You can report a stand-alone or retaining wall that is bulging, cracked, defective, or inadequate. Violations are issued when appropriate.
A stand-alone wall acts as a partition or divider. Retaining walls run along the back of a property and separate land.
The No-Penalty Retaining Wall Inspection Program for this year begins on August 24 and runs through September 18. This program allows private property owners in the City to request a free visual safety inspection of their retaining walls, without the threat of receiving violations for the duration of the program. Property owners will need to provide contact information so the Department of Buildings can contact them to schedule an inspection.
