§ 151.75  PURPOSE.
   Pursuant to G.S. § 160A-296, the Town of Laurel Park has the authority to regulate the use of public streets, sidewalks, alleys and other public passages within its corporate limits. A right-of-way encroachment agreement is required for the installation of non-standard item(s) within a town-maintained street right-of- way, sidewalk or parking lot by a private individual, group, business, or homeowner's/business association. A non-standard item is one not installed by the Public Works Department in the exercise of its duties and responsibilities, which conforms to standards in the NCDOT Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, the Public Utilities Department, or by utility franchise holders approved by the town. Town approval of encroachments is necessary to ensure that there is no adverse impact to public safety or future roadway or utility needs. Encroachment agreements are required for all new and existing encroachments. If an encroachment agreement is not obtained, the encroachment is subject to removal.
