MRP Special Development Projects


Pursuant to Provisions C.3.e.ii.(2) of the Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit (MRP) Permittees have submitted proposals for types of "Special Development Projects" which are proposed for LID treatment reduction credits. The proposal must address the following issues:
  • Identification of the types of projects proposed for consideration of LID treatment reduction credits and an estimate of the number and cumulative area of potential projects during the remaining term of this Permit for each type of project
  • Identification of institutional barriers and/or technical site-specific constraints to providing 100% LID treatment onsite that justify the allowance for non-LID treatment measures onsite
  • Specific criteria for each type of Special Project proposed, including size, location, minimum densities, minimum floor area ratios, or other appropriate limitations
  • Identification of specific water quality and environmental benefits provided by these types of projects that justify the allowance for non-LID treatment measures onsite
  • Proposed LID treatment reduction credit for each type of Special Project and justification for the proposed credits. The justification shall include identification and an estimate of the specific water quality benefit provided by each type of Special Project proposed for LID treatment reduction credit
  • Proposed total treatment reduction credit for Special Projects that may be characterized by more than one category and justification for the proposed total credit
