My final grading is not approved. Why can't I install a fence / pool / shed?
The Engineering Department spends a lot of time and energy to ensure that final grading is performed per the approved plan. If the final grading is not constructed per the approved plan, it will be rejected and the builder will be required to correct any deficiencies. It is very important that the homeowner does nothing to disturb their yard prior to approval of the final grading. If the yard is disturbed or altered, it becomes very difficult for the city to force the builder to correct any problems. If the disturbance is caused by the homeowner, the builder will refuse to correct the problem. We advise homeowners not to do any landscaping or install any items in their yards until the final grading survey is approved.
