The Planning Commission will host a public hearing on October 11 to consider updates to stormwater codes.
Code revisions include adopting the most recent stormwater management manual, adding new language for basin planning and source control of pollutants, and clarifying existing stormwater regulations for consistency.
The meeting is set for 7:00 p.m. via Zoom, with the option to participate by telephone. The public may provide comment during the meeting or submit written comment in advance. Written statements are due by 4:00 p.m. October 11 to Lisa Plancich at firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments become part of the public record.
After discussion, the Planning Commission will make a recommendation to the City Council, which is expected to take up the issue at a special meeting on Wednesday, November 10. A public hearing and vote is tentatively scheduled on November 15.
