This final requirement will trigger BWSC’s General Service Application (GSA) that will need to be completed and submitted with all supporting documentation.
Once all related work is completed, as well as the GSA with all supporting documents, BWSC will sign-off on the Form. The next step involves obtaining a Demolition Permit from the City of Boston’s Buildings and Structures Division of the Inspectional Services Department (ISD), which is located at 1010 Massachusetts Avenue, Boston.
In addition, a Street Opening Permit will more than likely be needed as well as a Traffic Management Plan. The City of Boston’s Department of Public Works issues the Street Opening Permit and the Transportation Management Plan should be submitted to the Transportation Department. Both departments are located at One City Hall Plaza, Boston.
