Permitted provisions in the zoning ordinance; worker protection. Authorizes a locality to include in its zoning ordinance certain conditions as part of the grant of a special exception that permits development at a floor area ratio (FAR) greater than 1.0 or 25 units per acre, or requires the construction of or improvements to public facilities, public roads, or other publicly owned or managed areas. Such conditions may require a developer, directly or through its contractors, to enter into binding contractual commitments that provide certain protections for the skilled and unskilled workers hired to build the development project.
