As a resident of East Palo Alto, it is very Important that you determine your property limits before you
undertake your next home improvement project. As we have suggested, a number of residents have called the
Engineering Division before undertaking costly projects in front of, or aiong side, their fronting property.

As you may be aware, the City's Right-of-Way (which includes all land which by deed, conveyance, agreement,
easement, dedication, and usage is reserved for or dedicated to the use of the general public for roads or
streets is typically 40 feet to 60 feet in width or 20 to 30 feet from the road centmllne on most residential
streets. The City reserves this area for future improvement projects such as drainage, sidewalks, roadway
Widening, utility improvement among others. If you iJlan to Encroach on the Right-of-Way, meaning going on,
over, or under, or using a right-of-way in a manner which prevents, obstructs, or interferes with the normal use
of that way, you will first need to contact Engineering Division to determine if a permi~ will be granted. Typical
encroachments include:
   1. Excavating or disturbing the rights-of-way
   2. Erecting a fence of any type, material and height within the ~ight-of-way
   3. Constructing a pathway, sidewalk, or driveway
   4. Constructing on, over, under, or within the right-of-way a culvert or other surface drainage or subsurface
      drainage facility.
   5. Constructing a pond or structure
   6. Placing a sewer pipeline, water lateral, pipe, conduit, or cable
   7. Constructing a structure, retaining wall, or similar encroachment.
   8. Placing or leaving any obstruction or impediment, Including debris boxes or storage moving bins on a
      right-of-way.

Remember, if you are building within 10 feet behind a concrete curb and gutter or 5 feet behind the sidewalk,
you are likely within the City's Right-of-way and encroaching, which will require a permit before you commence
any work. The Engineering Division will schedule a site visit with you to discuss your future project. Please give
us a call at (650) 853-3189 to set up an appointment. Please remember that if you build without a permit you
may be subject to the removal of the encroachment at your own cost.
