The Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining 87 miles of roadway in the City of Campbell. For scheduling preventative maintenance work and to keep track of the condition of each roadway, the city utilizes a computerized pavement management system (PMS), which stores the condition data of all of our streets. This computer system has a module that predicts the proper time to perform the appropriate preventative maintenance work on each street utilizing the most current condition data for that street. Based on the amount of funding that is available each year, the PMS will recommend the most cost effect pavement maintenance program for the streets that year.
To find out more about the city’s Pavement Management Program, please contact the Public Works Engineering Division at 408-866-2150 or email us.

The city will remove street trees only if they are dead or diseased beyond saving. Street tree removals requested by adjacent property owners for any other reason are allowed only in very limited circumstances. In most cases, these requests require the approval of the Parks and Recreation Commission and, if granted, require that the adjacent property owner arranges and pays for the removal and replacement of the tree with a large, 24-inch box tree.
To discuss street trees, please email us, or call the Maintenance Division at 408-866-2145 between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30p.m., Monday through Friday, and ask to speak to the Park Maintenance supervisor.

Assuring that the curbed area is kept free of litter and debris is also essential. Since residential areas are swept once a month, it is important that cars are not parked along the curbed area during the scheduled sweep day. Allowing the street sweeper access to the curb and gutter to remove debris, assists in the mitigation of water.
If there are low hanging branches above the curbed area which prevent the street sweeper access to the curb, please contact the City of Campbell Public Works Maintenance Division at 408-866-2145, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and provide an address of the location along with your name and telephone number. You can also contact our office by email.
A resident may contact the City and complete a request for an inspection of a sidewalk and/or curb and gutter. If the displaced area meets the City’s criteria for repair, the lift will be ground down or ramped. If this is not feasible, the flag of sidewalk will be removed and replaced with asphalt.
To report an uplifted sidewalk and or curb and gutter please contact the City of Campbell Public Works Maintenance Division at 408-866-2145, between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and provide an address of the location along with your name and telephone number, or email us.

We are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please note that any work done within the public right of way requires an encroachment permit.
