A building permit is not required, BUT most driveways require a right-of-way permit which is issued by the Public Works Department. Driveway connections to the street look different throughout the City--some driveways have curb and gutter, some connect to asphalt, and some have to consider road side ditches. Driveways have both minimum and maximum widths and required separation from street intersections. Many of these design requirements are in Section 26-501.F.
