It is recognized that there are presently existing in the City objects which encroach upon City-owned property, streets, sidewalks, right-of-way and other public places which constitute a danger to the health and safety of persons and property. It is also recognized that many encroachments on public property do not constitute any danger to persons or property and are beneficial to both the property owner and the City and therefore should be allowed, subject to conditions appropriate to each situation. The purpose of this Article is to provide a procedure for the authorization of encroachments by the issuance of permits where such encroachments are beneficial and do not constitute a danger to the public and to abate and cause to be removed all other encroachments that may now or in the future exist to be discovered to exist.
