2010 Legislature: Development Near Canals

Representative Ben Ferry has introduced a new bill regarding development near canals. The bill is number House Bill 298 (HB 298) and is entitled "Land Use Authority Notification of Canal Development."

The bill seeks to amend the municipal and county land use, development, and management acts (commonly referred to as "LUDMA") by requiring municipalities and counties to notify canal companies of proposed development within 100 feet of the center line of a canal. In order to facilitate this notice requirement, canal companies will be obligated to provide the municipalities and counties with the company's contact information and a general description of the location of their canal(s).
