Prepared by: Community Affairs Committee (CA)
Comprehensive plans are intended to provide for the orderly and balanced future economic, social, physical, environmental, and fiscal development in a county or municipality. Small-scale comprehensive plan amendments involve less than 10 acres of land, do not impact land in an area of critical state concern, preserve the internal consistency of the overall local comprehensive plan, and do not require substantive changes to the text of the plan. The local government is authorized to adopt a cumulative total of 120 acres of small-scale comprehensive plan amendments in a calendar year. HB 6017 repeals the 120-acre cumulative annual limit on small-scale development amendments that may be approved by a local government.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2019.
Vote: Senate 39-0; House 108-5
