Effective Date: May 14, 2013
Amends the County Land Use, Development, and Management Act (Chapter 17-27a of the Utah Code), but not the Municipal Land Use, Development, and Management Act, by creating a definition of “Site Plan,” which means documentation or a map required to help show that a proposed development meets land use requirements. The bill prohibits counties from requiring that a property owner revegetate or landscape “a single family dwelling disturbance area” (which is not defined). The bill enacts § 17-27a-522, which provides that a site plan (1) if modified, may not be used to impose a penalty, (2) does not represent an agreement for a specific layout, (3) does not bind an owner from future development on the property (or modifications to development of property), and (4) is superceded by the terms of a building permit.
NOTE: H.B. 130S also enacts a § 17-27a-522 which is different than the section adopted by this bill.
