Attractive Public Right-of-Way Treatment

As I was walking on the 600 block of Quebec Place the other day I came across  this attractive treatment of the Public Right-of-Way. It looked to be sand-set pavers with a space created for the tree box.

I know that many people do plantings in this area between the sidewalk and the street, but this is the first time that I can think of that I’ve seen a hard-scape installed by a resident.

According to the DDOT Web site, Public Space is defined as all the publicly owned property between the property lines on a street and includes, but is not limited to, the roadway, tree spaces, sidewalks and alleys. This would place this improvement within public space.

This leads me to believe that a Public Space Permit was required to pave this easement. Does anyone know how hard it is to get a permit to build something like this?

    not sure about the permit, but it’s nice to see that the surface is still permeable (somewhat, at least). have you followed up with ddot to find out more about this? or talked with the homeowner?
