Servicing Agreement and Drawing Approval Process
Pilot Program Underway
Development Coordination has recently launched a Pilot Program for the review and approval of Engineering and Landscape Drawings.
The intent of the program is to improve the response timelines for review and approval by trialing alternative review methods, establishing clear expectations, defining performance criteria and performance measurements, for consultants, developers and City staff.
Read the pilot program overview and description for more detailed information on how the program will work.

Servicing Agreement Process
The Development Coordination section in the Sustainable Development Department is responsible for preparing and administering servicing agreements.
The Servicing Agreement and Engineering Drawing Review Process flowchart outlines the various steps of preparing a servicing agreement.
Once the requirement for a servicing agreement has been identified, the developer must enter into the servicing agreement prior to construction of any municipal improvements or infrastructure on City-owned land or City right-of-way, or on lands that will become City property upon registration of a subdivision plan.
The design and specifications of municipal improvements and infrastructure to be constructed are to be shown on detailed engineering drawings prepared by an engineering consultant retained by the developer.
All related City departments and EPCOR will then review and approve the engineering drawings to ensure the design conforms to City of Edmonton Design and Construction Standards.
The engineering drawings are ultimately signed by the Development Coordination section on behalf of the City departments and EPCOR.
The approved engineering drawings will form part of the servicing agreement. Once the engineering drawings are signed, the developer can then request the servicing agreement.
The purpose of the servicing agreement is to identify the municipal improvements to be constructed, along with the responsibilities of both the developer and the City once the improvements are completed. These responsibilities include construction, inspections, approval of the municipal improvements and short and long term maintenance.
The servicing agreement also identifies any fees and assessments the developer is required to pay.
In order to obtain registration of a subdivision plan which requires a servicing agreement, the developer must have an executed servicing agreement as well as approved engineering drawings.
Similarly, for a development permit that requires a servicing agreement, the developer must have an executed servicing agreement and approved engineering drawings in order for the development permit to be valid, and prior to beginning the building permit process.
