City of Little Rock Land Alteration Regulations

City Of Little Rock   
Urban | Suburban |
The purpose of this ordinance is to prevent sedimentation and erosion from clearings within Little Rock, which has a number of hillside neighborhoods. The ordinance was developed and written by a citizens group and places limits on tree clearing and grading, requires a landscaping plan and that a qualified superintendent be on site during all land clearing activities. Additionally, the ordinance requires that all but the building permit be issued before approval of the grading permit and that construction is ‘imminent.’
