Title

Joint resolution authorizing the execution of an intergovernmental agreement between the Lake County Planning, Building and Development Department and the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission relating to the fee-in-lieu program as an alternative to on-site stormwater storage regulations.

 

Staff Summary

                     The Planning, Building & Development Department (PB&D) and the Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) have developed an intergovernmental agreement that allows unincorporated development a fee-in-lieu option as an alternative to on-site stormwater management, when eligible.

                     The fee-in-lieu program would be administered by the SMC in tandem with the department’s development review/permit process. 

                     Associated costs and fees would be assumed by the SMC.

                     Following committee action, the intergovernmental agreement will proceed to the Finance & Administrative Committee for review and action prior to County Board approval.
