The City requires that utility work within the Right of Way (ROW) be performed by a company authorized as a public utility by the MN Public Utilities Commission (MPUC). Entities that own utilities/facilities that will remain in the ROW must complete a Registration form annually (form available below).
A right of way permit is required for any of the following:
Placement of equipment (e.g.; cabinets, pedestals, etc.)
Placement of facilities (e.g.; cable, gas, electric, fiber optic, etc.)
Obstruction of the boulevard or a driving or parking lane.
Any disturbed areas must be back-filled and stabilized (e.g.; sodded, mulched and seeded, etc.). Any damaged curb, concrete, or pavement sections must be replaced in-kind according to the original design specs and the Street Restoration Plates (PDF).
