Basically, for the Bridge to be built, it need a license agreement from another governmental agency in regards to encroachment. (I presume it is either a roadway or electrical zone).
That process requires a building division permit number. So this will allow the issuance of that number.
After the license is issued, and Disney has permission to build, it will then submit the actual building details required for the permit to be approved.
AKA, Government Red Tape, and a way to get past a Catch-22 of needing the license to build, but not sure what will be allowed under the license agreement.
"PROVIDING PWDS WITH A PERMIT NUMBER FOR THE ENCROACHMENT LICENSE AGREEMENT "
At a guess, the Public Works Department?
