Projects Greater than One Acre

Print

If you are interested in developing land within the City and will disturb more than one acre or disturb less than one acre within a project on a parcel that has a Larger Common Plan for development (LCP), permit information can be found here.

What is a Larger Common Plan for development?  

An LCP is defined (63 Federal Register No. 128, July 6, 1998, p. 36491) as "any announcement or piece of documentation (including a sign, public notice or hearing, sales pitch, advertisement, drawing, permit application, zoning request, computer design, etc.) or physical demarcation (including boundary signs, lot stakes, surveyor markings, etc.) indicating construction activities may occur on a specific plot."

 Examples:  

  • A shopping center or strip mall that has, in the past acquired a stormwater construction permit, but has vacant land within its boundaries that is going to be developed in the future.  If the land is less than one acre, it will fall under the large construction project requirements since it is situated on an LCP.
  • A residential subdivision where several lots have not been built, regardless of the age of the subdivison.  If the lots are purchased and a plan for building upon them is submitted, then those lots fall under an LCP, since the subdivision is a larger common plan of development.  In that case, an applicant would apply for an Individual Lot Stormwater (IL-NOI application) permit.
