Encroachment Permit
An Encroachment Permit is required for all proposed work in a city right-of-way or easement. Requirements will vary for each permit, but in general, will require an 81/2" x 11" drawing of the proposed work, a completed encroachment permit application, a $190 or $415 permit fee, depending on the type of work, and a security deposit in the form of cash, certified check, letter of the credit, or Surety Bond. The amount of the deposit will be determined by the city depending on the extents of the proposed work. Bonding requirements are also described under City Municipal Code section, 12.32.030, "security deposit."
Encroachment Agreement
An Encroachment Agreement is required for any type of major private improvements in the public right of way and must be approved by the City Council. The agreement requires a detailed plan showing the proposed encroachment. A $1455 application fee is required and will be used to pay the full cost of staff and/or consultant expenses. Should costs exceed $1455, the applicant shall be responsible for payment prior to approval of the permit.
