On February 17, 2009, the Flagstaff City Council approved Ordinance No. 2009-07 which requires Low Impact Development (LID) integrated management practices (IMP's) be used to retain/infiltrate the first one inch of runoff from all impervious areas on sites that are also required to provide stormwater detention (typically sites that are greater than a fourth of an acre).
Guidance Manual The LID GuidancePage is designed to assist planners, developers, architects, landscape professionals, and others with engineering solutions and site planning practices that attempt to mimic natural hydrologic functions for development sites. The LID handbook/manual provides a comprehensive list of LID planning and stormwater management techniques for developers, builders, contractors, planners, landscape architects, engineers, and government employees to reference as guidance prior to developing a project site.
