The Temporary Use Permit Performance Bond ($1,000 or $5,000) must be filed with the City of Tucson in certain cases to use land or buildings temporarily. Jet guarantees the restoration of the site to a condition that meets the City’s standards indicated in the Unified Development Code (UDC) Section 4.11.
Jet cuts out the middleman, brokers and agents, leveraging efficiencies from a streamlined process to offer the lowest prices in the market.
The cost of the Temporary Use Permit Bond starts as low as $100. Rates are subject to a credit check and can increase based on credit history and the bond limit. The chart below indicates the preferred rates available.

The bond limit for a Temporary Use Permit Bond is split into two options based on what the site is used for:
The City of Tucson uses the Temporary Use Permit Bond to ensure that the land used will be returned to its original condition. It is a licensing requirement for the temporary use permit, which is needed in certain circumstances listed in the Unified Development Code (UDC) Section 4.11.1. Temporary building or land use is permitted in one or more of the following circumstances:

No, the Temporary Use Permit Bond cannot be cancelled. The City of Tucson will hold the bond in effect until the site has been cleared by an inspector. Then, you and Jet will be released from the liability of the bond.
The Temporary Use Permit Bond remains in effect until the City of Tucson releases it. The temporary use permit is issued for one year and you must return the site to the condition it was in prior to its temporary use within 15 days of the expiration of the permit. A written request can be made for a 1-year extension of the permit. After inspection of the premises, the City will release the bond to you.
The Temporary Use Permit Bond helps the City guarantee the recovery of the original state of a site that uses a building or land temporarily. This indicates the removal of any temporary buildings or improvements and stabilizing, grading, or reseeding the land as needed. You have up to 15 days after the expiration of the temporary use permit to abide by these conditions before an inspector is sent from the City to check out the site.
If you do not pass the inspection, a claim can be made by either the City or any person that is damaged by your failure to comply with the permit stipulations and vacate the premises. The City can draw from the bond to bring the premises into compliance, but the bond will remain active until the full amount of the bond has been paid out or the City will release the obligation of the bond.
If there is an issue with your ability to comply with the temporary use permit stipulations, the City will notify you and Jet of its intent to collect from the bond before it actually withdraws. It may be possible to bring the premises into compliance before the claim has been filed.
If a claim is filed on the Temporary Use Permit Bond, you most likely have received the City’s notice of intent to withdraw from the bond and did not adjust performance to fall in line with the permit. Jet is obligated to respond to the claimant within 10 days of the initiation of the claim. An investigation can last up to 30 days where Jet will gather information from both parties (you should be honest during this). Usually claims filed by the City have enough evidence to conclude quickly. Jet will pay out the claim within 30 days of receiving an acceptable proof of loss, but you aren’t off the hook — you must pay Jet back in the amount of the claim.
In addition to the Temporary Use Permit Bond, you may need an Arizona Contractor License Bond if you are doing business as a contractor within the state. The bond can be held in an amount of $5,000 up to $100,000 to provide coverage for the state and customers against a contractor’s licensing violations.
