Design & Construction Standards for Land Development

These Standards have been prepared to provide guidelines for, and control over, the development of land within the Town of Gorham.

The intent is to assure proper design and construction of facilities which will be dedicated to the Town, and to assure that development is compatible with the long range development plans of the Town.

It is the intent of these Standards to conform with the Code of the Town of Gorham or general control of development by the Town Board and Planning Board, and it is intended to supplement such policies by providing the technical details necessary to carry out general policy.

These Standards do not include control over building design or construction. These matters are covered elsewhere by Gorham Town Code.

These Standards are divided into four parts. The first part is entitled General Requirements which deals with general procedures. The intent is to provide a guide which will assist in expeditious approval of development plans and completed works which are to be dedicated to the Town.

The second part is entitled Design Standards and provides a guide for Developers' Engineers in the preparation of plans and other information for the development of land.

The third part is entitled Construction Standards and provides the construction specifications. Developers and their Engineers are responsible that their Contractors follow these Specifications in constructing dedicated facilities.

The fourth part is entitled Standard Details and provides detail drawings that supplement the Construction Standards.

The fifth part is entitled Access Management and provides requirements for managing access to land development and orderly layout and use of land.
