Planning Building and Development is proposing changes to the City of Roanoke’s Stormwater Management and Erosion and Sediment Control Ordinances.

Main changes are as follows:

Stormwater Management –

• Allow temporary certificates of occupancy to be issued when stormwater management facilities are substantially complete and a performance bond is retained. Currently all measure must be fully complete prior to issuing any certificate of occupancy.

Erosion and Sediment Control –

• Raise the threshold for land disturbing permits to 2,500 sf.
• Ease plan requirements for projects disturbing less than 10,000 sf.
• Reduce performance guarantee requirements.
• Allow agreements-in-lieu of a plan for temporary activities.
