*Driveway permits are free of charge.  A permit is needed if changes will be made to the driveway footprint. Highways staff will inspect the proposed driveway plans and confirm that the changes are in accordance with County Code.  Permits are not required for regular repairs and maintenance to the existing driveway.

**Please note, regular sidewalk maintenance is generally the responsibility of the abutting property owner, per the County Code. The Bureau of Highways is responsible for sidewalk repair if there was damage due to the roots of County-owned street trees, or if damage occurred during a County utility project.
