Town Building Ordinance 152.096 addresses slope stability. Paragraph B states that, “…Any stabilization or retention system (walls, piling and the like) applications where the ground surface slope is greater than 20 degrees shall have a minimal design life of 40 years, and the design shall be approved by an Indiana-registered professional engineer. (`99 Code, ' 10-230) (Ord. 643, passed 3-2-98; Am. Ord. 717, passed 8-13-07)”
Ordinance 152.096(B) affects many lots in Town. Ryan will explain how properly designed and built retaining walls are an asset to your property and have a life expectancy well in excess of 50 years.
The regular Plan Commission meeting will be held immediately following the presentation and Q&A.
