A permit is required to construct, replace, or extend a driveway or apron. Although the apron is within the right of way (ROW), construction and maintenance of the apron is the responsibility of the property owner.
A driveway apron is a permitted access to a property owners driveway through the public right-of-way. The right-of-way is owned by the Village of Buffalo Grove on Village streets and connects to the public roadway extending from the curb to the far edge of the sidewalk, or to the property line.
A completed permit application including the name, address, telephone number of the contractor installing the driveway and/or apron and the valuation of the project.
Two copies of the plat of survey noting the location and dimensions of the existing as well as the proposed driveway and/or apron (width at the garage, width at both sides of the public sidewalk, width at the street/curb and the dimensions of any expansion to the existing driveway and the length of all portions). The location of any street light, fire hydrant, B-Box and trees in the parkway must also be noted with the distance to the edge of the new apron.
