Low Impact Development (LID) - A virtual meeting
Thursday evening, September 24, 7:00 PM, is our first meeting after the 2020 summer break! This month's speaker will be Joanie Regan, a local resident with experience in city government and Low Impact Development (LID).
Low Impact Development (LID) is a type of smart growth that simultaneously conserves green space and manages stormwater effectively. Unlike traditional land use designs, LID promotes natural stormwater management techniques that minimize runoff and help prevent pollutants from getting into the runoff. In some cases, these practices decrease the size of traditional retention and detention basins and can be less costly than conventional stormwater control mechanisms.
