The Transportation, Public Works, Salisbury-Rowan Utilities, and Land and Development Departments have worked with engineering consultant Alley, Williams, Carmen and King to generate an updated Draft Uniform Construction Standards Manual (Draft UCSM). The manual, which has not received a full update since the mid-1990’s, will aid the city, designers and developers by providing a manual that:
- Provides clear, up-to-date requirements to address infrastructure needs associated with increased development
- Offers consistency with other state and local codes
- Adds checklists and required notes to aid designers in plan submittals, and updates submittal process to be current with digital technology
- Provides opportunity for use of alternate materials
A full list of significant changes is available on the website, along with the full Draft Uniform Construction Standards Manual. A drop-in style public meeting will be held from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 at Park Avenue Community Center, 632 Park Avenue, Salisbury, NC 28144. Staff will be on-site to answer questions and receive input regarding the Draft UCSM prior to recommendation for final adoption.
