Public Works Encroachment Permits
Any construction activity within public rights-of-way or lane closure for a prolonged period on a major street requires an encroachment permit from the Public Works Department. These permit applications can be obtained from the department at 610 Foster City Blvd. weekdays between 8 AM and 5 PM.
The City requires an encroachment permit application fee and a minimum inspection deposit of $500.00. A portion of the inspection deposit may be refunded depending on the extent of inspections required. A restoration bond may also be required with the bond value determined by the size and nature of the project.
