The Engineering Division reviews proposed construction projects in the corporate limits of the City of Claremore to ensure the plans meet minimum standards set by the City, State, and other governing entities. This review is of both capital improvement projects (those funded by the City) and private development projects.

For capital improvement projects, typical responsibilities include selection of design consultants, coordination with other governmental agencies, plan review, budgeting, bidding, project management, and construction observation. For private development projects, the role is primarily limited to plan review - ensuring that the health and safety of the citizens are protected as the City continues to grow.

Related responsibilities include regulating development within the FEMA-designated floodplains, mapping services, and addressing.
