A portable storage device (PSD) permit is issued for temporary storage needs. To prevent long-term storage of personal items in the public right of way, PSD permits are limited to a maximum of one month. Placement of a PSD in a driveway or on private property must have approval from the Zoning Division.
- All transportation right-of-way (TROW) permits must be applied for in person.
- Permit processing requires a minimum of 72 business hours from the date of submission.
Additional Information Required
- Applicant’s name, address and phone number.
- PSD company name, address and phone number (if applicable).
- Date and number of calendar days needed.
- Exact address or location.
- Dimensions of PSD.
- Any parking meter numbers or locations affected (bus stops, taxi stands, loading zones, car share spaces, etc.) if applicable.
- The PSD must be parked against the curb and not extend into the travel lane or obstruct driveways, stop signs or fire hydrants, or be placed closer than 20 feet from street corners.
- Permittee is required at all times to sufficiently protect the PSD with the use of reflective tape and/or reflective cones at the ends and area around the storage container.
- No permit can be issued where it would conflict with a current permit holder for the same location, or any event or business in the area.
- Upon permit expiration, the permittee must immediately remove the PSD unless reapplication is made 72 hours prior to the expiration date and a new permit is issued. No permit or extension will be valid for more than one month per year.
