Low Impact Development (LID) Trainings for Realtors

Low Impact Development (LID), or Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI), requirements for new construction and redevelopment are coming soon in many cities and counties across the state. In May and June 2013, eight trainings for realtors were held across Washington state. These trainings focused on stormwater management techniques and why new requirements are being put in place, as well as how the changes may affect realtors and their clients. These trainings were free and provided 7.5 clock hours for real estate brokers and appraisers.
