What the City does with your request

  2. The homeowner or applicant will receive a Lot Grading Inspection Report indicating that the property's lot grading is passed or failed.

Note: After the Final Grade Approval is issued, it is the homeowner's responsibility to maintain the surface grades in perpetuity. The City of Edmonton may at any time, require maintenance or enforcement of repairs on the lot grading if alterations or settlements result in lot grading problems.
