Land-disturbing activities are a major sign of a growing community. The City of Monroe has been delegated the authority of issuing grading permits for such activities on sites that are located within the jurisdictional limits of Monroe, including the City’s extraterritorial jurisdictional areas. Sites disturbing areas equal to or greater than 12,000 sq. ft. (commercial) or one acre (residential) must obtain a grading permit and post a bond. A performance bond will not be required until after the bond estimate has been verified. In accordance with the City of Monroe Ordinance 0-2011-12, the performance bond can be submitted in the form of a certified check, cash, or an irrevocable letter of credit. Work must be completed, inspected, and approved by the Engineering Department before the performance bond can be released. No plan will be approved until the performance bond has been received. Alternatively, no erosion control plan is required for construction of single-family residential developments disturbing a total of one acre of land or less (Single Lot Residential ESC Installation and Maintenance Agreement) and commercial developments disturbing less than 12,000 square feet of land (NON-Residential ESC Installation and Maintenance Agreement); however, an ESC Installation and Maintenance Agreement is required.
