(A) This chapter shall be applicable to all subdivision or site plan applications, unless eligible for an exemption or granted a waiver by the town under the specifications of §§ 156.025 et seq. of this chapter.
(B) This chapter also applies to land development activities that are smaller than the minimum applicability criteria, if such activities are part of a larger common plan of development that meets the following applicability criteria, even though multiple separate and distinct land development activities may take place at different times on different schedules.
(C) In addition, all plans must also be reviewed by local environmental protection officials to ensure that established water quality standards will be maintained during and after development of the site, and that post-construction runoff levels are consistent with any local and regional watershed plans.
(D) To prevent the adverse impacts of storm water runoff, the town has developed a set of performance standards that must be met at new development sites.
(1) These standards apply to any construction activity disturbing 5,000 or more square feet of land.
(2) The following activities are exempt from these storm water performance criteria:
(a) Additions or modifications to existing single-family structures;
(b) Developments that do not disturb more than 5,000 square feet of land, provided they are not part of a larger common development plan; and
(c) Repairs to any storm water treatment practice that the town deems necessary.
(E) When a site development plan is submitted that qualifies as a redevelopment project, as defined in § 156.006 of this chapter, decisions on permitting an on-site storm water requirements shall be governed by storm water sizing criteria found in the current storm water design manual.
(1) This criteria is dependent on the amount of impervious area created by the redevelopment and its impact on water quality.
(2) Final authorization of all redevelopment projects will be determined after a review by the town.
