[ARCHIVED] Calling All Local Contractors! Developers! Architects! Plan Preparers! and Future Owner-Builders!

Storm Training

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.

Closing: Space is limited so we’re encouraging all attendees to reserve their seat in advance. To RSVP, or to request more information about the presentation, please send an email to vmcintyr@cityofpa.us or call (360) 417-4701.
