Deficiencies belonging to the "Site" relate to items found on the grounds of a property that include fences and gates, grounds, vegetation, retaining walls, playgrounds, and other components found in the centrally located portions of a property's site. No matter how many buildings or locations are present as part of any one property, the "site" is considered to be a single contiguous area and all of the items on the property's site are rated as a single item, regardless if they are located in separate areas or are of different construction or design.
The following chart is a list of the issues that can be cited on the grounds and site. Health and safety deficiencies may be applied in addition to any of the items below. For example, damage to the sidewalk or steps may also result in a tripping hazard.
