During the past year the SDOT Street Use Street Improvement Permitting (SIP) Section has implemented many changes in the processes and requirements for obtaining approval of Street Improvement Plans. Process improvements have spanned SIP design guidance, formal review, correction cycles, plan approval, and permit issuance processes. In 2010 the SDOT SIP pre-construction, construction, inspection, and project close-out processes and requirements will be modified.
On July 6, 2010, changes to the SIP close-out process will be implemented. Workshops on these changes and a review of the entire Street Improvement Permit process will be conducted on Thursday, June 10, 2010 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and on Monday, June 14, 2010 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Please call (206) 733-9876 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for one of the workshops.
