Public Hearing - Proposed NCGS 160D Amendments to County Planning Documents

Summary:

summary

 

The Board will hold a public hearing to listen to comments regarding proposed NCGS 160D Amendments to County Planning Documents.  The proposed amendments are available online at <https://rutherfordcountync.gov/departments/planning/index.php>.

 

In 2019 the NC General Assembly adopted the long debated and worked upon Chapter 160D which is the first major recodification and modernization of municipal and county development regulations since the early 1900’s.

 

The changes to the statutes as a result of 160D affect the language of local ordinances, the option for local decision-making processes, and administrative practices related to development regulations.

 

The text amendments to County ordinances are necessary as portions of 160D denote mandatory legislative changes for local jurisdictions, which staff and legal counsel have worked to ensure that the County’s ordinances are compliant with state statute. The majority of amendments are statutory reference changes and all textual amendments are shown with blue font in the final drafts.

 

These amendments are presented for the Board’s consideration.  The Planning Commission, Manager, Legal Counsel, and staff recommend adoption in order to be in compliance with NC Statutory guidance.
