LA City Low Impact Development Changed in July

LA City has changed Low Impact Development (LID) for Small Scale Residential Development as of July 5th.

Below is the link to the calculations required and few more requirements we need to follow. Not too bad, but its yet another change.

The other change is that we now need to provide a plot plan with the maintenance covenant that shows the BMP's location on site along with the sizing. Again not too bad, but this is more work for us.

Thankfully we are still not required to provide a hydrology report and/or show calculations for the 85th percentile 24-hour storm like some other cities are doing for Single Family Residential. I cannot wait to see what the new Baseline Hillside Ordinance looks like. Probably better for smaller houses, and not so good for 20,000+ sqft types of houses.
