Base Lands Slope Analysis An evaluation of the base lands topography in terms of slope gradient, which determines its ability to support base area facilities, village development, auxiliary facilities, and residential development. Typically,the slope gradients for base area development are broken into categories up to a maximum of 40% slope.

Typically,the slope gradients for base area development are broken into categories up to a maximum of 40% slope as follows:

  • 0 - 10% Capable of accommodating all types of base area development with limited grading. Typically identifying parking potential as well as lands that may be wet and environmentally sensitive to development.
  • 10 - 20% Lands that will require some grading to accommodate development. Upper limits to base area/village development.
  • 20 - 30% Upper limits to multi family development with grading.
  • 30 - 40% Upper limits to conventional single-family development.
  • 40%+ Generally too steep for development. However, dependent onreasonable access and geotechnical considerations, some development possible.
