Overview: Chapter 160D of NC General Statutes was established under Session Law 2019-111, which was signed into law on July 11, 2019. Over the next year, it will be necessary for the Town to update the Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO) and other sections of the Town Code to continue operating in compliance with State law. This item is an introduction to Chapter 160D and an overview of the proposed approach to updating our development regulations.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council receive the staff presentation and provide guidance on the proposed project approach.

Key Issues:
* Part I of Session Law 2019-111 is already in effect, and the Town will need to update some development review procedures to maintain compliance.
* Part II will take effect in the summer of 2021. As a vehicle for modernizing land use laws, Part II requires the Town to update LUMO and other sections of the Town Code to maintain compliance.
* Staff has proposed a project schedule with public outreach beginning this summer, in support of allowing Council action before the Part II effective date.

Fiscal Impact/Resources: There are no anticipated fiscal impacts from the project as proposed. Town staff plans to conduct the public engagement and develop the draft Code language.

Where is this item in its process?
