Development agreements; Planning District 8. Requires every locality located in Planning District 8 to include in its zoning ordinance provisions for the governing body to enter into binding development agreements with any persons owning legal or equitable interests in real property in the locality. Such agreements shall be authorized by ordinance, shall be for a term not to exceed 15 years, and may be renewed by mutual agreement of the parties for successive terms of not more than 10 years each. Development agreements may provide, among other things, for specific land uses and the density or intensity of such uses. No locality shall either request or accept a cash payment as part of a development agreement whose amount is scheduled to increase annually, from the time of agreement until tender of payment, by a percentage greater than the annual rate of inflation.
