(a) Contributions. Each monetary contribution required under Section 19-24 must comply with a fee schedule set by Executive regulation. The County must credit each contribution to a capital improvement program project for planning and implementation of stormwater management and stream or wetland restoration.
(b) Dedications. The County may agree with an applicant to accept an easement or dedicate land to build a stormwater management facility. If the Department consents in writing for a facility to be located on parkland, the Board must also agree before the applicant may dedicate land to build a stormwater management facilty.
(c) Stream and wetlands restoration measures. For redevelopment only, the Department may allow an applicant to construct stream or wetland restoration measures instead of monetary contributions or dedications if:
(1) the Director of Permitting Services and the Director of Environmental Protection both find that it is in the County’s best interest for the applicant to provide stream or wetland restoration measures; and
(2) the estimated cost of the stream or wetland restoration measures do not exceed the estimated cost of on-site stormwater management controls that the applicant would otherwise be required to provide for new development.
