image of Resedential Retain wall

A permit is required to install a retaining wall if the height of the wall measured from the bottom of the footing to the top of the wall is over 48 inches, unless supporting a surcharge. A permit application for a retaining wall installed on the private property line must include a letter of approval from the adjacent property owner. Occasionally, lot conditions require approvals from other agencies such as easement holders, or homeowner associations. Any Retaining Wall installed within the County right of way will not be permitted and will be required to be removed. A retaining wall is considered an accessory structure if it exceeds the height of 6' 6”.
