Upcoming Stormwater Workshop

Brent Denzin of Ancel Glink will be presenting at an upcoming workshop on stormwater management and natural resources protection, detailed below:

2014 Beyond Basics Workshop
September 9, 2014, 1 – 3:30 p.m., Morton Arboretum
Better Ordinances for Sustainable Stormwater Management, Natural Resources Protection, and More Vital Communities

The workshop will be presented by a team with expertise in engineering, planning, community development, and municipal law. It will address common ordinance implementation issues and opportunities, such as: 
  • Eliminating barriers in existing subdivision and zoning codes
  • Providing incentives, such as detention credits, for green infrastructure innovation
  • Emphasizing cost-effectiveness of new approaches
  • Long-term maintenance considerations
  • Being proactive in anticipating new state/federal regulations
  • Encouraging green infrastructure to also enhance community character and quality of life
Workshop participants will receive a comprehensive ordinance checklist that was developed initially by Geosyntec Consultants for several watershed planning projects. More recently, in cooperation with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, the checklist has been expanded with an extensive list of regional and national references.
