Why do I need a right-of-way permit?

Obtaining a permit ensures that all new work conducted within the City’s ROW meets all applicable regulations and does not interfere with existing above or below ground infrastructure, or pose a danger to the general public or the individuals performing the work. Permits also ensure that grass and other landscaping is restored to the same or better conditions as before the work was performed. Lastly, the City uses permit data to update its records on what exists in the ROW to avoid unnecessary or unforeseen costs during emergencies and routine maintenance.
