City Plan Preparation Standards (CPPS)

The City of Corpus Christi Engineering Services Department issued the original Plan Preparation Standards and Contract Format document on January 30, 2001. The purpose of this document was to establish, define and clarify the requirements for preparing all project drawings for the City of Corpus Christi, including private developer plans, as applicable. Addendum No. 1 was issued on June 23, 2005, and Addendum No. 2 was released on July 12, 2007. Some references and terms are dated since 2007 (to be addressed in future updates), but essential elements are still applicable. Please check with the City Project Manager for any questions.
