Right of Way Permits


Permits are required for work in the right of way, including replacement of a commercial or residential driveway and installation of sprinkler systems.

The right of way is generally the area 10 feet back from the curb, toward a homeowner’s property.

Right of way permits are not required when:

  • Work is permitted under other city permits.
  • Right of way users perform routine service operations that do not require excavation.
  • Right of way users perform routine service operations that do not disrupt traffic for more than four hours.
