The process by which Post-Construction Stormwater Ordinance (PCCO) mitigation payments are collected will change starting April 1, 2017.
Mitigation payments for stormwater management, stream buffer disturbance, and Natural Area will typically be required to be paid prior to release of approved plans from Land Development. However, if a payment deferral is requested for a commercial or multi-family project it will only be approved if a Letter of Intent (found in Appendix N of the PCSO Administrative Manual) is executed and an applicable Certificate of Occupancy hold can be placed on the project through Mecklenburg County’s Winchester permitting system.
Payment deferrals for single-family projects will not be deferred past he approval of the first plat of the subdivision.
