Public Works issues permits related to construction impacting public streets and sidewalks, as well as sewer and stormwater infrastructure and parks.
If you are a contractor looking for assistance related to the permit application process, please see our Contractor Resources.
If you would like assistance related to possible noncompliance at construction sites (ie. working without a permit, working outside of permitted hours, poor site management), please contact a Public Works' Utilities Inspector: Edward Chaisson at 617.349.4875/ firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul Almeida at 617.349.6953/ email@example.com.
Please note that the Inspectional Services Department issues permits related to construction on private property.
