If you will be involved in
constructing or re-developing any average-sized building (± 2000 sq. ft.)
within the Port Angeles City limits in the next few years, then there are a few
important things you should know before submitting your permit application –
primarily, don’t forget about the stormwater!
As reflected in the 2017 ordinance
update, the City has embraced using low-impact development (LID) practices to
manage stormwater runoff and now requires that it be addressed at the time of
permit application. LID reduces adverse downstream impacts by allowing
stormwater runoff to infiltrate directly into the ground or to be filtered
onsite through vegetation. To help local builders incorporate LID into their
projects appropriately, the City has developed a series of small-project
templates to simplify the application process.
On January 24th at 1:00 pm, City
staff will be giving a free training in the City Hall Council Chambers on how
to efficiently use these small-project stormwater templates. The presentation
will work through the City’s templates using the most common scenario of
building a single family home on a standard City lot. The training is expected
to be 3 hours in length with some additional time at the end for Q&A.
is limited so we’re encouraging all attendees to reserve their seat in advance.
