The Public Works Department is comprised of different divisions, each of which is responsible for various activities throughout the City.  As a Department, we are dedicated to managing and completing capital projects that improve our community, maintaining quality roads, providing the residential and development community with development review services, and improving traffic flow and safety in our City.

The staff of the Public Works Department is proud to be part of our Cityís growth and success.  We strive for the common goal of quality customer service and improving the vitality of life in Calabasas.

The Public Works Department is responsible for the design, construction, maintenance, and operation of public facilities and infrastructure within the City of Calabasas.  This requires us to respond to requests for service, coordinate our efforts with local, regional, state and federal agencies, and above all other things, to work with the community in all of our efforts.  More specifically, the Public Works Department performs several community-based functions, such as maintenance of sewer, streets, parks, transportation and water operations.
