Construction activities disturbing 1 acre or greater, or less than 1 acre when part of a larger common plan, require a Land Disturbance Permit (LDP) and Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) approved by the city. You will need to:

  1. Write a SWPPP and design an erosion sediment control plan
  2. Pay the permit fee and escrow
  3. Attend a pre permit meeting/SWPPP training
  4. Install Best Management Practices (BMPs)
  5. Once BMPs are approved by city inspector, permit is issued and construction may begin
