Do I need a permit for a driveway, walkway, patios, fence, and/or retaining wall?

Yes. The installation, placement, and/or replacement of any driveway, walkway, patio, fence, or retaining wall requires a Zoning Permit through the Planning Division of the Community Development Department. This applies to all surfaces, including but not limited to asphalt (traditional or permeable), concrete (traditional or permeable), pavers, and gravel. If the driveway, walkway, patio, fence, or retaining wall is replacing something that is already existing you still need a permit to make sure the new/replaced feature meets all current codes.
