Low Impact Parcel Credit
Yes, homeowners with a two-acre lot or more are eligible for a Low Impact Parcel Credit if their lot is less than 15% of the impervious area. Also, any homeowner who participates in one of the City's Adopt-A-Path/Park (PDF) programs is eligible for a Watershed Stewardship Credit (PDF). In order to receive the credit on your annual bill, you must submit your application by March 1 of the year. If this due date is not met, the credit will be applied to the following year's bill. All credit applications must follow the standards outlined in the Stormwater Credit Technical Manual (PDF).
