An Encroachment Permit (PDF) is generally required for any construction within the public right-of-way, includes; but is not limited to:
Connection of a new, underground gas or water service
Replacement or repair of sidewalk
Widening of a driveway
Trenching in the street for a utility repair (i.e. sewer later repair)
Repairing or replacing a storm drain pipe through the curb
Traffic Control for all work affecting public streets
Storage containers (POD) - Collection Dumpsters
Public streets should not be used for the temporary storage of construction or landscaping materials, such as stacks of lumber, piles of sand or landscape boulders.
Please check this Moratorium List to see if there is a current moratorium for cutting or trending into the paved portion of the street.
A deposit may be required to cover the cost of repair of damaged paving as a result of the encroachment.
A transportation permit is required for vehicles or loads that exceed the maximum allowable by the California Vehicle Code (CVC) dimensions (width, length, height, and overhand). The purpose of issuing the permit is to ensure that appropriate routes are used and to keep track of large vehicles which may damage Town roads.
