1454.07    STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PLAN (SMP) REQUIREMENTS.
   (a)   Storm water management plans (SMPs) are intended to provide information on all soil erosion, sediment and runoff control activities and Best Management Practices (BMPs) to be used and incorporated on the site both during and after site development. This information includes, but is not limited to, site grading, stormwater management facilities and practices, erosion, sediment and runoff control information, maintenance plans, and other measures that focus on managing the effects of earth disturbing activities that occur as a result of site development.
   (b)   Each SMP shall provide site designs that meet the Earth Disturbing Activity Performance Standards presented in Section 1454.05 and in Appendix A, Earth Disturbing Activity Performance Standards and Appendix B, Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) Requirements, attached to Ordinance No. 30-08, passed November 11, 2008, which provide practical treatment for both water quality and quantity of stormwater from the site as appropriate.
   (c)   In general, SMPs need to address:
      (1)   Erosion and sediment control. Provides measures to ensure that earth disturbing activities at the site during and after development will be managed in a manner that will not result in increased erosion and sedimentation from the site nor result in negative impacts to water quality and that meet the earth disturbing activity performance standards specified in Section 1454.05, in Appendix A, Earth Disturbing Activity Performance Standards and in Appendix B, Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) Requirements, attached to Ordinance No. 30-08, passed November 11, 2008; and
      (2)   Runoff control. Providing measures to ensure that the rate of surface water runoff from the development site during and after construction will mimic the pre-development conditions and that meet the performance standards specified in Section 1454.05, in Appendix A, Earth Disturbing Activity Performance Standards and in Appendix B, Stormwater Management Plan (SMP) Requirements, attached to Ordinance No. 30-08, passed November 11, 2008.
   (d)   If a SMP is required under Section 1454.03(b), (e) and (g) or Section 1454.06(d)(4)C., such plan shall specifically include all the detail requirements found in Appendix B, Stormwater Management Plan Requirements, attached to Ordinance No. 30-08, passed November 11, 2008.
   (e)   Stormwater Management Plan Administration.
      (1)   Submission. The applicant is encouraged to have a pre-submission meeting with the City and its authorized agent(s). Submission of ten sets of the SMP and other supporting data required by this regulation to the City and its authorized agent(s) completes the applicant's responsibilities and initiates the review process.
      (2)   Review. Upon submission of the SMP, the City and its authorized agent(s) shall complete a review of the SMP provided that the applicant has submitted all information required. The SMP shall be reviewed by the City and/or its authorized agent(s) to:
         A.   Verify background information furnished by the applicant and  evaluate the proposed development in relation to existing site conditions; and
         B.    Assess the SMP in relation to the performance standards and requirements of this chapter.
      (3)   Action. Action by the City and/or the authorized agent(s) approving or disapproving the SMP is a final order for purposes of judicial review. Once the SMP has been approved by City staff and/or its authorized agent(s) and the City Council and/or the Planning Board shall within thirty days either:
         A    Approve the SMP as submitted by the applicant;
         B.    Conditionally approve the SMP and require the submission of additional and/or revised information by the applicant, in order to fully meet the intent and standards of this chapter. Revisions to conditionally approved SMPs shall be prepared and submitted by the applicant to the City for final review to ensure that the plan requirements have been fully met; or
         C.    Disapprove the SMP.
            1.    Upon disapproval of the SMP, the applicant shall be required to contact the City and/or its authorized agent(s) within thirty days of denial to discuss the status of the project; and
            2.    If the project does not proceed, the applicant shall pay all  related fees incurred by the City to date within thirty days of the disapproval and the project file shall be closed. If the project does proceed, the applicant shall schedule a review meeting with the City and/or its authorized agent(s) to discuss how the SMP should change to fit the requirements and standards of this chapter.
         D.    Once approval of the SMP has been obtained and the payment of all fees related to the SMP have been deposited with the City Finance Office, the soil erosion and sedimentation permit may be issued.
