Do I need an encroachment permit?

Encroachment permits are required if you plan to do any construction work in the sidewalk area, in an easement, on city owned property (median islands, parks, city facilities) or in the street. Common reasons you’ll need one:

  • Utility saw-cuts
  • Excavation
  • News stands
  • Bicycle racks
  • Sidewalk dining
  • Debris boxes
  • Fences/walls
  • Construction staging
