Procedures for approval of planned unit developments in some second-class cities and villages will change under a bill passed March 31.
Currently, a county that has adopted a comprehensive development plan and is enforcing subdivision regulations must approve a planned unit development in a second-class city or village’s extraterritorial zoning jurisdiction.
LB875, introduced by Gretna Sen. John Murante, removes the requirement that the county must approve the plan in a county with a population between 100,000 and 200,000. Sarpy is the only county impacted by the bill.
A second-class city or village still will be required to submit a planned unit development to the county planning and public works departments for review.
The bill passed 47-0.
