Bill summary

Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.

Deletes the proposed suspension of the Town of Leland's authority to annex territory under Article 4A, GS Chapter 160A, until July 1, 2024.

Eliminates the proposed changes to GS 160A-31, applicable to the Town of Leland only, requiring a petition by property owners to a governing board to annex any territory contiguous to the municipality's boundaries for which all property owners in the area have signed the petition, to also include a statement that each owner's petition for annexation is not based upon any representation by the municipality that a public enterprise service available outside the corporate limits of that municipality would be withheld from the owner's property without the petition for annexation. 

Further amends the provisions of GS 160A-58.1(b), which sets standards for noncontiguous areas proposed for annexation by a city by petition, changing the limitations to require that the nearest point on the proposed satellite corporate limits be no more than 1.5 miles from the primary corporate limits of the annexing city (was, no more than three miles). Makes the changes to GS 160A-58.1 applicable to petitions for annexation received on or after the date the act becomes law (was, applicable to petitions for annexation approved on or after June 30, 2024).
