Right of Way Use Permit Application


Underbrush requirements:

An Underbrush Permit is speaking to the removal of underbrush only, no tree removal or earth-work allowed. With an issued permit all trees under 3.5 inches in diameter at breast height (DBH = 54 inches above grade) are allowed to be removed and all palms under 4.5 feet of clear trunk (clear trunk is from grade to first originating frond) are allowed to be removed.

This is the only permit that we will issue on a stand-alone lot without intention of development.

An Aerial photo from from Sarasota County Property Appraiser or Survey indicating all the trees present on the property along with the Right of Way Use Permit is required for submittal.
