No objection to issuance of permit for reconstruction of stone retaining wall at driveway and front yard to match existing, per drawings received 21 February 2019, which indicate new soil nails, ties and spike plates would be installed on the earth side of the wall, a new flexible control joint would be made on the street side, and the existing stones, brick cap, and wood picket fence would be retained and reinstalled. This approval overrides previous permit approval for wall reconstruction from May 2018 (OG 18-182, HPA 18-338). Note: Any subsequent modifications to the approved design, including those made during DCRA technical review, must be resubmitted to the Commission for approval prior to the issuance of a permit.
