How will stormwater from the project be addressed and how might it impact surrounding areas?
Over the past 15 years, the City has completed several significant infrastructure projects which provide additional stormwater control capacity upstream from downtown and have significantly reduced the potential flood impact zones. The City development regulations require incorporation of stormwater systems to clean and control run off. These regulations will require the post development run-off rates to be less than the existing pre-development rates thus reducing potential impacts and improving upon existing conditions. Additionally, the existing site is largely paved with multiple light industrial uses established decades ago before stormwater management standards were in place. The proposed project will be designed with integrated stormwater infrastructure to control and direct run off.
