Overview: Chapter 160D of NC General Statutes was established under Session Law 2019-111, which was signed into law on July 11, 2019.  Before July 1, 2021, it is 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 a continuation of discussions with Council on June 17, 2020 <https://chapelhill.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4569906&GUID=0CE76AA5-06B3-4421-8884-D0D1FBD81E30>, September 16, 2020 <https://chapelhill.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4640115&GUID=B6921C68-D711-4649-A7AC-E69FC5474889>, and October 21, 2020 <https://chapelhill.legistar.com/LegislationDetail.aspx?ID=4671429&GUID=0ACB18C0-C5F2-493B-9314-9174C436C4EF>.

 

Recommendation(s):

That the Council receive the staff presentation and provide guidance on the identified Policy Choices.

 

Decision Points:

                     Appropriate involvement of Planning Commission and other Advisory Boards in the Special Use Permit review process

                     Who hears appeals of decisions made by the Historic District Commission

 

Key Issues:

                     Part I of Session Law 2019-111 is already in effect and has impact on how the Town conducts development review procedures. 

                     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.

                     At previous Work Sessions, Council provided input on eliminating Conditional Use District Zoning and determining which approvals had Vested Rights, along with other topics returning for discussion at this Work Session.
