Beginning this week, developers who incorporate Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) and energy efficient practices into their building or site plans can take advantage of the Green Raleigh Review process. Benefits include:

  • An assigned City plan reviewer to help direct plans through the process;
  • Feedback and support from an assigned Green Team (staff from Stormwater, Transportation, Urban Forestry, Public Utilities, and Development Services); and,
  • Reimbursement for Sketch Plan and Express Review fees.

To qualify for benefits associated with site plan review:

  1. Site plans must include GSI practices that capture and absorb stormwater runoff;
  2. Calculations are provided showing that the volume of stormwater runoff leaving the site after development will be no more than the volume of runoff before development (for a specified storm event).

To qualify for benefits associated with building plans:

  1. Site plans must qualify;
  2. Building plans incorporate green building energy practices such as geothermal systems, photovoltaic panels, and/or solar thermal panels.
