PROPERTY IMPROVEMENTS

When a property owner makes changes to a property by adding more than 576 s.f. of impervious area, such as roof area, asphalt pavement, concrete, etc., the owner must submit a Stormwater Control Plan to the City of Urbana. The Plan shall include a site plan showing the changes to the property and a grading plan showing the runoff of stormwater. For developments or redevelopments in excess of 10,000 s.f. of impervious area, the Plan shall also include stormwater runoff calculations showing the existing runoff and proposed runoff. The increase in stormwater runoff must be temporarily detained and released at the predevelopment rate. See Section 1163 of the Urbana Codified Ordinances for design requirements. Sidewalks are required on properties being improved per Section 913. Remember that all permits must be obtained from Champaign County Building Regulations @ 937-484-1602 and the City of Urbana Zoning Department @ 937-652-4322 prior to the project start.

UNDERGROUND UTILITIES

It is the property owner's responsibility before digging to contact the utility owners and have the existing utilities located. The Ohio Utilities Protection Service (OUPS) can be contacted at 1-800-362-2764. Remember that not all utility owners use the OUPS service and those not located by OUPS must be contacted directly. City utility records are available from the Engineering Department at 205 S. Main Street upon request. The following is a list of underground utility owners in the Urbana area:  Columbia Gas of Ohio @ 800-344-4077, CT Communications @ 937-653-2200, Dayton Power & Light @ 800-433-8500, Time Warner Cable @ 937-425-8850, City Water @ 937-652-4335, City Sewer @ 937-652-4331, and Pioneer Electric @ 937-653-7202. This list is intended to help the property owner, but may not be complete. Other underground lines such as telecommunication cables, etc. may also be in your area of development.
