What an I allowed to do within the RPA?
Except under very specific circumstances, new development (new construction, expansion) in the RPA is limited to those that are considered "water dependent uses." All land disturbing activities proposed within the RPA must first be approved by the City. A property owner would need to submit a Water Quality Impact Assessment explaining the impacts of the activity and what actions will be taken to reduce these impacts.
