Application for Waiver and Variance
The City of Baltimore Department of Public Works is accepting public review and comments on this project’s application for a waiver and variance to the Baltimore City Stormwater Management Ordinance 10-277. The applicant must provide stormwater management for the proposed project whether or not the waiver and variance are granted.
Applicant: The Bryn Mawr School, Inc., 109 West Melrose Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21210
Project Description: The site in question has an area of 109,280 square feet or 2.51 acres. The Bryn Mawr School is proposing to replace an existing natural grass athletic playing field with an artificial turf surface, to construct new bleachers and to install new handicapped and pedestrian walkways. The project meets the requirements of the 2010 Baltimore City Stormwater Management Ordinance to provide Environmental Site Design to the Maximum Extent Practicable
The Applicant is requesting a Quantitative Control Waiver in accordance with Section 23-1(A)(1) of the City Code. The Applicant has demonstrated through engineering studies that unmanaged 10-year and 100-year storm events for the proposed development will not cause erosion, flooding, or an adverse impact on the receiving waters or downstream stormwater conveyance system.
In addition, the Applicant is requesting a variance in accordance Section 24-3 of the City Code for a handicapped access walkway and a reconfigured pedestrian plaza.. These new impervious areas do not drain directly to the proposed stormwater management facilities, and physical constraints do not allow the provision of alternate Best Management Practices (BMP’s). Furthermore, the full water quality volume requirements for these areas are exceeded by other BMPs on the site.
