AN ACT TO REQUIRE MUNICIPALITIES LOCATED WHOLLY OR PARTLY IN DAVIDSON COUNTY TO INFORM THE DAVIDSON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS PRIOR TO ANNEXING CONTIGUOUS PROPERTY AND TO REQUIRE MUNICIPALITIES LOCATED WHOLLY OR PARTLY IN DAVIDSON COUNTY TO OBTAIN THE APPROVAL OF THE DAVIDSON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS PRIOR TO CONDUCTING A SATELLITE ANNEXATION OF CERTAIN PROPERTY AND PRIOR TO REZONING CERTAIN PROPERTY ACQUIRED BY SATELLITE ANNEXATION.
Senate committee substitute to the 2nd edition makes the following changes.
Revises the proposed requirements for annexations by municipalities located wholly or partly in Davidson County as follows. Establishes separate requirements to supplement the provisions of Part 1, Article 4A, GS Chapter 160A (extension by petition), requiring the governing body to give at least 10 days' notice to the Davidson County Board of Commissioners of their intent to adopt the annexation ordinance. Changes the scope of the four supplemental requirements previously listed, making them applicable only to annexations under Part 4, Article 4A, GS Chapter 160A (annexation of noncontiguous areas) (previously, the four conditions were proposed to be supplemental to Parts 1, 4, and 7; Part 7 relates to annexations initiated by municipalities). Makes conforming changes to eliminate references to resolutions of intent in the previously included requirements, as now addressed in separate Section 1. Adds to the provisions applicable to annexations under Part 4, Article 4A, GS Chapter 160A, providing that, if the Davidson County Board of Commissioners adopts a resolution approving the annexation and the governing body adopts the annexation ordinance, any rezoning of areas annexed is prohibited without the approval of the governing body and the Board of Commissioners. Now excludes annexations of property used for single-family residential or multi-family residential purposes (was, at the time the annexation is initiated). Adds a new provision specifying that the act does not alter or amend SL 2012-54, which requires the Board of Commissioners to approve a city not primarily located within Davidson County's annexation of territory within the County. Changes the act's long title.
