Frequently asked questions:
Do we need a Street Use Permit to install planters?
Yes, you should obtain a street use permit and update it annually for all planter types and locations. Submit a list of your proposed planters and poles, their location and drawings showing the container material and the type of bracket and fasteners to the Seattle Department of Transportation. You will also need to have an existing liability insurance policy that will cover up to $1,000,000 and the City must be listed as additionally insured on that policy.
Permits are also required for free standing planters.
Is there a charge for the permit?
Yes, the permit costs $101 and is good for one year. The permit is renewable for $97. There is also a field review fee of $150 that includes site plan, application, and insurance. (All permits costs are reflected as of the current fee schedule.)
Where can we get planters?
Planters can be purchased at local gardening stores or concrete furnishing/statuary shops.
