How do I know if my property is within the RPA?
The Department of Public Works maintains a map showing the approximate location of RPAs in the City. This can be found online here: Search for the address and then choose "Resource Protection Area" in the map layers column.

It is important to note that before an land disturbance can occur on a property the RPA must be definitively located by a licensed surveyor or professional engineer.
