Will I be charged a fee for my encroachment permit if I am not selected for the program, and choose to perform the repairs outside the program with a contractor?

No, there will not be a fee charged for the encroachment permit associated with your repair. For all sidewalk repair work in San Rafael, property owners or contractors will be required to apply for an encroachment permit, however the normal encroachment permit fee ($246) will not apply. 

If a property owner is only doing driveway repair or driveway apron work (no sidewalk repair included), the standard encroachment permit fee ($246) will apply.
