Town of Ashland Ordinance Change

The Town of Ashland has incorporated an ordinance change that requires stormwater management for building permits on new construction that results in increased impervious area. The Town of Ashland requires stormwater fee payments for new construction of Single-family homes (not part of larger subdivision or plan of development with an approved BMP and stormwater management plan) and additions, decks, pools, patios, walkways (excluding ADA ramps) and accessory buildings, etc. of 50 square feet or more of new impervious area.  All fees collected by the Town of Ashland will help pay for larger stormwater management projects that will compensate for the new construction plus mitigate older developed areas that were built before stormwater management was a consideration.
