Description

Conditional rezoning proffers. Makes extensive changes to conditional zoning provisions first enacted in 2016. Specific amendments include the addition of provisions stating that no local governing body shall require any unreasonable proffer. Under current law, no locality may request or accept any unreasonable proffer. Other changes (i) allow an applicant to submit any proffer that the applicant deems reasonable and appropriate, as conclusively evidenced by the signed proffers, (ii) rewrite provisions related to certain revitalization areas and floor area density standards that are excluded from the statute's requirements, and (iii) state that nothing in the bill shall be deemed or interpreted to prohibit communications between an applicant or owner and the locality or to prohibit presentation, analysis, or discussion of the potential impacts of new residential development or other new residential use on the locality's public facilities. The provisions of the bill are effective as to any application for a rezoning or proffer condition amendment filed on or after July 1, 2019, or to certain other pending applications. The bill also provides that an applicant with a pending application for a rezoning or proffer condition amendment that was filed prior to July 1, 2016, may elect to proceed under the law as it existed prior to that date, and an applicant with a pending rezoning or proffer condition amendment application filed after July 1, 2016, but before July 1, 2019, may elect to proceed under the law as it existed during that period.
