Paint the Pavement is a volunteer-led program that allows you and your neighbours to come together and create art on a public street.

For a community to participate in the Paint the Pavement Program, approval is required from The City of Calgary for artwork and location, and all required permits must be obtained.

The process

Apply for the program and permit

Once you register for a myID, you will be able to log into ePermits to apply. Select Street Use permit, subcategory “other.”

If you need help or additional explanation when using the ePermits website, please see the ePermit frequently asked questions.

Permits are issued at the discretion of the Traffic Engineer, as per the Streets Bylaw 20M88.

Timelines

The City requires up to two weeks to respond to the initial request and up to two weeks to review and provide feedback on the components. If the proposal is incomplete or requires modifications, this timeline may be extended. Remember it is your responsibility to ensure you have enough time to make adjustments, if necessary.

After your location is reviewed you will be contacted by a City representative to discuss next steps, which include:

  • Artwork and Paint approvals
  • Petitioning Affected Residents and Engaging the Community Association
  • Waivers and Insurance
  • Traffic control requirements

Program costs

  • Street Use Permit (each day during the painting activity)
  • Traffic control setup fees
  • Cost of materials, artwork design, etc.
