Grading refers to the artificial removal or deposition of earth material, which encompasses any rock, natural soil, or their combination. It typically involves both excavation and soil placement, and is commonly employed in various construction projects, such as driveways, building pads, and site improvements. Grading also serves to restore and stabilize hillsides, slopes, and stream banks, but does not encompass regular farming practices.
A grading permit is an official authorization granted by a regulatory body to undertake grading activities. In the unincorporated regions of Sonoma County, Permit Sonoma serves as the regulatory body. The issuance of a grading permit involves a thorough assessment of the application's contents for adherence to SCC regulations.
The submission of a grading permit application is permissible by the proprietor or easement holder of the project location (easement holder), an accredited representative of the proprietor or easement holder, or any other individual with written authorization from the proprietor or easement holder.
Grading permits are necessary to uphold grading standards, mitigate risks to life and property, safeguard against flooding and drainage hazards, ensure the safety and stability of public rights-of-way and watercourses, preserve archeological and biotic resources, prevent soil loss, and prevent watercourse pollution.
Prior to commencing any grading or related work, a grading permit is mandatory, unless exempted by SCC Chapter 11. The permit is required when cut or fill exceeds 50 cubic yards, is greater than 3 feet in depth, creates a cut slope greater than 5 feet in height and steeper than 2 units horizontal to 1 unit vertical, or when fill is intended to support a structure or surcharge greater than 1 foot in depth or placed on terrain with a natural slope steeper than 15 percent. Additionally, fill placed within a Special Flood Hazard Area or the Flood-Prone Urban Area (PDF) requires a permit.
