sidewalk permits

don’t you dare try to take up sidewalk space near me on my way to and from the grocery store: I *will* look up your public space occupancy permit and I *will* file a complaint

are you in DC and also annoyed by work happening on roads, sidewalks, alleyways and other public spaces?

look up the permit here!

then check the public space occupancy permit here!

A public space occupancy permit is separate from a construction permit. You need a permit for construction, and you need a separate permit to occupy roads so you have clearance for construction (or at least, that’s what i understand)

i am not a lawyer but i am very committed to ensuring that every public right, however small or petty, is not infringed
