Public Infrastructure Permits

Public infrastructure permits are required for construction of public improvements necessary when platting property, upgrading facilities or for a proposed development without adequate public infrastructure. View Permit application, information, and checklists.

Grading Permits

Grading permits are required for large acreage mass grading and excavations. Grading Permits can include erosion control, grading, and tree removal. Grading does not allow for flatwork (paving, sidewalks, slabs, etc.). The City of New Braunfels does not allow for conditional or temporary permits in any regard. Grading permits are required to meet the drainage requirements of the code and require stand-alone, complete plan sets and construction submittals along with drainage reports including mitigation design specific for the intended construction.
