Right-of-way is owned by the public for the purposes of constructing, operating, and maintaining public facilities such as streets, alleys, sidewalks, and bike paths. It is also used for utilities and other public infrastructures.
Right-of-way extends to the property lines that are typically 11-16 feet behind the curb or edge of pavement. Each street is different and must be checked before work is started.
Permits are required for all work within the right-of-way including temporary traffic control except as provided in Sec. 19-140 of the City ordinances. Replacement of driveways, plumbing repairs, or installation of a sprinkler system in the right-of-way does require a right-of-way permit.
Pursuant to Ordinance No. 2016-4556, and Ordinance No. 2016-4557 amendments to Chapter 19 of the Belton Code of Ordinances, Chapter 34 of the Unified Development and the Schedule of Fees and Charges have been approved by the City Council and affect all right-of-way permitting.
Contractors must provide a certificate of insurance and a surety bond.
