Regulatory Reform Act of 2018

Places into law numerous unrelated provisions. Of interest to cities, adds an additional topic to an ongoing legislative water/sewer enterprise study, requiring an investigation into the authority for mandatory connections of certain subdivision-level water/sewer systems. Also requires a study of a limited universe of state-delegated stormwater programs by the state’s top environmental regulatory commission. Finally, restores a budget provision that prevents cities from requiring schools to pay for transportation improvements as part of the land use approval process for those developments.

Local Bills Planning & Land Use Transportation

Grants Carteret County and the municipalities within the county the ability to implement regulations related to use of navigable waterways in their jurisdiction. These regulations would be akin to traditional land use regulations, such as size and placement of piers, docks, and other objects in the waterways, prohibitions on habitation of vessels on the water, and environmental protection of the waterways. These regulations would also be similar to traditional traffic safety regulations, such as mooring and speed of vessels. The regulations would not override existing state regulations of similar matters.
