BACKGROUND:

The Board has considered the stormwater management program in three work sessions this year:

 

 

 

STRATEGIC PLAN:

Goal 2.2: Protect and/or preserve the Countyís natural resources

Goal 2.3: Provide for environmentally sensitive government operations at the local and regional level.

Goal 3.3: Develop and implement policies that address the Countyís growth and urbanization while continuing to enhance the factors that contribute to the quality of life in the County.

 

 

DISCUSSION:

The Board can consider the attached resolution of intent in anticipation of acting on a stormwater financing strategy as part of a more comprehensive discussion of urban infrastructure funding.  In the meantime, amending the Comprehensive Plan will allow an integrated approach to stormwater management, allow the policies of the plan to be considered in conjunction with rezonings and special use permits in the Development Areas, and facilitate implementation of the planís strategies. 

 

 

RECOMMENDATION:

         Adopt the Resolution of Intent to Amend the Comprehensive Plan to incorporate the Stormwater Master Plan for the Development Areas.
