General Municipal Servicing Standards

General Municipal Servicing Standards

The General Municipal Servicing Standards (GMSS) are intended to provide specific guidelines to assist the Municipality and the Developer in the design, preparation and submission of plans and specifications for construction of municipal improvements and systems (roadways, water distribution systems, low-pressure/gravity sewer systems, storm water management facilities) that shall meet the servicing requirements for commercial, industrial and residential development within the Municipality.
The GMSS have been developed to:

i)    ensure that the Municipality is provided with a quality product that will meet an acceptable long-term life expectancy while maintaining cost efficiency and practicality so as not to prohibit land development;
ii)    minimize the maintenance requirements associated with land development.

Additional to the guidelines, accessible through the link above, are drawings and diagrams referenced in the standards – those diagrams are listed below:
