Disclosures in land use proceedings. Requires members of boards of supervisors who have received a gift or donation having a value greater than $99, either singularly or in the aggregate, to make full public disclosure at or before any proceeding involving a proposed amendment to the comprehensive plan if such gift or donation was given by an interested party, including the title owner, contract purchaser, lessee, and developer of any affected land, to the proposed comprehensive plan amendment. This bill also requires board members to disclose if such gift or donation was made by a trustee, attorney, agent, real estate broker, immediate family or household member, or close financial associate of any interested party. Currently, board members must only make full public disclosure at or before a land use proceeding if the gift or donation given by an interested party has a value greater than $100, and the land use proceeding involves an application for a special exception, variance, or amendment of a zoning ordinance.
