(ROANOKE COUNTY, Va.) February 12, 2014 – The final Roanoke County Stormwater Advisory Committee rescheduled for February 27, 2014 at Glenvar Branch Library from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. This last meeting will be held for the public to evaluate and provide input to the recommendations that will be presented to the Board of Supervisors for consideration.
The Stormwater Advisory Committee has worked over the last several months to develop recommendations on how to comply with looming state and federal stormwater mandates. Roanoke County’s Stormwater Advisory Committee (SWAC) is comprised of community stakeholders that represent the interests of residents, businesses and non-profit organizations across Roanoke County and the Town of Vinton.
The committee has been charged with bringing recommendations to the Board of Supervisors in early 2014. These recommendations will include stormwater management priorities; appropriate and affordable levels of service; level of interest in public participation in stormwater management program activities; preliminary needs assessments; preliminary regulations and policies; and preliminary financial requirements along with funding mechanisms.
Meeting dates, times and locations have been posted to the Roanoke County website’s County Calendar, and interested citizens can subscribe to receive email reminders in advance of each meeting at the bottom of our Notify Me service page at www.roanokecountyva.gov/list.aspx.
