We will be reconvening the URM Policy Committee on December 6, 2016 in room 4080 at the Seattle Municipal Tower. The committee will discuss the results of the URM inventory validation and hear updates since the last meeting in April 2014. This is the first in a series of 3 meetings to finalize the committee’s January 2013 draft recommendations on a retrofit policy for URMs.
Unreinforced Masonry Retrofit Policy Development Update
DPD continues to evaluate the policy and program development for a mandatory unreinforced masonry (URM) seismic retrofit program. The URM Policy Committee has asked DPD to validate the inventory list of URMs that we identified before they make further policy recommendations.
