Land Disturbance Permit
Every person will be required to obtain a land disturbance permit from the City Engineer in the following cases:
- Land disturbing activity disturbs one or more acres of land
- Land disturbing activity of less than one acre of land if such activity is part of a larger common plan of development that affects one or more acre of land
- Land disturbing activity of less than one acre of land, if at the discretion of the city engineer or other appropriate authority, such activity poses a threat to water, public health, or safety and the creation and use of borrow pits
The City of La Vergne has stormwater inspectors that periodically inspect Erosion Control and Sediment Prevention at construction sites to ensure that contractors have installed and maintain their erosion and sediment controls properly.
