The City of Forest Acres is considering adopting a stormwater buffer ordinance similar to the ordinance enforced in unincorporated Richland County. This ordinance would require the use of buffer yards separating development from creeks and waterways in certain situations in order to promote and improve water quality.
City Council would like to gather input from residents on the proposed ordinance. Please review the draft ordinance here, and e-mail any comments you may have to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate input from our residents, and look forward to hearing your thoughts.
The public hearing is tentatively scheduled to take place during the April 20th City Council meeting.
