Responsible land development includes the following goals:
- controlling soil erosion from construction sites
- reducing flood risks for roads and buildings
- reducing the long-term impacts of storm water runoff to the land, streams, and lakes from hard surfaces such as rooftops and parking lots.
The Mecklenburg County Land Development Standards Manual provides engineers and designers the information to ensure these goals are met within the six Mecklenburg County Towns and their ETJ areas.
