Overview: The Town must amend the Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO) and other sections of the Town Code to conform with the changes to State law commonly referred to as '160D' before July 1, 2021. Council has held a series of discussions on the major changes required and will have an opportunity to review the full set of proposed amendments at the public hearing.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council adopt the resolution calling a public hearing on April 21, 2021 at the request of the Town Manager to amend the Chapel Hill Town Code and Land Use Management Ordinance to establish compliance with North Carolina State law.

Key Issues:
* Chapter 160D and various related provisions were established under Session Law 2019-111, enacted by the State in July 2019.
* Session Law 2020-25, enacted in 2020, incorporated technical corrections into Chapter 160D and set July 1, 2021 as the deadline to come into compliance with new State law.
* Council previously discussed the major changes required by 160D at meetings on
June 17, 2020; September 16, 2020; October 21, 2020; and February 17, 2021.
