Retaining wall replacement
Review Type
Revised permit


The Old Georgetown Board regrets that inappropriate mortar, not approved by this body, has rendered these existing historic bricks unusable. No objection to issuance of revised permit for replacement of existing brick walls that run along the west and south property lines of the lot, per supplemental drawings received ___ May 2020, PROVIDED any salvageable brick be reused, and that the walls are rebuilt in sections to minimize erosion, ensure the height of the wall is not altered, and to allow salvage and reuse of as many bricks as possible. 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.
