Information

The site plan must show the location of the proposed driveway. The right-of-way permit application is only required if the driveway requires a curb cut or other work in the public right-of-way. Driveways must be at least 10 feet wide and must be at least 1 foot from any side or rear property line. Paved parking areas in front yards cannot exceed 20% of the front yard. Driveways and parking areas cannot violate minimum green space requirements for a lot. Gravel and/or loose stones are not acceptable "paving" materials.

If there is any damage caused by work in the public right-of-way, the applicant will be responsible for the restoration. All restoration work in the right-of-way must be approved by the Department of Public Works.

The applicant is responsible to level the driveway to the existing public sidewalks (if applicable) to prevent tripping hazards.

Any work which involves the City's Right-of-Way (aprons, sidewalks) must be inspected by Public Works prior to it being installed.
