Fire Safety - reviews fire sprinklers, alarms, and other suppression systems, emergency lighting and evacuation plans.

Community Code Compliance - reviews Construction Mitigation Plan, Limits of Disturbance, and Erosion Control.

Engineering - reviews work within the public right-of-way, utilities, drainage, and grading.
