- District 10
This Act provides for the establishment of stormwater maintenance districts in New Castle County and for the collection and use of stormwater maintenance fees to help pay for maintenance in the districts. This Act is modeled on Chapter 52 of Title 9 that has allowed Kent County to create stormwater maintenance districts and differs only in format for clarity and to conform to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual. Under this Act, New Castle County will adopt an ordinance that provides the procedures and criteria related to the establishment of stormwater maintenance districts. The adoption of the ordinance is required to implement this Act. Once this Act is implemented, it is mandatory that any new subdivision or land development in any unincorporated area in New Castle County establish a stormwater maintenance district, if required to do so under the implementing ordinance. Subdivisions and land developments in existence when this Act is implemented may petition the county government to declare the area a stormwater maintenance district. A stormwater maintenance district may be established within an incorporated area, but only with the concurrence of the local governing body.
