How was the current ordinance developed?
The City of Roanoke, Roanoke County, and the City of Salem have worked together to develop stormwater ordinances with similar requirements to provide as much consistency as possible for property owners, developers and designers working in the area. The draft city ordinance was developed using a template from DEQ. This assures that the ordinances meet the minimum state requirements but the drafts have also been tailored to consider local conditions and needs.
