(a) Any person seeking to close off more than the designated parking lane width, as established in Section 724, and more than ½ of the official sidewalk width along the boundary of the fronting property must apply for an additional temporary street occupancy permit as provided for herein. A revocable permit for additional temporary street occupancy shall not be issued unless an application therefor is made to the Director of Public Works, and a fee and a public right-of-way assessment cost, as set forth in Section 724.8, are paid. The content of applications shall be in accordance with the policies, rules and regulations of the Director of Public Works. All applications shall be on forms prescribed therefor and shall contain or be accompanied by all information required to assure the presentation of pertinent facts for proper consideration of the case. The application shall include both a reasonable estimate of the duration of construction, and an explanation of why an additional temporary street occupancy permit of the particular dimensions requested is necessary and shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable additional permit application fee of $353. Requests for extensions of the original term shall be treated as new applications except that the application fee shall be $200.
(b) No additional temporary street occupancy permit shall have a term of more than six months nor less than one month from the date of issuance. At the end of the original term or of any subsequent extension, the permittee may apply to the Director of Public Works for an extension not to exceed six months in duration. The Director of Public Works, in his or her discretion, may approve, conditionally approve, or disapprove the request for an extension. Said decision will be appealable to the Board of Appeals.
(c) Applicants for additional street space shall make a written request for such permit no sooner than 30 days prior to initiation of the proposed occupation of additional street space.
(d) Notwithstanding the time period for occupancy and permit requests specified above, an additional street space permit may be obtained on a daily basis, but in no case shall such occupancy extend beyond a 2-week term. The fee for such daily permits shall be $50 per day with no assessment cost. An applicant shall make a written request for such daily permit no sooner than 3 days prior to initiation of the proposed occupation of additional street space.
(e) Unless otherwise specified, all provisions of Sections 724et seq. shall be applicable to additional street space occupancy.
