Just say no. FIVE years!!! As I read 15.2-2223.1, this urban development area status covers most localities. I'd be interested in seeing a list of reasons a locality could claim such an exemption rather than this by-right exception. This seems like the kind of bill that would not promote good planning or a sense of urgency on the part of the locality to meet standards that were set up to protect our health.
