What are plans for the storm water runoff with such a large footprint?

There will be two dry detention ponds in the plans along with properly engineered tiles and drains on the property.

 The engineer notes: All storm water runoff generated from the project will be collected and conveyed to the proposed storm water detention basins through new storm sewer pipes and grass swales.  The storm water will then be detained within the detention basins and released at a controlled rate into the miscellaneous drain which is where the site drains today. The detention basins will detain the water and release it at a rate of 0.18cfs/acre per the City of Fort Wayne Storm Water Engineering and Development Services standards and specifications. Storm water runoff leaving the developed site will be greatly reduced from the rate at which it leaves the site in its existing condition.
