Currently the UPS has multiple line items that are for the same things that are redundant and could be located in one section/place.
Construction of certain improvements that have multiple components have been listed as separate single line items as opposed to one or two line items that includes all the components.
Improvements that are commonly used or required by code are not included in the current UPS.
Currently conservations deposit amounts are listed on a 2004 letter to industry and have not been updated since then.
The new UPS is 9 pages as opposed to 52 pages for the current UPS
The new UPS eliminates many duplicate or similar line items that were unnecessary to have as a separate line item or listed under multiple categories.
The new UPS combines components of a public improvement into one or two line items. For example, the current UPS has multiple line items for as-built drawing, survey and as-built for wet & dry pond, which has now been combined into one line item.
The new UPS adds items that are commonly used but weren’t captured on the old UPS for example retaining walls over 6’, stormwater facilities…etc.
The new UPS will now incorporate residential conservation deposits to make it easily accessible and available to the public.
