Utility Plan Review and Inspection

Utility (formally known as non-City utility) permits: In order to ensure public safety and mobility, activities in the public rights-of-way (ROW) must be permitted per Glendale City Code. A permit is used to grant permission to work in the public ROW under certain conditions, standards, fees, and regulations.

The Engineering team is pleased to announce that we are transitioning to an online form for submission of Right-of-Way Permit Applications. This new form is designed to save users time and money, and allow the department to respond quickly and more effectively to developments throughout the city.

Users can access the form here: Permit Application for Utility Construction in Public Right of Way (smartsheet.com). Please use this form to provide pertinent details about the project and to upload plan drawings. When the application has been approved, engineering staff will email you the approved permit.

If you have any questions about this new process, please contact the Engineering team at 623-930-3630.

Thank you!

City of Glendale Rehabilitated Streets

The City of Glendale adopted a Pavement Preservation Ordinance, Ordinance No. 021-73 in October 2021, that governs the use of streets and public rights-of-way in order to preserve street pavements. The Ordinance seeks to preserve pavements by restricting cuts and excavations in pavements that have been recently resealed, constructed, reconstructed, or resurfaced. In an effort to ensure street pavements are preserved, the department seeks permittees to coordinate their pavement cuts with the city so that all work is done simultaneously, and the pavement is not excavated or cut more than once within a twelve-month period, and (in accordance with Sec. 30-83) not within two (2) years after completion of street construction, reconstruction or renovation.

The Pavement Cut Application form can be accessed here: Pavement Cut Permit Application. Please refer to the Pavement Cut Information File for more information on the permitting process.

The following City of Glendale Rehabilitated Streets Map has been provided to show locations of pavement cut restrictions in place and what types of treatment have been applied.
