The Single Family Residential Stormwater Management and Tree Preservation Program was implemented by Town Council to address unmanaged stormwater and improve efficiency for tree removal. This new program sets standards by which the Town, citizens and homebuilders may use as a means to administer, regulate and manage construction of single family lots, while preserving existing trees and buffers.
Beginning March 1st, contractors and residents who plan to proceed with clearing and grading activities that disturb or alter land on a single family parcel must have a stormwater management and tree preservation permit prior to the release of most building permits. Examples of projects that will require this new permit are construction of a new home, improvements or additions to an existing home, construction of a pool or any detached structure. This new permit is required before any land clearing or disturbance may occur on any property. Authorization of this permit confirms that the applicant is in compliance with the minimum standards and is authorized to commence proposed site improvements. Please note that any applicable Building Permit application received on or after March 1, 2019 will not be approved and issued until this Single Family Stormwater Management and Tree Preservation Permit is issued and all inspections are successfully completed.
You can apply for the Single Family Residential Stormwater Management and Tree Preservation Permit through the Building Inspections Division.
