The City of Springfield has created a Public Improvement Plan Process Guide to assist Springfield developers, engineers, City staff and others in the development and plan review of Public Improvement Plans (PIP) as required by the Subdivision Regulations, Land Development Code, or other requirements of City Code and any applicable laws and regulations.
This document is a reference tool intended to help standardize and clarify the process. For full detailed design requirements and specifications, please review the technical manuals provided below.
The following three technical manuals outline the requirements for Public Improvements constructed in the City of Springfield, Missouri.

2021 updates made to the General Conditions, Design Standards and Technical Specifications manuals of the Design Guide for Public Improvements will take effect Oct. 1, 2021. These changes have been developed with input from the City's partners in the design and contracting community and generally consist of minor updates to language to provide clarity and consistency across all standards and requirements.
