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.
This year's No-Penalty Retaining Wall Inspection Program will begin on May 15, 2016 and end on June 25, 2016. 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.
