    About Licenses:

    In the Real Property Services Division, Licenses are used to maintain encroachments along Pima County owned roads and other subsequent parcels. For Example, if an entrance wall of a Homeowner's Association were to encroach a Pima County owned road, the owner or developer would need to submit a License Application along with its subsequent fee.

    If a requested License for Encroachment includes Landscaping of any kind, please refer to Pima County Department of Transportation's Landscape Manual

    If a License already exists within our department and it has expired, the responsible party for the encroachment would need to submit a License Renewal Application along with its subsequent fee. 

    The above mentioned forms are provided below:
