Chapter 12A LAND PRESERVATION
Section 12A-85 Legislative findings.
The city council makes the following legislative findings:
(1) Land development projects increase impervious surfaces
resulting in increased
stormwater runoff rates and volumes, flooding, stream channel erosion, sediment transport and
deposition, and increased quantities of water-borne pollutants.
(2) Stormwater runoff, soil erosion and non-point source pollution can be most
controlled and minimized through land use regulation and preventative measures aimed at
reducing stormwater runoff from development sites.
(3) The regulations set forth in this article reasonably
reduce the harm caused by land
development projects and are in the public interest.
