Department of Public Works reports

Basic Services

Reports are prepared by Public Works and approved by the County Council every year which are supposed to identify areas with inadequate public facilities - transportation (roads), water, and sewer, also known as "Basic Services". When an area is identified as "inadequate", for example, when an intersection is rated "F", that is supposed to stop development in the area that would cause further problems, for example, send more traffic to that failed intersection. Unfortunately, there are numerous way to get around the restrictions, including going to a hearing and arguing that the proposed development will not make the situation worse. That usually involves a bunch of mumbo-jumbo from a paid "expert", while the opposing community can't afford to hire their own "expert".

Every year, these reports are posted online, but disappear the next year, thus not allowing anyone to do a study on the progression of a problem over time. The following are from the archives.
