The City of Raleigh has a text change that is up for public hearing on Tuesday, September 17th. This text change, TC-4-19, looks to add a requirement that if a builder/developer has 2 or more notices of violation (NOV) for sedimentation and erosion control within the last 2 years, then they will be required to submit a sedimentation and erosion control plan on subsequent permits pulled, even for lots under 12,000 square feet that do not currently require them.
The HBA attended meetings on this and was able to get the requirement changes to be 2 or more NOV's instead of the original 1 NOV that was suggested. Also, the "clock" for the 2 years starts from the date of the first NOV and then once 2 years passes from that, assuming no additional NOV's are acquired, there is no longer a requirement for a SEC plan for lots under 12,000 sq. ft.
