Grading Permit Requirements:
No person may do any grading without first obtaining a grading permit. A separate permit must be obtained for each site and may cover both excavations and fills.
Additionally, the application must state the estimated quantities of work involved.
All grading exceeding 1,000 cubic yards must be performed in accordance with the approved grading plan prepared by a civil engineer, and will be designated as engineered grading. Grading involving less than 1,000 cubic yards will be designated regular grading, unless the permittee, with the City Engineer’s approval, chooses to have the grading performed as engineered grading.
An application for a grading permit must be accompanied by at least two sets of plans and specifications, and supporting data consisting of a soils engineering report and engineering geology report. The plans and specifications must be prepared and signed by an individual licensed by the State to prepare such plans or specifications when required by the Building Official.
Plans must be drawn to scale and must be of sufficient clarity to indicate the nature and extent of the work proposed; and show in detail that they will conform to the provisions of this code and all relevant laws, ordinances, rules and regulations. The first sheet of each set of plans must give the location of the work, the name and address of the owner, and the person who prepared the plans. Contact the City of Camarillo for sample plans, title blocks, and other plan requirements.
Grading Plan Review Fees: Grading plan check fees must be in the amounts set by City Council resolution.
Grading Permit Fees: Grading permit fees are set by City Council resolution.
Grading Bonds: No grading bond is required if less than 1000 cubic yards will be graded. For amounts over 1000 cubic yards, a grading bond in the amount of $3.00 for each cubic yard must be posted.
The City Engineer may require a geotechnical investigation in accordance with Sections 1802.4 when, during the course of an investigation, all of the following conditions are discovered, the report must address the potential for liquefaction:
1. Shallow ground water, 50 feet (15 240 mm) or less.
2. Unconsolidated sandy alluvium.
3. Seismic design categories D and E.
Soils Geology Report Review: Should a soils and geology report be required for issuing a grading permit, in addition to any other fees, the permittee must reimburse the City for the cost of all consultant reviews and analysis of such reports and an administrative cost as set by City Council resolution.
Geotechnical Studies: Geotechnical studies must conform to the requirements of Chapter 16.38 of the Camarillo Municipal Code.
