Utility Policy and Franchise Application

Metro Public Works & Assets is proposing an update to the current Utility Policy, last revised May 2017. The proposed Utility Policy incorporates the Right-of-Way Guide, which addresses permitting for accessible parking zones, loading zones, and temporary encroachments for dumpster and street furniture.

Public Works & Assets would like to hear from all users that may be impacted by the proposed changes. The goal is to have a final policy that protects the public without burdening the stakeholders working within the right-of-way. Submit your comments.

The public comment period will end October 2, 2019 at 11:59PM.
