Policy Changes for Right of Way Construction Permits

Effective April 1, 2019, right of way permits for driveways, culverts, and sidewalks will be issued through Development Services. They may be applied for in person or online. Plans must be submitted electronically for review and should typically be reviewed within five working days. This will not affect new construction as the right of way permits will be a part of the review of new projects and are to be included in the building permit. For right of way permits issued after April 1, 2019 that require sidewalk and drive-approach inspections, the inspections will be scheduled through and performed by the Building Division.
