Public Works Permits

Encroachment Permits

The City issues encroachment permits for all work performed on the public right-of-way by private developers, contractors or utility companies.

For placement of a dumpster, refuse bin, or temporary moving pod on the City's right-of-way, a Public Property Encroachment Permit and payment in the amount of $75.00 is required. The City of Laguna Niguel has an exclusive Franchise Agreement with CR&R Environmental Services, Inc. and only CR&R may be used for dumpster placement on public right-of-way throughout the City.

If a resident wishes to utilize their private driveway to place a dumpster, refuse bin, or temporary moving pod, an Encroachment Permit will not be required.

Residents & Utility Companies may apply for an Encroachment Permit online by clicking on the link to eTRAKiT.
