Incentivizing Low Impact Development in Connecticut Communities


2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.


Low Impact Development (LID) refers to environmentally-friendly construction practices that maintain or replicate site hydrology (flow of water) as close to pre-development conditions as possible. LID promotes better water quality, a lower risk of flooding, and numerous benefits to wildlife and ecosystems. In this session, attendees will learn how to design an incentive program based on the needs and challenges of their specific town that will encourage LID.


  • Define "low impact development"
  • Describe the benefits of LID for a municipality
  • Identify the different stages during a development process where an incentive could be placed
  • Identify the different types of incentives that can be applied to LID
  • Design their own incentive program using the steps outlined
  • Respond to potential criticisms of an LID incentive.
