Construction Standards Update

The City of Yuma has implemented Construction Standards, consisting of both drawings an specifications,  to apply to all development within the City of Yuma.  These Construction Standards are reviewed intermittently for updates in order to remain current with industry best practices and changes in technology and materials.

Our current Construction Standards consist of the 2009 City of Yuma Standard Construction Drawings, and the 2018 revisions to the 2015 Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) Standard Specifications for Public Works Construction, along with the 2015  City of Yuma Supplement thereto.

At this time our 2009 Construction Standard Drawings are undergoing revision.  Information about the opportunity to provide feedback on teh proposed revisoins will be available in the near future.
