Greening Incentives and Ordinances

Greening Incentives and Ordinances means structuring incentives and zoning and development ordinances to conserve priority habitats alongside development.



Important: According to the UNC School of Government, Planning and Zoning Law Bulletin (No.22 (October 2013), “Section 10.2(a) of S.L. 2013-413 (H 74) acts as a moratorium on local ordinances related to environmental issues through October 1, 2014. Under the new law, a local government may not enact an ordinance regulating a field that is also regulated by a state or federal statute or rule enforced by an environmental agency unless that local government approves the ordinance by unanimous vote of the members voting.”
