The items herein contained are the drafting standards, conditions, and specifications of the city of Ritzville, and are to be considered in conjunction with other provisions of city plans and/or regulations governing the submittal of design, construction, survey, or other plans and profiles. The city by this reference adopts the latest edition of the “Standard Specifications for Road, Bridge and Municipal Construction” (hereinafter referred to as the “standard specifications”) as prepared by the Washington State Department of Transportation and the Washington State Chapter of the American Public Works Association to govern all aspects of system improvements including but not limited to materials, labor, equipment for installation, workmanship, testing, etc. Any material, design, standard, or testing not specifically addressed within this document shall be as per the standard specifications. (Ord. 2001 § 1, 2006).

19.90.020 General requirements.

The following general requirements shall be met, unless otherwise provided for within this title, when plans are submitted to the city of Ritzville:

A. All final plans shall be prepared on standard double-matte Mylar sheets. The standard sheet size is 24 inches by 36 inches by three mil thick. All sheets shall be original or archival quality, Dayrex Dx 11 copy or equal.

B. The professional engineer’s seal, signature, address and phone number shall be placed in the title block area.

C. The final drawing shall be in ink on approved Mylar. No “sticky-back” or pasted pieces shall be allowed.

D. Use of the NGVD 29 datum for survey reference is required.

E. All existing and proposed improvements shall be located and dimensioned to the Government Land Office monument system, state plane coordinates, or Adams County survey monuments, or a monumentation system approved by the city. Proposed improvements should be referenced to the monument lines and street centerlines. Dimensioning must be done by stationing and offset from these control lines.

F. Scales: The scale shall be a standard engineering ratio.

G. The plan shall be drawn so the north arrow points to the left or to the top of the sheet.

H. The minimum lettering size is one-tenth inch. This is to ensure the plan is legible after microfilming or reduction.

I. The standard Washington State Chapter of the American Public Works Association symbols shall be used.

J. Match lines with matched sheet number shall be provided where the plan is drawn on two or more sheets. Where the plan is shown on three or more sheets, include a total site plan key map at scale one inch equals 100 feet or one inch equals 200 feet to cross-reference portions of the project with their corresponding plan sheet location.

K. All division or phase lines shall be indicated showing proposed limits of construction.

L. Existing and proposed topography contours shall cover the entire site and a minimum of 30 feet beyond the site boundary. Topography contours should be shown at one-foot intervals (five-foot intervals for slopes greater than 15 percent, 10-foot intervals for slopes greater than 40 percent). Elevation labeling shall be shown at 10-foot intervals maximum for one-foot contour intervals, maximum 25 feet for five-foot contour intervals.

M. Show and clearly label property lines (with distances and bearings), right-of-way lines, sensitive areas and setbacks and all existing and proposed easements with their recording numbers. Show any existing and proposed building footprints, when applicable.

N. Label all streets by city of Ritzville names.

5. Name and telephone number of architect/engineering firm preparing plans.

B. Existing Improvements and Topography. Show all existing underground and surface improvements and topography in proximity to the project. The information must be shown for the full width of the right-of-way or the easement and for a sufficient distance on either side of the right-of-way or easement to show possible impacts on adjacent properties and/or the relationship to related facilities.
