North Carolina Low Impact Development Summit
Development, design, planning and permitting professionals from across the state gathered in March 2014 to unveil the latest technology and tools for Low Impact Development (LID). Presenters at the Low Impact Development Summit included national speakers, government leaders, research experts and developers.
Realizing the great potential of LID, state water quality officials made a formal commitment in 2012 to promote its use as a voluntary option for developers by providing easy to use, standardized tools and revised technical guidelines that allow for LID stormwater permitting credit. The state is also working with local governments and development professionals to identify obstacles to the use of LID and find timely and cost effective solutions to those impediments.
A committed partnership between the state, N.C. Coastal Federation, N.C. State University, development professionals, local governments and private engineering firms is engaged in developing new standards and tools to simplify the use of LID.
APNEP was a platinum-level sponsor of this event and supported the summit through participation with North Carolina's LID State Technical Review Team.
