What are the limitations of the Town's annual grading moratorium?

From October 15th to April 15th of each year, no grading work is allowed. All grading work must be winterized by providing weather protection for all exposed graded surfaces no later than November 1st of each year. Per Section 151.45(E) of the Town's Site Development Code, an applicant may apply for an exception to the Town Engineer to allow grading to commence after October 15th and before December 1st. The Town Engineer can only grant the exception request if he/she finds that no detriment is likely to occur to neighboring properties or public or private roads, that the grading can be completed within 30 days of the grant of the exception and that the site will be winterized with an erosion control plan to the satisfaction of the Town Engineer.

If you have any questions regarding the grading moratorium you can contact the Town Engineer at 650-851-6790.
