The "Public Right-of-Way" generally includes the area from your front property line to the property line across the street. Any construction within this area is restricted to licensed contractors only.

The following are examples of work allowed in the public right-of-way, and not requiring a permit. If in doubt, please call to (310) 618-5898 for assistance.

  • Cleaning of leaves, lawn cuttings or debris, produced in the maintenance of the property

  • Installation and maintenance of sprinkler systems, plants, trees, and removable bricks/pavers in the parkway.

This is all done in an effort to keep the City of Torrance uniform and beautiful. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated in holding up our great standards.
