Right of Entry

A Right-of-Entry (ROE) is required to access city-owned parcels and the right-of-entry to the right-of-way (ROE_ROW) is required for access to City rights-of-way. These permits are required for any environmental or geotechnical activities on City-owned property. Other activities may also require ROE. If you are unsure, you may contact Environmental Affairs for a determination.

Documents that must be uploaded include:

  • the application form
  • a detailed scope of work
  • Detailed site map, including locations of all borings, MW, streets, etc.
  • Current Certificate of Insurance and associated additional insured endorsements for CGL, auto, and pollution liability

These documents are for the consultant who will be conducting the onsite work. Application fees can be paid for through the Accela portal.
