9-1E-30: DEFINITIONS: linklink

If the definition of any term contained in this chapter conflicts with the definition of the same term in order no. R4-2012-0175, then the definition contained in order no. R4-2012-0175 shall govern.

AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE FACILITY: A facility that is categorized in any one of the following standard industrial classification (SIC) and North American industry classification system (NAICS) codes. For inspection purposes, permittees need not inspect facilities with SIC codes 5013, 5014, 5511, 5541, 7532-7534, and 7536-7539 provided that these facilities have no outside activities or materials that may be exposed to stormwater (order no. R4-2012-0175).

BASIN PLAN: The water quality control plan, Los Angeles region, "Basin Plan For The Coastal Watersheds Of Los Angeles And Ventura Counties", adopted by the regional water board on June 13, 1994, and subsequent amendments (order no. R4-2012-0175).

BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICE (BMP): Practices or physical devices or systems designed to prevent or reduce pollutant loading from stormwater or nonstormwater discharges to receiving waters, or designed to reduce the volume of stormwater or nonstormwater discharged to the receiving water (order no. R4-2012-0175).

BIOFILTRATION: An LID BMP that reduces stormwater pollutant discharges by intercepting rainfall on vegetative canopy, and through incidental infiltration and/or evapotranspiration, and filtration. Incidental infiltration is an important factor in achieving the required pollutant load reduction. Therefore, the term "biofiltration" as used in this part is defined to include only systems designed to facilitate incidental infiltration or achieve the equivalent pollutant reduction as biofiltration BMPs with an underdrain (subject to approval by the regional board's executive officer). Biofiltration BMPs include bioretention systems with an underdrain and bioswales (order no. R4-2012-0175).

BIORETENTION: An LID BMP that reduces stormwater runoff by intercepting rainfall on vegetative canopy, and through evapotranspiration and infiltration. The bioretention system typically includes a minimum two foot (2') top layer of a specified soil and compost mixture underlain by a gravel filled temporary storage pit dug into the in situ soil. As defined in this part, a bioretention BMP may be designed with an overflow drain, but may not include an underdrain. When a bioretention BMP is designed or constructed with an underdrain it is regulated by order no. R4-2012-0175 as biofiltration (order no. R4-2012-0175).

BIOSWALE: An LID BMP consisting of a shallow channel lined with grass or other dense, low growing vegetation. Bioswales are designed to collect stormwater runoff and to achieve a uniform sheet flow through the dense vegetation for a period of several minutes (order no. R4-2012-0175).

CLEAN WATER ACT (CWA): The federal water pollution control act enacted in 1972, by public law 92-500, and amended by the water quality act of 1987. The clean water act prohibits the discharge of pollutants to waters of the United States unless the discharge is in accordance with an NPDES permit.

Scope: This section contains requirements for stormwater pollution control measures in development and redevelopment projects and authorizes the city to further define and adopt stormwater pollution control measures, and to develop LID principles and requirements, including, but not limited to, the objectives and specifications for integration of LID strategies, grant waivers from the LID requirements, and collect funds for projects that are granted waivers. Except as otherwise provided herein, the city shall administer, implement and enforce the provisions of this section.

C. Applicability: Development projects subject to permittee conditioning and approval for the design and implementation of postconstruction controls to mitigate stormwater pollution, prior to completion of the project(s), are:

1. All development projects equal to one acre or greater of disturbed area that adds more than ten thousand (10,000) square feet of impervious surface area.

2. Industrial parks ten thousand (10,000) square feet or more of surface area.

3. Commercial malls ten thousand (10,000) square feet or more of surface area.

4. Retail gasoline outlets with five thousand (5,000) square feet or more of surface area.

5. Restaurants (standard industrial classification (SIC) of 5812) with five thousand (5,000) square feet or more of surface area.

6. Parking lots with five thousand (5,000) square feet or more of impervious surface area, or with twenty five (25) or more parking spaces.

7. Streets and roads construction of ten thousand (10,000) square feet or more of impervious surface area. Street and road construction applies to stand alone streets, roads, highways, and freeway projects, and also applies to streets within larger projects.

8. Automotive service facilities (standard industrial classification (SIC) of 5013, 5014, 5511, 5541, 7532-7534 and 7536-7539) five thousand (5,000) square feet or more of surface area.

9. Projects located in or directly adjacent to, or discharging directly to an environmentally sensitive area (ESA), where the development will:

a. Discharge stormwater runoff that is likely to impact a sensitive biological species or habitat; and

b. Create two thousand five hundred (2,500) square feet or more of impervious surface area.

10. Single-family hillside homes.

11. Redevelopment projects.

a. Land disturbing activity that results in the creation or addition or replacement of five thousand (5,000) square feet or more of impervious surface area on an already developed site on planning priority project categories.

b. Where redevelopment results in an alteration to more than fifty percent (50%) of impervious surfaces of a previously existing development, and the existing development was not subject to postconstruction stormwater quality control requirements, the entire project must be mitigated.

c. Where redevelopment results in an alteration of less than fifty percent (50%) of impervious surfaces of a previously existing development, and the existing development was not subject to postconstruction stormwater quality control requirements, only the alteration must be mitigated, and not the entire development.

d. Redevelopment does not include routine maintenance activities that are conducted to maintain original line and grade, hydraulic capacity, original purpose of facility or emergency redevelopment activity required to protect public health and safety. Impervious surface replacement, such as the reconstruction of parking lots and roadways which does not disturb additional area and maintains the original grade and alignment, is considered a routine maintenance activity. Redevelopment does not include the repaving of existing roads to maintain original line and grade.

e. Existing single-family dwelling and accessory structures are exempt from the redevelopment requirements unless such projects create, add, or replace ten thousand (10,000) square feet of impervious surface area.

D. Specific Requirements: The site for every planning priority project shall be designed to control pollutants, pollutant loads, and runoff volume to the maximum extent feasible by minimizing impervious surface area and controlling runoff from impervious surfaces through infiltration, evapotranspiration, bioretention and/or rainfall harvest and use.

1. A new single-family hillside home development shall include mitigation measures to:

a. Conserve natural areas;

b. Protect slopes and channels;

c. Provide storm drain system stenciling and signage;

d. Divert roof runoff to vegetated areas before discharge unless the diversion would result in slope instability; and

e. Direct surface flow to vegetated areas before discharge, unless the diversion would result in slope instability.

2. Street and road construction of ten thousand (10,000) square feet or more of impervious surface shall follow USEPA guidance regarding managing wet weather with green infrastructure: green streets (December 2008 EPA-833-F-08-009) to the maximum extent practicable.

3. The remainder of planning priority projects shall prepare an LID plan to comply with the following:

a. Retain stormwater runoff on site for the stormwater quality design volume (SWQDv) defined as the runoff from:

(1) The eighty fifth percentile 24-hour runoff event as determined from the Los Angeles County eighty fifth percentile precipitation isohyetal map; or

(2) The volume of runoff produced from a 0.75 inch, 24-hour rain event, whichever is greater.

b. Minimize hydromodification impacts to natural drainage systems as defined in order no. R4-2012-0175.

c. To demonstrate technical infeasibility, the project applicant must demonstrate that the project cannot reliably retain one hundred percent (100%) of the SWQDv on site, even with the maximum application of green roofs and rainwater harvest and use, and that compliance with the applicable postconstruction requirements would be technically infeasible by submitting a site specific hydrologic and/or design analysis conducted and endorsed by a registered professional engineer, geologist, architect, and/or landscape architect. Technical infeasibility may result from conditions including the following:

(1) The infiltration rate of saturated in situ soils is less than 0.3 inch per hour and it is not technically feasible to amend the in situ soils to attain an infiltration rate necessary to achieve reliable performance of infiltration or bioretention BMPs in retaining the SWQDv on site.

(2) Locations where seasonal high groundwater is within five (5) to ten feet (10') of surface grade;

(3) Locations within one hundred feet (100') of a groundwater well used for drinking water;

(4) Brownfield development sites or other locations where pollutant mobilization is a documented concern;

(5) Locations with potential geotechnical hazards;

(6) Smart growth and infill or redevelopment locations where the density and/or nature of the project would create significant difficulty for compliance with the on site volume retention requirement.

d. If partial or complete on site retention is technically infeasible, the project site may biofiltrate 1.5 times the portion of the remaining SWQDv that is not reliably retained on site. Biofiltration BMPs must adhere to the design specifications provided in order no. R4-2012-0175.

(1) Additional alternative compliance options such as off site infiltration and groundwater replenishment projects may be available to the project site. The project site should contact the city of Temple City to determine eligibility.

e. The remaining SWQDv that cannot be retained or biofiltered on site must be treated on site to reduce pollutant loading. BMPs must be selected and designed to meet pollutant specific benchmarks as required per order no. R4-2012-0175. Flow through BMPs may be used to treat the remaining SWQDv and must be sized based on a rainfall intensity of:

(1) 0.2 inch per hour, or

(2) The 1-year, 1-hour rainfall intensity as determined from the most recent Los Angeles County isohyetal map, whichever is greater.

E. Additional Requirements: The site for projects not classified with general applicability listed in subsection C of this section, but resulting in the creation or addition or replacement of five hundred (500) square feet or more of impervious surface area shall be designed to control pollutants, pollutant loads, and runoff volume per the Temple City "Low Impact Development Manual".

Sec. 7-43: TEST STANDARDS. linklink

All measurements, tests, and analyses of the characteristics of waters and wastes to which reference is made in this chapter shall be determined in accordance with the latest edition of IEPA "Division Of Laboratories Manual Of Laboratory Methods", and shall be determined at the inspection manhole provided, or upon suitable samples taken at said inspection manhole. In the event that no special manhole has been provided, the inspection manhole shall be considered to be the nearest downstream manhole in the public sewer to the point at which the building sewer is connected. Sampling shall be carried out by scientifically accepted methods to reflect the effect of constituents upon the sewage works and to determine the existence of hazards to life, health and property. The particular analyses involved will determine whether a twenty four (24) hour composite of all outfalls of a premises is appropriate or whether a grab sample or samples should be taken. Normally, but not always, BOD and suspended solids analyses are obtained from twenty four (24) hour composite of all outfalls, whereas pHs are determined from periodic grab samples.

9-1M-25: DESIGN GUIDELINES: linklink

The following design guidelines shall apply to remodels, alterations and new construction. These guidelines are intended to be advisory rather than mandatory, and are to be applied by the community development department to the extent possible and reasonable. It is the intent that all new construction and reconstruction shall comply with as many such guidelines as may be amiably negotiated by the city staff with a property owner, builder or developer. If a person complies with the goals and intent of such guidelines, even though a minor portion of them cannot or will not be accommodated by the property owner, builder or developer, then the guidelines shall be deemed satisfied and the requisite permits shall be issued. If, on the other hand, a property owner, builder or developer cannot or will not comply with a substantial portion of the goals established by said guidelines, then permits may be denied by the community development department. Any such denial may be appealed to the planning commission via the procedures set forth in the site plan review process. Any action of the planning commission may also be appealed to the city council via the procedure set forth in the site plan review process.

In evaluating an appeal, in accordance with the procedures set forth in section 9-1E-4 of this chapter, the planning commission or the city council shall make a determination based upon the following considerations: a) does the proposed project substantially meet the overall intent, purpose and goals of the design guidelines, b) would the proposed project adversely impact property values within the neighborhood, c) could the proposed project adversely impact the peace, quiet and enjoyment of the area and d) would the proposed project be so incompatible with the surrounding area that noncompliance would result in anticipated adverse impacts, including possible adverse aesthetic impacts.

A. Guideline Checklist:

Overall intent and purpose: Multi-family developments are higher density residential buildings such as apartments, condominiums and townhomes. These developments are typically comprised of attached and detached units with common facilities such as guest parking, open space and recreation areas. The provisions of this section should apply to any addition, remodeling, relocation or construction of a multi-family development requiring a building permit within the city.

Building placement and orientation should be carefully designed to enhance its visual impact on the streetscape, minimize the visibility of garage doors, retain natural site features and complement the existing character of the neighborhood. Site grading should address existing drainage patterns and landforms while providing subtle transitions of architectural elements to grade. Grading and drainage should be coordinated in the initial design phase of the project to ensure the most natural and least evasive approach. Landscaping should be used to define building entrances, parking lots and the edge of various land uses and should be used to buffer and screen neighboring properties from storage areas. Landscaping should create a functional and attractive parking environment.

Parking areas should be well landscaped and screened while avoiding large expanses of paved areas and long rows of parking spaces. Pedestrian and vehicular circulation should be well defined and easily identifiable. Building designers should incorporate three hundred sixty degree (360°) architecture in all buildings and remodels. Three hundred sixty degree (360°) architecture is the full articulation of all building facades and includes variation in massing, roof forms and wall planes, as well as surface articulation. Roofs should reflect a residential appearance through pitch and use of materials. The main building entrance should be clearly identifiable and distinguishable from the rest of the building. All entrances should be emphasized using lighting, landscaping and architecture.

High quality materials should be used to create a look of permanence within the project and materials and colors should be varied to create visual interest in building facades and reduce the monotonous appearance. In addition, the use of durable materials requiring low maintenance is strongly encouraged.

Site planning:

* Buildings should be oriented toward the street.
* Dwellings should incorporate porches, trellises, landscaping and other features in the front yard to help extend the living area toward the street and to help soften the transition between the street and the dwelling.
* Buildings, parking areas and open space shall be arranged to minimize the use of sound walls.
* Courtyards, plazas, pedestrian malls or other methods should be used to break up the building mass; long "barrack like" or continuous rows of structures should be avoided.
* Development should incorporate existing natural features into the overall site design, including significant trees and vegetation and drainage areas.
* Stormwater retention ponds should be designed as a landscape feature.
* Project design should provide for controlled drainage of stormwater away from buildings.
* The number of site access points should be minimized; unnecessary driveway entrances should be avoided.
* The use of colored, textured and permeable paving treatment at entry drives is encouraged to accentuate these areas.
* Drive aisles should link to or provide future access opportunities for adjacent sites.
* Parking areas should be treated as well defined spaces with landscaping, lighting, building massing and pedestrian/vehicular circulation areas.
* The site area adjacent to the street should not be dominated with parking. Parking should be concentrated in areas behind buildings and away from the street when possible.
* Long rows of parking spaces should be avoided.
* Parking areas should be landscaped with shade trees.
* Screening should be provided at the periphery of all parking lots.
* The use of interlocking pavers is encouraged in place of stamped concrete in parking areas.
* Residents of housing projects should have safe and efficient access to usable open space, whether public or private, for recreation and social activities.
* Pedestrian linkages to nearby neighborhoods and other commercial projects should be provided.
* Easily identifiable pedestrian connections should be provided from the street/sidewalk to key areas within or adjacent to the site. Meandering paths provide a pleasant experience and are generally preferred over long, straight alignments.
* Pedestrian walkways should be safe, visually attractive and well defined by landscaping and lighting.
* Use of specialty paving for walkways, such as loose aggregate, paving stones or wooden decks, is encouraged. Paths made from permeable materials, such as decomposed granite, can create a more park like setting and allow for stormwater percolation.
* Patterns and colors should be installed in paving treatments using tile, brick or textured concrete in order to provide clear identification of pedestrian access points into buildings, parking features (i.e., handicapped spaces, pedestrian loading, bus stops/pull outs, etc.), entry drives and at pedestrian crossings within the site.
* Walkways shall not abut driveways in a parallel fashion, such as to effectively widen the driveway. Walkways should be separated from driveways by appropriate landscaping.
* The width of walkways should be in scale with the development. Generally, walkways having a width of approximately four feet (4') are encouraged.

Landscaping:

* Landscaping should be used to:

*     Define areas such as building entrances, key activity hubs, focal points and the street edge.
*     Provide screening for unattractive and unsightly service areas.
*     Serve as buffers between neighboring uses.
*     Provide landscaping between the driveway and building.

* A variety of height, textures and colors should be used in the planting pallet.
* A combination of trees, shrubs and ground cover should be incorporated into landscaping plans. Suggested sizes are as follows:

*     Trees: Twenty four inch (24") box, thirty six inch (36") box and forty eight inch (48") box.
*     Shrubs: Five (5) gallon and fifteen (15) gallon.

* Trees should be used to create more intimate spaces and frame views.
* Trees and shrubs should be located and spaced to allow for mature and long term growth.
* Larger, older trees should be planted to assist new development in looking "established" as quickly as possible.
* Accent planting, such as flowering trees, should be used around entries and key activity hubs.
* Planting should be used to screen less desirable areas from public view, such as trash enclosures, parking areas, storage areas, loading areas, public utilities and mechanical equipment.
* Evergreen trees should be used to soften the appearance of blank walls and provide visual screening but should not be a replacement for enhanced architecture.
* Where more than ten (10) automobile parking spaces exist on a lot or parcel of land, areas not used for vehicle parking or maneuvering, or for the movement of pedestrians to and from vehicles, should be used for landscaping. Trees should be distributed throughout the parking area so as to maximize the aesthetic effect and compatibility with adjoining uses.
* When parking areas of more than twenty (20) cars are provided, parking lot trees with canopies of thirty (30) to forty feet (40') should be planted to shade parked cars and create a more attractive environment.
* Walkways should be provided through landscaped areas along paths of likely travel to protect landscaping from foot traffic.
* The use of creative inert materials, such as fieldstone, stone and wood, are encouraged for paving and wall treatments.

Building design:

* Multi-family development adjacent to single-family neighborhoods should provide a buffer of single-story and/or detached units along the adjoining property line.
* Building designs should include a combination of the following techniques:

*     Variation in the wall plane (projection and recess).
*     Variation in wall height.
*     Roofs located at different levels.

* Combinations of one-, one and one-half- and two-story units are encouraged to create variation in mass and building height.
* Architectural details should be used to enhance the buildings and adjacent pedestrian spaces by adding color, shadows and interesting forms.
* It is expected that the highest level of articulation will occur on the front facade and facades visible from public streets; however, similar and complementary massing, materials and details should be incorporated into every other building elevation.
* Surface detailing should not substitute for distinctive massing.
* Architectural elements that add visual interest, scale and character are encouraged. Examples of such elements include, bay windows, recessed or projecting balconies, trellises, recessed windows, verandas, porches, awnings, overhangs, insets and varieties of materials and textures.
* Long, unbroken facades and box like forms should be avoided.
* There should be a change in wall plane on all facades visible from a public street. Elements such as balconies, porches, arcades, dormers and cross gables should be used to add visual interest.
* Exterior wall planes should be varied in depth and/or direction; bland walls should be avoided. Windows, trellises, wall articulations, arcades or changes in materials or other features should be utilized.
* Where appropriate to the architectural style, materials and textures should vary between the base and the body of a building, in order to break up large wall planes and add visual appeal to the base of the building. Heavier materials should be used to form the building base and as accents on upper stories and walls.
* On lower walls, architectural details that relate to human scale, such as arches, trellises or awnings, should be utilized.
* The height of the building should be varied so that it appears to be divided into distinct massing elements.
* The upper story of a two-story building should be stepped back to reduce the scale of facades facing the street, courtyards or open space areas.
* Structures with greater height should include additional setbacks and steps within the massing so as to transition heights from adjacent properties and to avoid dominating the character of the neighborhood.
* Tall or large structures should emphasize horizontal planes through the use of trim, awnings, eaves, other ornamentation or a combination of complementary colors.
* Textures, colors and materials should be unifying elements in the buildings.
* The use of materials and color should convey a sense of quality architecture and permanence. Contrasting but compatible colors should be used for windows, doors, trim and key architectural elements.
* Material changes not occurring at a change in plane appear "tacked on" and should be avoided.
* To the extent possible, each of the units should be individually recognizable. The following methods could be used to break up building massing:

*     Vary front setbacks within the same structure.
*     Stagger and jog unit planes.
*     Design a maximum of two (2) adjacent units with identical wall and rooflines.
*     Vary building orientations to avoid the monotony of long garage door corridors.

* The entrances to individual units should be visible from nearby parking areas or the street where possible.
* Each unit's entry should be easily identifiable and distinguishable.
* Internal access to individual rooms shall be taken from public or common areas. There should be no more than three (3) entry/exit doors serving any dwelling unit, unless required by the building code.
* The different parts of a building's facade should be articulated by the use of color, arrangement of facade elements or a change in materials.
* The selection and placement of building materials should provide visual interest at the pedestrian level.
* Stairways should be designed as an integral part of the overall architecture of the building and should complement the building's mass and form.
* Stairwells should be solid and constructed of smooth stucco, plaster or wood, with accent trim of complementary colors. Thin looking, open metal and prefabricated stairs are strongly discouraged.
* Minimize the concrete area of driveways to the extent possible.
* Pervious surfaces, such as pervious concrete or grass crete, should be used in driveways and paved areas. Encourage all driveways to have decorative paving and/or brickwork, as well as abutting shrubs or vines to soften the visual impact.
* Garages should be sited with the least amount of visual impact from the street.
* Garages should be subordinate to the main living area when viewed from the street. Where possible, the garage should be recessed behind the dwelling unit and not located between the main living area and the street.
* Detached garages should be designed as an integral part of the architecture of the project and should be similar in materials, color and detail to the principal structures of a development. A pitched or hip roof design is desired, if possible.
* Garage doors should appear to be set into the walls rather than flush with the exterior wall.
* Carports are generally discouraged but if provided in addition to the required garage parking, the design should be compatible with the primary structures on the parcel, such as roof slope, materials and details.

Windows:

* Window type, material, shape and proportion should complement the architectural style of the building.
* Windows should be articulated with sills, trim, kickers, shutters or awnings authentic to the architectural style of the building.
* Faux shutters shall be proportionate to window openings.
* Where appropriate to the architectural style, windows should be generously inset a minimum of three inches (3") from the building walls to create shade and shadow detail.

Roof materials and forms:

* Multiform roof combinations are encouraged to create varying roof forms and break up the massing of the building.
* Full roof forms that cover the entire building, such as gabled, hip or shed roof combinations are strongly encouraged and are preferred to mansard roofs and segments of pitched roofs applied at the building edge. If parapet roofs are used, these should include detailing typical of residential character and design.
* Rooflines should be broken at intervals no greater than fifty feet (50') long by changes in height or step backs.
* Rooflines should be designed to screen roof mounted mechanical equipment. All screening should be constructed consistent with the materials of the building and should be designed as a continuous component installed the length of the elevation.
* When mission and Spanish style roof tiles are used, terra cotta, two (2) piece barrel tiles with a blend of colors are preferred to ("S") type tiles.

Walls and fences:

* Fences and walls should be minimized along public streets.
* Fences and walls should be designed to complement project architecture.
* For walls and fences, materials such as wood, wrought iron, brick and stone are encouraged.
* Concrete masonry unit (CMU) walls should be constructed with slump block, split face or other decorative block style.
* Fences and walls should be constructed as low as possible while still performing their screening, noise attenuation and security functions.
* Long expanses of fences and walls should be offset and architecturally designed to prevent monotony. Landscape pockets should be provided.
* Both sides of all perimeter walls or fences should be finished and designed to complement the surrounding development. Landscaping should be used in combination with such walls whenever possible.
* Walls on sloping terrain should be stepped to follow the terrain.

Utilitarian aspects:

* Utilitarian aspects of the project should be aesthetically screened from view.
* Mechanical equipment, including gas and electrical meters, cable boxes, junction boxes, and irrigation controllers, should be located within a utility room, along with the fire riser and roof access ladder. Where this cannot be achieved, these elements should be designed as an integral part of the building on a rear or side elevation and screened from public view.
* All vents, gutters, downspouts, flashing and electrical panels should be painted to match the surface to which attached, unless used as a major design element, in which case the color is to be consistent with the overall color scheme of the building.
* Gutters and downspouts should be decorative, designed to integrate with the building facade, and should not appear as a "tacked on" afterthought.
* Discharge from gutters and downspouts should not flow directly across pedestrian walkways.
* Accessory structures should be designed as an integral part of the architecture of the project. These structures should be similar in materials, color and detail to the principal structures of a development and designed with pitched or hip roofs if possible.
* Common mailbox enclosures should be designed to be similar or complementary in form, material and color to the surrounding residential buildings and should be located in alcoves away from the streetscape.
* Trash and recycling containers should be designed to be consistent with the development and should be screened with landscaping. Architecturally designed roof structures should be used to create a finished looking structure.
* Trash enclosures should be unobtrusive and conveniently located for disposal by tenants and for collection by service vehicles.
* Multi-family housing should generally have centrally located trash bins in appropriate enclosures. Individual trash cans should be discouraged, unless the individual dwelling units have direct street frontage. (Ord. 05-896)

Runoff reduction:

* Use permeable materials in lieu of or to replace hardscape to increase the amount of runoff seepage into the ground.
* Maximize permeable areas to allow more percolation of runoff into the ground through such means as:

*     Biofilters;
*     Green strips;
*     Swales.

* Maximize the amount of runoff directed to permeable areas and/or maximize stormwater storage for reuse or infiltration by such means as:

*     Orienting roof runoff toward permeable surfaces, dry wells, French drains, or other structural BMPs rather than directly to driveways or nonpermeable surfaces so that runoff will penetrate into the ground instead of flowing off site.
*     Grading the site to divert flow to permeable areas. Using cisterns, retention structures or green rooftops to store precipitation or runoff for reuse.
*     Removing or designing curbs, berms or the like so as to avoid isolation of permeable or landscaped areas.

* Any construction project adding downspouts, gutters and subsurface pipes directing stormwater to the curb face shall have a French drain system of perforated pipe and gravel unless site specific circumstances endanger public safety:

*     Use natural drainage, detention ponds or infiltration pits so that runoff may collect and seep into the ground and reduce or prevent off site flows;
*     Divert and catch runoff through the use of drainage swales, berms, green strip filters, gravel beds and French drains; and
*     Construct driveways and walkways from porous materials to allow increased percolation of runoff into the ground.

* Minimize the amount of runoff directed to impermeable areas and/or maximize stormwater storage for reuse:

*     Install rain gutters and orient them toward permeable surfaces rather than driveways or nonpermeable surfaces so that runoff will penetrate into the ground instead of flowing off site;
*
