Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation preempts local governments from enacting any zoning ordinances regulating "building design elements" which include such factors as exterior building colors, style or materials of roofs or porches, location or styling of windows or doors, interior layout of rooms, etc., so long as these elements meet minimum standard codes.  Exceptions are made for historic landmarks/districts.  It further goes to redefine and restrict zoning powers, perhaps in violation of the Georgia Constitution.
