WINTER STREET EXCAVATION MORATORIUM TO END ON APRIL 13, 2020

The Engineering Services Division is terminating the Winter Construction moratorium for excavations within the City right-of-way effective Monday April 13, 2020 at 8 AM.  Contractors interested in obtaining Street Excavation Permits should apply as soon as possible and applications must be submitted in accordance with the City’s Excavation Permit Regulation. Permit applications and the regulations are available on the Engineering page of the City’s website at http://concordnh.gov/429/Engineering-Permits-Fees.  Permit applications must be received a minimum of four days prior to the proposed excavation. Once issued and approved, the permit term is for thirty days and the permit must be renewed before the end of the term, if the work is not complete within the 30 days. Since most of the Engineering Division staff are working remotely as a precautionary measure in response to the COVID19 stay-at-home order, we ask that you submit your application and fee by mail or in a sealed envelope marked “Attention City Engineering Office” by placing it in the drop box in the main entrance of City Hall.  If the permit application includes large plans, use the table drop off at the Code Office at 37 Green Street.  It is also strongly encouraged that you email a scanned copy of the application to engineering@concordnh.gov.

Excavation Permits will not be issued prior to April 13, 2020.

Engineering permit application approvals may take up to 7 business days to process, so please submit them well in advance of you anticipated start date. Approval is contingent on receipt of payment.
