Right-of-Way Permitting

Forest Grove's "rights-of-way" (ROW) are sections of land set aside for public benefit. These sections include streets and sidewalks as well as land set aside for water pipes, electricity lines, and other utility infrastructure.

Our City's rights-of-way are our most valuable asset and include all the property and improvements on Forest Grove streets. The City coordinates right-of-way use among public and private users so that we can efficiently manage this large and complex resource.
