Public Works Permits
The Public Works Department issues permits for work or activities that occur within the City right-of-way. This includes:
- Encroachment Permits
- Haul Permits
- Transportation Permits
- Email PW Permits your Completed Applications
Before any construction occurs within the City right-of-way, an encroachment permit must be approved and issued. The purpose of an encroachment permit is to ensure that construction complies with City standards and that traffic safety is maintained during construction. The following is a list of some typical activities within the right-of-way that require an encroachment permit.
- Driveway apron construction/modification
- Area drain/curb core to drain a yard to the gutter
- Utility maintenance
- New construction
- Activities that require traffic control within City roadways
Only licensed contractors are permitted to do construction under an encroachment permit.
Projects that require a prolonged duration of hauling materials (dirt, construction equipment, etc...) using City roads require a haul permit. The purpose of the haul permit is to ensure that the materials being hauled comply with applicable City requirements (if any) and that the haul route has the least impact on City roads and traffic.
Oversized loads that must be transported on or through City roads require a Transportation Permit. The purpose of this permit is to ensure that the vehicle load (width, height, and weight) comply with applicable City requirements and that the route does not adversely impact City infrastructure.
