design Community, Public Utilities, Private Developers & the Private Contracting community.

The Engineering Division focuses on informing residents on what projects are scheduled in their area, how their local streets rate compared to other streets in the City, traffic related issues, how to receive a petition from the City for new Curb & Gutter or Sidewalk installation, and the types of permits needed if digging in the City Right-of-Way.
