Public Works Right of Way Services manages most activities associated with public development and use of the City's right-of-way. The public right-of-way is an area of land owned or controlled by the city for the purposes of constructing, operating and maintaining public facilities such as streets, alleys, sidewalks, bike paths for the needs of transportation, utilities and other public infrastructure.
Public Works Right of Way Services determines the required improvements and reviews plans for regulatory compliance in the areas of transportation, survey and right-of-way management. Public Works Right of Way Services provides inspection and permits for construction of private and public development projects in conjunction with the use of the City right-of-way.
