The purpose of this Article is to supplement regulations and standards established in this Chapter to effectively mitigate soil erosion, sedimentation and stormwater (collectively "surface water") runoff during and following any land disturbance including grading, building and landscaping.

A. 
Any application for a building, demolition or grading permit which would result in the following shall be accompanied with a erosion, sedimentation and stormwater control plan:
1. 
A decrease in the permeable surface of a lot, or
2. 
An alteration to the existing grade or elevation of a lot, or
3. 
A change in the existing flow in terms of location, direction, rate or volume of surface water from a lot shall be accompanied by detailed plans and calculations identifying and comparing pre-construction grading and post-construction grading relative to erosion, sedimentation track out, stormwater runoff and grade/elevation conditions.
4. 
The City may require the following to be include in this plan if not otherwise required elsewhere in this Chapter:
a. 
Proposed dates, timing and sequencing of the project including installation of sediment controls, clearing, rough grading, construction, paving, final grading and landscaping.
