Section 5: Amendments


The Planning Staff may from time to time, and at the request of the Huntersville Town Board or Planning Board shall, prepare certain improvements to the text of the subdivision ordinance to correct errors, update or modify the requirements, or otherwise improve the operation of the ordinance in regulating the subdivision of land.

Amendments to this ordinance may only be enacted pursuant to public notice and public hearing on the proposed amendments. Notice of such public hearing shall be published once per week for two successive weeks in a newspaper of general circulation in the Town of Huntersville. The notice shall be first published not less than ten (10) days nor more than twenty-five (25) days prior to the date fixed for the hearing. The notice shall indicate the date, time, and place of the hearing and shall include a statement of the substance of the proposed amendment.

All text amendments must be referred to the Planning Board for a recommendation prior to final action by the elected officials. Failure of the Planning Board to act within forty-five (45) days following the public hearing will be deemed to constitute an affirmative recommendation on the proposed amendment. An action to defer a recommendation for cause will constitute an action for the purposes of this section
