Pervious Pavement Incentive

Pervious Pavement Incentive
The maximum impervious coverage of a lot or tract may be increased by up to 10 percent of the lot area if a corresponding land area is covered by Borough-approved pervious pavement.

For example, if a lot includes 10,000 square feet, and has a 50 percent maximum impervious surface requirement, and the lot will include 1,000 square feet of pervious pavement, then a maximum of 6,000 square feet of the lot may be covered by impervious surfaces instead of 5,000 square feet. In such example, 5,000 square feet of the lot could be covered with building roofs and paving surfaces that are impervious.
