SG-W:/ Joint Planning Bill Gets Hearing on Wednesday


On Wednesday afternoon, the House Land Use and Environment Commitee will
take up HB 4284, legislation to create Joint Planning Commissions, sponsored
by Rep. Chris Kolb and developed in consultation with MEC and PIRGIM.  This
new act would allow local units of government to share planning commissions
and create land use plans that cover broader geographic jurisdictions.  The
new law would remove one of the main barriers to cooperation -- differing
planning statutues for different types of municipalities.  Under the new
law, joint planning commissions could choose a single planning act that
would apply to all the participating governments.  

I encourage you to send a note to the members of the committee expressing
support for this bill.  If you have any questions, please feel free to
contact me.
