Low Impact Development (LID) Alternative Compliance
The “Lower Stanislaus Low Impact Development Alternative Compliance Plan” addresses the physical and fiscal constraints of on-site LID, which are disproportionately experienced by projects in infill, brownfield, and redevelopment contexts. LID can be land consumptive and/or too expensive for infill projects. Infill and redevelopment areas are of particular importance given recent state legislation that encourages more compact and coordinated growth (i.e., SB 375, AB 32, formation of Strategic Growth Council, etc.). This Plan serves as a demonstration project for communities throughout the San Joaquin Valley and beyond, providing options for local governments to comply with both stormwater management goals and sustainable growth goals.
