Engineering and Inspections
New sidewalk along San Patel Drive

The engineering department was established to manage all engineering design and inspection of residential and commercial projects within Liberty County and each municipality (Hinesville, Flemington, Midway, Riceboro, Allenhurst, Walthourville, and Gum Branch). The engineering department is staffed by Liberty Consolidated Planning Commission.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the LCPC engineering department is “to provide sound guidance for the best engineering solution, implementation of ordinances, operational standard procedures, and best management practices from the design stage to construction stage of each project”. Our goal is also “to ensure all developments within Liberty County comply with rules, regulations, and ordinances, and to assist the citizens of Liberty County with best practices for their property development improvements upon request”.
