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) to continue planning and zoning functions in compliance with State law. 

 

Recommendation(s):

 

For the LUMO text amendments, that the Council adopt the Resolution of Consistency and enact Ordinance A.

 

For the Town Code amendments, enact Ordinance B.

 

Decision Points:

                     Staff recommends delaying action on the petition submitted during the 160D public hearing to allow for a more complete evaluation of the request and for review by the Planning Commission.

 

Key Issues:

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

                     As a vehicle for modernizing North Carolina’s land use laws, Part II requires the Town to update the LUMO to comply with this newly enacted State Statute.

                     At previous Work Sessions, Council provided input on eliminating Conditional Use District Zoning, determining which approvals had Vested Rights, and how to utilize advisory board/commissions when considering Special Use Permits.  Staff incorporated all input received from these Work Sessions into the proposed LUMO text amendments.

 

Fiscal Impact/Resources: Codifying these text amendments will require funding from Communication and Public Affairs budget.
