CAD Standards Manual

 The CAD Drafting Standards for the City of Nanaimo have been incorporated into the Manual of Engineering Standards and Specifications (MOESS) as Section 1.2 and form part of the Subdivision Bylaw. The CAD Standards are for use by engineering professionals designing infrastructure within the City Right-of-Ways, such as roads, utilities, and land development projects. This includes capital works undertaken by City of Nanaimo forces or its agents.

The CAD template is compatible with the 2013 and 2015 release of Autodesk Civil 3D.  The official design documents are available for download below.
