Land Disturbance Permit
The City follows state and federal mandates in regulating construction sites to ensure all sediment remains on-site. The Stormwater Engineering Division is currently implementing a comprehensive land disturbance permit program, including the revision of erosion and sediment control best management practices (BMP) standards and requirements.
Generally, a land disturbance permit is required for all sites disturbing 1 acre or more or sites that disturb less than 1 acre when part of a larger common plan of development or sale that will disturb a cumulative total of one or more acres over the life of the project. However, all land disturbers are required to comply with the City Code Chapter 96-Stormwater regardless of the size of the land disturbance. The owner is ultimately responsible for the compliance of their site.
