DRIVEWAYS

BASIC INFORMATION

  • A development permit is required in order to build a driveway. Please include with the driveway application a plot plan of the driveway including the measurements.
  • All driveway plans need to be approved by the developer.
  • All driveways are to be finished with an appropriate hard surface of concrete, asphalt or paving stone. Please note:  no asphalt is allowed in Bower West Phase 111.
  • All swales need to be staked by an engineer to ensure the proper grades are maintained.  For the Subdivisions of Fairway, Emerald Creek and Bower West, please call Great Plains Leaseholds (306) 525-9516 to arrange for their engineer to stake the swale.
  • For the Subdivisions of Fairway, Emerald Creek and Bower West the driveway entrance shall not exceed 24 feet with an allowable 4 foot flare on each side.  Driveways are not permitted to meet the side yard property line.  There must be a two foot separation of non-driveway to provide for proper drainage.  Driveways must be completed within two years after completion of the home.
  • For the Subdivisions of McKenzie Pointe, McKenzie Landing and McKenzie Lane the driveway shall not exceed 24 feet with an allowable 4 foot flare on each side.  Driveways must be completed within two years after completion of the home.  Please call Gary Schmidt (Public Works Manager) at (306) 522-3848 before you proceed with your driveway plans.  The Town must ensure the grades are proper before you can proceed.

DRIVEWAY PROCESS

  1. Have driveway plan approved by the developer.
  2. Submit Driveway Development Application along with plot plan to the Town Office.
  3. Have swale staked by engineer.
  4. The Town will need to locate cleanouts and curb stops prior to any driveway work.  (This will be inspected by the Town as soon as the permit and plot plan are submitted to the Town).
  5. Call for site inspection prior to installing rebar (once framing is completed).  This is vital to allow Town Staff to inspect that the water curb stop is functional and is set to elevation.
  6. Town staff will inform property owner or contractor of the driveway of any adjustments required for the curb stop.

e.g. – curb stop bent, curb stop must be 3” from finished grade elevation.

(Note: some curb stops may be outside of the driveway work, but must be inspected at the time the driveway is done).

  1. Home owners must ensure driveway contractor obtains a Business License from the Town of White City.
