What do I need before I submit a permit application?
You will need the following:

1. Two copies of a plan (or a sketch showing the work)

2. A bond or CD, which serves as a security deposit.

3. Evidence of insurance coverage. In many cases, a homeowner's insurance policy will have enough coverage.

4. A completed encroachment permit application.

The resource file "Encroachment Permit Procedures" contains more detailed information on the above requirements.

If you have any questions or need assistance preparing your application, contact the Engineering Division at 510-494-4700 and our staff will help you.
