I am an owner of a new "patio home" in a fourplex, our neighborhood is old and the streets are narrow. Even with all the new construction changing the neighborhood, the city does not see fit to widen the streets so there is limited street parking!
There is a drainage ditch that runs next to our shared concrete driveway, directly in front of my patio home. I need some advice on how to have it filled in to create a parking space and what the average cost would be. Do I need to have them use a conduit and dirt? Or if this is even possible?
Contact the city street department for their specs. You should be able to fill the drainage ditch after using an approved-sized drain line of tile (concrete sections, etc. or whatever they allow). They might do the work at cost, or they may allow you to do it. You will need a permit and inspection in any case, I would assume.
