The Municipal Contractor License is issued through the Public Works Department and is required to perform construction in street right of way.
The City’s right of way/infrastructure work has different standards/requirements than codes followed for building construction. These two licenses require different areas of knowledge for construction. The Municipal Contractor License also requires a bond in addition to liability and workers compensation insurance. These licenses and requirements help to assure that the contractor is qualified to perform the different types of work and comply with the City codes/standards & specifications/requirements for work in the COWR.

Yes. A Short Term Revocable Permit Agreement is required. Along with the Short Term Revocable Permit Agreement, a Certificate of Insurance showing proof of Liability Coverage is required. Temporary Permits will only be considered if there is NO alternative location on the property (including driveways) to place the POD/Dumpster Container and the POD/Dumpster does not create an unsafe condition. Contact (303) 205-7615 for further questions or select the link below and select Short Term Revocable Permit Agreement.
No. The building permit does not cover work to be done in the City right of way, (Curb, gutter and sidewalk, storm drains, etc). Public improvements required with the construction of a new development/building require a Right of Way Construction Permit. This permit is issued through the Public Works Department. You must have a current Municipal Contractor License to apply for a Right of Way Construction Permit. 303-205-7615
Submittal of a permit application is required to close the street for traditional block parties. A petition is required for non-traditional block parties (see Policy for details/definition). Block Parties will be considered for local neighborhood streets only. The City staff ask that the permit application be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to the event. The permit application will be reviewed and if approved a copy will be mailed to the applicant in addition to notifying Emergency Response personnel of the closure. The Operations Division will also be notified to schedule delivery of road closure signs. Application and petition forms will be found on the Website.
