Discussion of Amended Storm Water Regulations
Mayor and City Council
City Manager
June 18, 2014
City Council Workshop

Current City storm water regulations within the 17/92 corridor are based upon the 100 year flood and storing every drop of storm water on the property. Under Volusia County's storm water regulations a developer is given credit for storm water that runs off the site prior to development.

In order to better accommodate development and redevelopment for parcels fronting US Hwy 17-92 from Saxon Blvd. south to Dirksen Dr., staff is proposing to revise the City’s existing stormwater requirements to mirror those of the County. A majority of the US Hwy 17-92 corridor is made up of small parcels and under the city’s current stormwater management requirements, development and redevelopment is made difficult. Staff is therefore proposing that the following language be added to Chapter 4 (Land Development Standards), Article II (Land Development), Division 7 (Stormwater Management), Section 4-184 (Performance, review and design standards), Sub-Section (a)(2)a.

“For those parcels abutting U.S. Highway 17/92, between Dirksen Drive and Saxon Boulevard, the stormwater management design shall retain the difference in pre- and post-development runoff volume for the 100-year, 24-hour storm event. Note, that if the parcel discharges into the existing U.S. Highway 17/92 storm sewer system, an FDOT Drainage Connection Permit will also be required to address the Department's Critical Duration Analysis. Total recovery of the retained volume must occur within 14 days after the storm event.”

Staff would like to discuss the issue and is seeking direction on potential changes to the current storm water regulations.
