The Planning Map Series is intended to provide a generalized geographic context for a moderately large area, using a scale of 1:9600 (1 inch on the map = 800 feet on the ground). Available Themes include: Critical Areas, Street Network, Topography & Drainage, Public Facilities, Present Land Use. Each theme, with the exception of Present Land Use is also available as a single preprinted, City Wide map.

Topography & Drainage
topography and drainage map This standard topographical map is an excellent resource for a general view of slope and drainage information.

The City's drainage infrastructure is shown along with elevation contours at 10-ft intervals. These contours were created from aerial photography that was flown in March 1993. Numbers indicate elevation in feet. Parks and streams are also included for reference.
