The Airport Commission agendas and minutes are posted on the following site.
In addition, the Development Case Manager serves as your single point of contact... you can call your Development Case Manager at any time.
You can still call any member of your review team directly – they will be able to answer questions concerning plan review on specific items such as International Building Code, stormwater or public improvement requirements -- but the Development Case Manager is always there to handle complex issues and the comprehensive overlapping review.
For example, your property may not be able to handle the project you've proposed, due to hillside slope, fire regulations, height limits or other regulations. The Development Case Manager will make sure you understand the situation in a timely fashion. More importantly, he or she will also ensure that issues are identified early in the process so we can suggest ways to modify your project to comply with regulations.
The Development Case Manager needs to be included in any discussions that resolve conflicting project-design issues, such as when a redesign of a portion of the project is needed, or involves competing code requirements. His or her job is to keep your project reviews coordinated and predictable.
If you can't meet your schedule, other dates may change. For example, if you have a public hearing as part of your review and it is postponed, the date for final action on your construction permit could be changed.
If an issue arises in your project with which you don't agree, the Development Case Manager is your contact to seek problem resolution. Just notify the Development Case Manager and he or she will take up your concerns with the appropriate staff, up to and including the Development Services Director.
The Development Case Manager, however, will still be there to ensure that you get to a decision point.

Low Impact Development (LID) is an ecologically friendly approach to site development and stormwater management that aims to mitigate development impacts to land, water, and air. This approach emphasizes stormwater management at the source, using small, cost-effective landscape features located at the lot level. The goal is to conserve natural systems and hydrologic functions on a site through the integration of site design and planning techniques.
Lots should be graded so as to drain surface water away from foundation walls. The grade away from the foundation wall should slope away at a 5:1 slope, or fall six inches within the first 10 feet, except where lot lines or walls, slopes, or other physical barriers prohibit. Drains or swales shall be provided to ensure drainage away from foundation walls.
Any landscaping done after purchase of the house must not interfere with the drainage pattern established by the original lot grading plan.
Generally, yes. The area to be filled or covered should be excavated to the depth or thickness of the proposed fill material if it would change drainage conditions. The excavated material can be hauled off or used for mound building (landscaping) in other parts of the yard as long as:
At this time, LID is generally not allowed in the ROW. However, proposed use in the ROW may be evaluated on a case-by-case basis as stated in the LID in the ROW Policy Memo.
Yes. However, if the LID components are sized to manage the runoff from the full one inch of rain, the requirement for detention of the two-year storm is waived.
Typically the native soils in most of the Flagstaff area are poorly draining; therefore, the use of underdrains are required unless the soils can be shown to have an infiltration rate of at least one inch per hour following the procedure given in the LID Guidance Manual Supplement.
Block walls and fences can create some of the most serious flooding problems. If at all possible, avoid constructing walls across any channel or wash. Walls or fences should not extend beyond the designated building envelope of your lot or encroach into any drainage easement.
Things to avoid if you have a wash on your property include:
For an individual property owner, maintenance responsibilities on a wash running through your property consist mainly of keeping it clean. This means keeping the wash:
The purpose of these steps is to maintain the free flow of water and not impede or reduce the water-carrying capacity of the wash or channel. Washes must not be filled in, plugged, blocked, diverted, or altered in any way.
The typical residential credit is approximately 10% of the monthly stormwater fee. Please view our Stormwater Credit Manual for qualification and application details. Stormwater Credit Manual
The stormwater staff members perform a variety of regulatory compliance functions. We are also responsible for the Stormwater Master Plan and the Drainage Improvement Program (DrIP). We also conduct construction inspections and site plan reviews.
Money collected from the stormwater fees is dedicated only to stormwater and cannot be used for anything else. The appropriate distribution of funds includes complying with federal water quality regulations as well as maintaining channels, structures, pipes, and other elements of the storm drainage system.
By Ordinance Section 12-02-002-0001, the stormwater utility fee became effective July 1, 2003. The stormwater fee is billed as part of the City of Flagstaff utility bill.
Impervious surfaces are those areas within developed land that prevent or significantly impede the natural infiltration of stormwater into the soil. Common impervious surfaces include:
The impervious area of properties is determined by using aerial photographs and information in the city’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) along with parcel lines from the county assessor's office.
Effective June 1, 2010, the average Flagstaff residential property will pay $3.90 per month for stormwater fees. This is based on a billable area of between 3,001 and 4,500 square feet of impervious surface. For more information and exact fees, please view the following page; Tiered Equivalent Rate Units
The stormwater fee and the impervious area calculation are a mechanism for equitably distributing the cost of the stormwater system maintenance and the need to comply with the federal mandate among all of the residents of Flagstaff who, in some way, use and contribute to the stormwater system and stormwater runoff.
ERU stands for Equivalent Rate Unit. It is calculated by the number of square feet of impervious surface on your property. This is then divided by 1,500 square feet to come up with an ERU. 1,500 square feet was determined to be the most equitable basis of distribution.
Yes, compacted surface is used in determining impervious area.
Sidewalks that are contained exclusively within your property boundaries are included in your utility fee calculation. Public sidewalks are not.
