A permit is required for anyone needing to perform work within city rights of way. The right of way is considered the area between the front property line on one side of the street to the front property line on the other side of the street. This area includes the street, the sidewalk, and the boulevard. The intended work must be performed by a city-approved contractor. The type of permit needed will depend on the type of work being done.
