This form is to be used for three types of permit requests:

  • Encroachment Permit (Code 7-13-3, approved by the city manager, normally addressed in 2-3 weeks)
  • Non-exclusive Use of Right-of-Way (Code 7-13-4, cannot exceed five years, approved by the city manager, normally addressed in 2-3 weeks)
  • Exclusive Use of Right-of-Way (Code 7-13-5, private use that does not allow public access through the right-of-way, granted by action by the City Commission, normally requires 8-10 weeks to complete this process)

If you are completing this application to request an exclusive right-of-way use permit, the process can take 8-10 weeks to completeContact the city engineering department to ensure all documents submitted are complete and accurate to limit processing time. Incomplete applications will delay action on your request.

The exclusive use of public right-of-way is considered by the City Commission in a two-step process, each step requires public notice of a minimum of 10 days:

  1. Requires an item on a regular meeting of the Commission agenda to consider a Resolution of Intention
  2. A second commission meeting (usually two weeks following the passage of the Resolution of Intention) to hold a public hearing to consider the final passage of the resolution granting an exclusive right-of-way permit.
