Town of Huntersville Surface Water Improvement & Management – Stream Buffers Ordinance

Town Of Huntersville   
| Suburban | Rural
This ordinance amends the current zoning regulations to create a “stream buffer network” that will filter pollutants, store floodwater, provide habitat, and contribute to the “green infrastructure.” The buffer is divided into three sections, streamside zone, managed use zone, and upland zone. Each zone has varying level of restrictions, the streamside zone being the most restrictive and the upland zone being the least restrictive.
