I'm looking to purchase some commercial property, but it has a drainage easement on a portion of it. Does anyone know if you can pave over the easement for parking, or does it have to remain undeveloped? I've tried looking in the uniform development code but could not find anything.
Thanks

If I'm not mistaken, you can not put anything permanent on easements. I believe paving the easement would fall under this category. Also, that would probably disrupt the drainage flow and lead to flooding of other lots nearby.

To the best of my knowledge Steel Man is 100% correct. It is unlawful to disrupt /deter/ alter drainage for the reasons that he mentioned.

I would call 311 in the morning and ask to speak to someone with COSA Streets and Drainage.
