Right of Way Use

Any use of the public ROW requires a permit. Some examples that require a ROW permit are:

  • Replacement or modifications to driveways;
  • Placement of temporary fencing in the right of way;
  • Temporary placement of industrial disposal bins and storage containers;
  • Parking moving vans or other vehicles in restricted parking areas.

If permit requirements are not adhered to, the City can remove anything deemed hazardous from the ROW and  recover the cost from offending parties. The Traffic Bylaw No. 7200 enables the enforcement and issuing of fines for non-compliance.
