City staff are not able to close out NRMP permits where they are unable to confirm that permanent stabilization has been achieved due to snow on the ground. Call now to schedule final inspections to avoid having to renew security letters of credit.
The Natural Resources Mangement Permit required on most construction permits requires that all soils be stablized with permanent vegetation before the permit can be closed out. In other words, all soils must have actively growing perennial vegetation (e.g. lawn grass). Seed and blanket do not qualify. In some cases, tree replacement or other landscape requirements exist. Securities in the form of letters of credit or checks cannot be returned if site conditions cannot be confirmed. This generally means that permits cannot be closed out in winter because snow obscures conditions on site. You may be required to extended letters of credit if you wait too long.
