Section 5: Amendments

5.000 AMENDMENTS

The Planning Staff may from time to time, and at the request of the Huntersville Ordinance Advisory Board, Huntersville Town Board or Planning Board shall, prepare certain amendments to the text of the Subdivision Ordinance to correct errors, update or modify the requirements, or otherwise modify 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 Town Board.  If no written report is received from the Planning Board within 30 days of referral of the amendment to that board, the governing board may act on the amendment without the Planning Board report.
