Are upgrades to your driveway on your to-do list? Keep in mind all driveway construction—including new construction, repairs, replacement, or expansion—requires a driveway permit. Planning and Engineering staff are available to answer questions about what is needed from contractors and homeowners to get permits.

Permits are required in order to ensure safety to homeowners, construction workers and the traveling public while the driveway is constructed. The permit also allows oversight to protect the investment on existing roadways, curbs and sidewalks made with taxpayer funding and helps to minimize taxpayer costs on future projects.

To apply for a driveway permit or for other information, visit or call 952-563-8920.
