The UNC School of Government has new Chapter 160D resources available! This is the new statute reorganizing and modernizing development regulation statutes.
Online Training Modules
The School produced a series of short training modules (online videos) to give an overview of the specific changes in Chapter 160D. Module topics include Comprehensive Plan Requirement, Legislative Land Use Decisions, Administrative Land Use Decisions, Judicial Review, and more.
The written resources posted online include a checklist of changes needed for local ordinances, an update to the annotated bill, cross-over charts to compare Chapter 160D to the old statutes, and more.
School faculty will be on the road in January for regional workshops. Durham & Asheville workshops have already sold out and others have limited availability, so reserve your seat soon. The workshops are intended for planners, zoning officials, and other local government staff who handle development ordinances. Note that participants are expected to view the training videos and review the checklist of changes in advance of the workshop.
The Chapter 160D Book will be available in January. It includes an extended explanation of Chapter 160D and a collection of the related resources (annotated bill, checklist, crossover charts, etc.). On the book website you can click a button to get a notice when the book is available. Workshop participants will get a copy of the book at the workshop.
You can find more information about all of these resources on our Chapter 160D website: nc160D.sog.unc.edu.
