Update on Legislation Undermining Local Planning and Zoning
The League is continuing to monitor and advocate against A-1294/S-2103. This legislation would authorize the conversion of certain office parks and retail centers to mixed-use developments regardless of municipal zoning regulations. Under the legislation a mixed-use development, that is those containing both non-residential and residential components, would be a permitted use, not requiring a variance, when the application seeks to convert an office park or retail center.
A-1294 and S-2103 have both already been reported out of committee. We are asking our members to review the legislation and consider adopting a resolution drafted by the League opposing this measure. We also encourage you to reach out to your legislative representatives to voice your concerns over this attempt to undermine local planning.
