Response to January 27, 2021 Member Motion - Permeable Pavement Solutions to Address Climate Change, Secondary Suites and Stormwater Management for Driveways, Sidewalks and Parking Lots
The conclusion: staff continue to evaluate new stormwater management tools and methods on an ongoing basis to ensure best management practices are always implemented. Permeable pavers and pavement systems are one of these tools, but they should be considered holistically as part of the overall stormwater management system, which is best implemented through the City policies, programs, standards and practices that are in place or currently underway.
