The City of Raleigh adopted regulations in 2017 to make it easier to include green stormwater features in land development. By using these features, you'll reduce environmental impacts on streams, lakes, and rivers.
This program is part of Raleigh’s Sustainable Business Toolkit, a collection of programs designed to help businesses and other organizations save money and help reach the goals in the city’s Community Climate Action Plan.
- Add cisterns, permeable pavement, green roofs, and rain gardens into building and landscape features; and
- Disconnect downspouts from storm drains and streets.
- Conserve natural resources
- More efficient use of a development site
- Lower construction costs
- Increase property values
