Post-Construction Stormwater Ordinance (PCO) – Expiration of Redevelopment Mitigation Options

The PCO was authorized by the Charlotte City Council effective July 1, 2008.  It included an option to pay fee in lieu of onsite mitigation in Transit Station Areas and designated Distressed Business Districts.    In October 2011, the City Council temporarily expanded the fee in lieu mitigation option for all redevelopment projects larger than one acre (see Section 18-161(c) of the Ordinance).  The City Council is currently considering an extension of the expanded fee in lieu option.  Unless the City Council votes to extend it, the fee in lieu mitigation option will expire on April 30, 2014 for those projects that are outside of the Transit Station Areas and Distressed Business Districts.  If the option does expire, only those redevelopment projects that have been submitted for initial review by April 30 and subsequently pass “gateway” review will be considered eligible for the expanded fee in lieu option.   Redevelopment projects in Transit Station Areas and Distressed Business Districts will continue to be eligible for the fee in lieu option.

The tentative schedule for Council consideration of this item is as follows:

April 2, 2014:   City Council Environment Committee Meeting 
                        9:00 a.m.
