The Division of Engineering is located on the second floor of City Hall and is responsible for housing the vast majority of maps and infrastructure construction plans within the City. We maintain current city maps of all types, including zoning maps, flood zone maps, and ward & precinct maps. We also are involved with all aspects of the City’s infrastructure, from plan reviews by residential and commercial developers, plan design for our own projects, construction inspection, and project administration and record keeping. We work with nearly every City division to provide technical assistance on their projects or mapping needs.
The City Engineer’s office is the contact for all items related to the City of Newark Zoning Code and Flood Ordinance. In addition to zoning permits, the Division of Engineering also issues demolition, use of public right-of-way, and curb cuts or driveway permits.
