Note: Engineering Design Criteria Manual [EDCM] - Revision Process

Transportation Engineering staff regulates the public Rights-of-Way within the City of Sarasota. Public Right-of-Way refers to the area of land dedicated for public use, located between parcels of privately owned land. These include streets, alleys, parkways, sidewalks, drainage facilities, and other infrastructure. The Right-of-Way is typically dedicated for pedestrian and vehicular movement but can be used for other purposes such as the placement of landscaping, signage, public art, lighting and the placement of private and public utility equipment, both above and below ground. A Right-of-Way permit or Encroachment Agreement issued from the City is required in order to construct or place structures or objects in, or otherwise blocking access to, the public Right-of-Way.
