Hi everyone!  I'm interesting in learning the steps I need to take on installing a driveway.  I was told I need to get a permit from the city...??  I'm looking in Jersey City.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!

I'm not sure if installing a new driveway requires a permit. Best is to call the city and ask. If not, the contractor you hire should be able to tell you as well.

Good Luck and keep us posted of your experience!!

i wanted to repair the driveway. I called the building and traffic departments. if the repair would not blog the traffic, i would need to pick up a permit from the city office. otherwise, i have to pay for a police office come on site.
