5. Permits & Approvals

Grading & Right-of-Way Permit Issuance

If your plans were submitted on D-sheets (24" x 36"), then your mylars have been approved and signed by the City Engineer. If your plans were submitted on Construction Plans (11" x 17"), then all disciplines have "signed-off" on the plans.

For issuance of a right-of-way permit on a Construction Plan (DS-3179) (PDF), call (619) 446-5063 to find out exactly what remaining fees are due and to schedule an appointment for permit issuance.
