Right of Way

The City requires a permit for anyone to perform work within the public right-of-way so that it can ensure its roads, sidewalks, trails, etc, are being used appropriately, and to maintain the rights-of-way in proper condition, and free from unnecessary encumbrances. City staff and the City Engineer also document all utility work being installed, maintained or repaired so that there is a record of the City’s infrastructure. A permit is required for any excavation or obstruction activities that occur within City right-of-way.
