DATE: February 28, 2019
The Kane County Stormwater Management Planning Committee has released the revisions to the Kane County Stormwater Ordinance for a 30-day public review and comment. The revisions aim to incorporate Ordinance language from the Technical Manual, address conflicting language within the Ordinance, make the Ordinance more user friendly, add requirements for water quality/best management practices, standardize detention triggers, promote redevelopment and provide watershed benefit options that encourage farmland preservation.
Following the Public Hearing, we anticipate the Stormwater Management Planning Committee will make a recommendation to the County Board at their April 9, 2019, 4:00 PM meeting. If approved by the County Board at their May meeting, the Ordinance would become effective June 1, 2019, and will be the countywide minimum standard. Developments seeking exemption from the revisions should contact their permitting authority prior to the effective date to determine if they are eligible for an exemption.
Over three hundred copies of the Ordinance revisions have been distributed for public review to County Board Members, municipal and village offices, township offices, consulting engineering firms, and interested organizations for review and comment. We encourage you to review these Ordinance revisions and provide your comments.
The Ordinance can be viewed and downloaded on the Kane County Stormwater Ordinance website: https://www.kanecountystormwaterupdate.org/updated-ordinance.html
Written public comments can be submitted directly on the website or may be mailed to: Kane County Department of Environment & Water Resources, 719 Batavia Ave. Geneva, IL. 60134, Attn: Jodie Wollnik, Director.
