A great program that helps make the best use of something we're all familiar with - RAIN WATER.
Low Impact Development (LID) is smart, stormwater management that promotes the use of small-scale, natural drainage features to slow, clean, infiltrate and capture rainfall. It's an economical and efficient way to replenish local aquifers, reduce pollution, increase the reuse of water and improve the quality of our beaches and waterways.
Effective, November 12, 2013, the LID Ordinance will apply to any new development or redevelopment that results in the replacement of more than fifty percent (50%) of an existing building structure, or impervious surface area (exceptions apply - see LID Brochure).
