The Town's Development Engineer​ing division oversees the implementation and construction of all residential and commercial development projects.

Staff also respond to residents' concerns relating to development projects and works with the developer to address them.

Development Engineering on behalf of Engineering Services and Leisure Services oversees the Town's Design Criteria Manual which is a guiding document for development standards within the Town.

Development Engineering also administers the Town's Fill and Site Alteration By-law, which was enacted by Council in the interests of the public and protecting the environment.
