Do not pass stormwater regulations

DO NOT approve these regulations. They will encourage sprawl and discourage business


I am writing in opposition to the proposed stormwater management regulations.  These regulations  usurp local government planning authority and will have the unintended consequence of encouraging sprawl by making development in urban service areas more difficult to achieve.  In addition, these new standards for development will inhibit economic growth.
