Town Completes Work on Grant to Develop Stormwater Regulations

In the summer of 2015, the town received a $6,500 grant from the Piscataqua Region Estuaries Partnership (PREP) to propose stormwater regulations for development and redevelopment.   The committee was formed later that fall and worked throughout 2016 to complete a proposed draft, based upon model stormwater regulations developed by the Southeast Watershed Alliance.  Here is the final report submitted to PREP and the draft stormwater regulations.    The draft is now in the hands of the Planning Board who will take the next steps to review and act upon the regulations.

Committee members were Pat McLin (Planning Board), Mike Lapoint (Water District Commission), Mike Rollo (Select Board), and John Krebs, the town’s planning consultant.  Liz Durfee from the Strafford Regional Planning Commission served as the project manager/consultant.   The Select Board is grateful to the committee for their time and effort, to Liz Durfee who guided us through our paces and kept us on target and to John Krebs who generously donated his time to the grant.

The Town of Rollinsford is an MS4 stormwater permittee requiring the town to manage its stormwater runoff responsibly.
