Encroachment Permits

Requirements & Fees

Encroachment permits are required any time work is being performed in the public right-of-way, or if the work will affect the right-of-way, such as installing a new driveway. Fees vary depending on the type of permit needed and how extensive the work is. The fees are collected solely to cover the cost of staff administrative and inspection time associated with the specific permit. Master Fee Schedule
