Senate bill 25 the Clerk will read Senator Stam, Apodaca and [xx] Senate bill 25 a bill to be entitled and act to clarify for the county of all municipality may and acts on it. This is related to design an aesthetic controls. General Assembly of North Carolina enacts. For what purpose does the gentleman from Lake, Representative Dollar arise? To debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Mr. Speaker, members the Senate bill 25 comes to us really after about four year journey starting in 2011. This bill had previously passed the Senate and got tied up in the House and then the next session we passed it here in the House and it got tied up in this year hopefully we're going to get it passed in the both chambers in the same session, so we'll be in good shape the last time this bill was here it was as house bill 150 in the last session. We passed this bill I believe it was 94-22 on second reading and 98-18 I believe on 3rd reading. It is essentially the exact same bill that we passed the last time that it came here just to remind of the features of this bill. It does clarify that municipalities and counties, do not have the authority to regulate latest standings and this applies solely to single family and two family homes and this applies to the outside clading of the home porches exterior ornamentation that are non structural the location style of window those in doors location of those windows on their home. Garage doors the types rooms and interior layout of rooms, there are quite a number of exceptions that were addressed over the time that this bill was developed in the last four-five years this bill does not apply to any commercial structures does not that apply to multi-family structures, there are a range of exemptions with regard to a historic districts they own a national registry, matters of safety doesn't apply to manufactured homes, doesn't apply to items covered internatinal freight insurance, doesn't apply to screening and buffering as may be required and does not in any way prohibit a municipality or county from being able to regulate the height block orientation or the location on the own a lot. Let me just be happy to answer any questions, let me just say in summary that we do believe this bill is a balanced approach, it is in conformity to the latest rulings a few years ago in the land board decision for those who are familiar with that decision, it is supported by the Home Build Association and the realtors and it's also been a few years ago in the land board decision for those who are familiar with that decision, it is supported by the Home Build Association and the realtors and it's also been be able to have the homes that they want and it helps make those homes more affordable for for working people and I think that's the reason why housing advocates as well as the builders are unified in support this registration Mr. Speaker I would be happy to respond any question and will appreciate your continued support for what purpose does the gentleman from Brasaville Representative Aila rise? See if Representative Dollar will answer question does the gentleman from Wake yield to the gentleman from [xx] I yield He yields Thank you Mr. Speaker, [xx] pay with the beach are concern that the 10-15 bedroom may be described as one, two family bedroom is this [xx] the city take away the right of the city to deny the permit for 10-15 bedroom house which would be party house if someone

can fit it in to the lot under the book, under the size under the location of the lock of the lot the number of actual [xx] they would be able to regular like the number of bedrooms in a single family or two family dwelling Thanks to speak to the bill the gentleman from Brasaville has the floor to debate the bill And I will address this to everyone that representative Dollar let support the bill like this and just can't do it for that for reason not being in there, thank you purpose does the lady from [xx] Representative Michaux rise? To speak on the bill Lady has the floor to debate the bill what is gonna happens speak on the bill I would like the hands of representatives answer this question. The house is on the bitch since we have secretaries from the cities of Storm out-limited the limiting members Doling Mbars on behalf according to why your cities are your subject somewhere else. So, and I also wish to remind you that pigry houses pay for education in a cost of planning the tax pays payers, is very important to our gallies so why the cities would be the objecting to be yes? In the cause of yes, I have no Idea, they don't have control ladies becomes with their septic takes, and that's what controls it not five city council men. Thank you. Members on behalf of representatives Allan, Hermoton, Davis, and Carlin the chair is ready to extend the courtesy of the galley to the mayor of wellington chairman of the new county commissioners Jonathan Boyfield the mayor of the Raise of Bitch Bill Prayer[SP] and Wilmington City Council member Neal Anderson, and Carolina Beach Town Council member Sara Free, would you all please stand so that we can welcome you with us today.

OK, we'll try again and we also have an honorary page with us today Jordan fleming who is also the grand son who Representative Richardson. Jordan where are you? Thank you for being with us today, please join me welcome. For what purpose does the gentleman from Cumberland, Representative Glazier rise? To speak on the bill Mr. Speaker. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you very much Mr. Speaker. I'm going to make similar comments to what I made two years ago, when this passed the house when the bill first came up my sort of thoughts topic response was though I opt to be oppose to this and then you realize that that's not what we are here for and sometimes we ought to get pass our philosophy and kind of look at the governing principles and law and the laws seem to be pretty clear after Justice Jackson's opinion in land bill properties which represent Dollar alluded to if we are not going to change our view of what zoning regulations are designed to do and that is set out pretty clearly in 153A 341 and that is to deal with things like overcrowding and provide for avoiding undue concentration and lessening congestion and securing safety and securing appropriate services as needed well the color of my house doesn't fit any of those and weather I put up one type of siding or another doesn't fit any of those as general rule and so unless we are willing to change sort off what our viewer zoning is then too many cities and municipalities have gone to far which is what I think this is attempting to get back to and say what justice Jackson said in a five to two opinion land bill, that their are rights their are certain places in which all those things can take place and they are set out in the first think it's almost eight exceptions that are in the bill but their are basic property rights that are being balanced and effected here, municipalities can only go so far unless we change what their authority and jurisdiction Yes we don't do that in this bill and we don't do that in the statute and so all these bills to me is really doing is quantifying exactly what Justice Jackson said are the authorities of counties and municipalities on the land bill case, and their may be a day number one in which this body wants to reconsider sort of the zoning I don't think we are

at that day, and number two as I suggested to the home builders and even thou I agree very much with the bill and what they are trying to do it does live municipalities instead of resulting to sculpape to use sledge hammers and to go a different route and hopefully that wont happen but I do hope that the tension that's created continues to allow discussion on this topic and a resolution community by community where there's agreement, and if not, back at the legislature. But for now all I read this Bill is doing is clarifying what law really is and saying for those cities to determine whether I should have red paint or X window sill or particular trim on my house, that absence of  being one of the exemptions that's not a right that Municipal Ordinances ought to be doing across the state.  And so I'm supporting this bill and encourage everyone to do so. For what purpose does the gentleman for Durham, Representative [xx] rise? To speak on the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Members of the house, this is about design standards in cities and counties, where cities and counties have made a conscious decision to put these audiences on the book. They've concluded in the situation where they exist with one another. What we're doing here is once again playing the role of being a government to override of local government. Local governments have made decisions that they need these kinds of regulations in order to meet their cities terms of local governments better places to live and if the people of those local governments the citizens and at so called governments do not support this kinds of regulations they will they can and they will vote out the members of the council that and counties commissioners who have put these bills on the books. We should not at the level of the General assembly. Big governments, be telling local governments what to do, local governments can make their own choices. I would urge you to vote against the bill. Mr speaker. What purpose does the gentleman from Wake? Representative Stem rise. I would represent lucas Shew for question. Lucas or Loki? Lipti, does the gentlemen from Daram yield to the gentlemen from White? I won't go toward the Hill? Yeah the obvious thing, we do look alike. But yes I yeild for question. Representative Loki don't you think we can also improper this as we are protecting, people from big local government. I would say this Representative Stem, that the bigger government is the general Assembly, which is why I have problems with this bill, thank you. For what purpose does the gentleman from union representative Horn rise? Ask Bill Spencer question. Does the gentleman from Wake yield to the gentleman from union? you? He yields. Thank you representative Dollar. I just like to explain, whether this creates a problem for hormone associations, within a [xx] that may have architectural requirements, now just go count to that or just explain that it would have? No it does not have and I appreciate the question must you've listed that in the exemption does affect agreed upon home and associations covenant. For what purpose the gentleman from Cambaers, representative of Pavements rise? To debate the bill gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. Thanks sir, one main reason desire try to come to Lorry and one of my reason I got to become a Lorry was to reduce Gamma control of people's lives and property and I just feel it really to mention the HOA's, I feel like doing the opposite this bill is making the town defective of HOA and I sort look only part of that myself and I don't impose on others and so as I have told some Marken constitue who want this bill badly I can't wait to vote for. Thank you For what purpose does the lady from Orange, representative of Vinsco rise? To debate the bill. Lady has the floor to debate the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker. Members this bill will render any effective section 15.37 of a local

ordinance in Carvoral, I'm just going to read the while of items here and in any architecturally integrated sub division the developer may create labs and construct buildings without regard to any minimal a lot size is are set back for restrictions except with a lot boundaries a requirement should apply to the extend that they subdivided tracks a batch of land that is not part of this subdivision this seems to be common sense to me and a city ought to be able to say that if you if your land is next to a sub division then you have to have a certain set back that this bill will then allow our towns to do make a current decision happier to run this bill. What does the Jermer from back representative Torner Rus.  To ask full sponsor a question Does the general from Wake the general from back?  Thank you Mr. Speaker, the talking committee was reservedly part of discussions surrounding the size of this appartments and I think small towns like Hotsprings like to I don't want my grim to grew up I think about man treat things like we got towns that are very small and are trying to maintain a solid character that they have is part of their appeal there is part of what attracts tourists and business to them and a city like a Scalet or a Larry they can absorb a variety of different styles a lot easier but the towns it is 2 or 3 square miles thousand residents or less just curios if any thought was given to those small municipalities and tools they might have to maintain their science well to answer your question the abuses that we have seen have been birth from towns small medium and large and they are being addressed in here. However, I will point out that if you have an historic district that you got in a small town or if you have a district in which everyone volunteers to be governed by a certain set of rules and regulations then they can do that. They can certainly band together and say this is what we want for this particular special district. So there's certainly capable of doing that in many other cases that you're talking about. You're talking about commercial properties, and of course commercial properties are not impacted by this legislation. Follow-up Ladies and gentlemen, you have two additional questions, Heeves. Earlier this year if memory serves me correct, we voted on some inaxtion[sp?] legislation and where not 100% of the housing and the people living in that area wanted to be annexed and I believe that passed a chamber, is it a reasonable sort of horrible having to overcome that to think that 100% of the people would have to agree to a zoning regulation, is that something that we feel like realistically couldn't happen when we're willing to approach a annexation of lat time 100% approval. There are overly if I'm using the terminology correctly that are in place or around the states so that does occur, we've had plenty of examples around the state Mr. Speaker. For hat purpose doe the gentleman from Camblin representative Glazier rise? To see if representative Dollar might yield for question. Does the gentleman from Lake yield to the gentleman from Camplin? I yield. He yields. Thank you very much Mr. Speaker, representative Dollar, just so I'm clear on that, that's all it as this bill only deals with building design elements which is precisely defined in the bill on page two, is that no correct? That is correct. Follow up. Does the gentleman yield to an additional question? I yield. He yields. And those as I read it are only two of your bathing color, type of style of [xx] through your cladding materials styles or materials of the roof structure, exterior non structural architectural [xx] and location, architectural styling on the windows or garage, and the number of types of rooms not including kitchens and specifically does not include among other things, anything to do with the use or buffering, or screening, or other devices to minimize visual impact or medigate light or no ways to protect privacy, so it's a rather confined definition is it not? Yes sir it is.

Thank you. For what purpose does the lady from Caldwell Representative Miguel has to rise? To speak a second time on the bill. Lady has the floor to debate the bill a second time. Thank you Mr. Speaker, members I served for three terms as a town commissioner, in beach town in Emerald Isle, and some of the board members wanted to do this exact same thing, they wanted to tell people exactly what color they could paint their house, they wanted to tell them what color, what design they wanted how they want the windows to be, and thank God there were three of us on the five member board at that time, that voted against that. When people own property, it is there property. There are step back laws, there're all kinds of things you have to follow, but when it comes to telling what color of your house should be? What angle that rich of that roof pitch should be? Those things should be your choice and when a Representative [xx] was talking about his properties, that he was talking about worrying the [xx] area whether the septic. So there is a problem with [xx] how many bedrooms you can build but if someone has a big enough property he builds 17 bedrooms what the township will be doing if what he has he is doing all [xx] against noise and things like that to protect the neigbours they should not be telling that home owner or who owns that property how many bedrooms they can but in that house they lack to get those taxes back in but they don't like to have the big houses he said the neighbours were complaining I call those neighbors gold miners they have their homes they have their land and when someone comes in there is something a little different a little bigger, they don't like it, they got market so don't mind I will draw the bridge right now please vote for this bill. For what purpose does the general From Almes from representative rise? House bill sponsoring a question? Those are gentleman from Wake, you wil so the general from Melmed, I yield. He yields. I will see that I can freezes the correct way as far as new construction, you go in to a new neighborhood, or you are going to build new homes, mostly a pile of land I don't have a problem with the way this designed as far as colours and [xx] to clarify [xx] is I'm trying to do this from past experience. An old neighbourhood anything like it but in an established neighborhood that is [xx] where the structures are single family residents for example. Does this bill protect that neighbourhood if for whatever reason one of those homes was demolished or for some reason the home was gone, and another home was built back in its place. And I hope I'm making that clear. Infill development. Infill property. Right. That's one question, and then the other is, and this is going back to a problem that we had in my city, where you had an old established neighborhood, again it wasn't a historic neighborhood but it had big homes in it. A lot of character to the neighborhood, and then the problem that we started having a bad tan[sp?] or over 15 years ago was people buying these old homes in these established neighborhoods and going in and putting extra doors on it and I kind of think of turning those into boarding houses, which created a whole new array of problems and I guess what I'm trying to understand in this bill is, is that addressed or is that something that the city would no longer be to be able to have any control over, let's say whether somebody goes in to an existing neighborhood, and I'm talking about some really good old neighborhoods and turning a single-family home into a multifamily structure just by changing the number of doors and kitchens or whatever. If that's clear.  Well, of course, this is just sort of a side note. But as you know, in Burlington in Burlington[sp?], you can have single-family neighborhood and they will put in. The city allows attached multi-family or attached single-family housing to be put in those neighborhoods, so I'm not sure that I know what happens in Burlington, from my personal experience. But in terms of what you

are with respect to infield[sp?] development, obviously a builder is going to have to come with the screening, with  the bulk, the height, the orientation of that on that lot in conformity to what the city ordnance is would require, but the neighbors cant tell you how many windows to have on the front of your house, or what kind of cladding you can have on the front of that house anymore than you would have told them. When they build their house, what they had to build it out of, with respect to boarding, we believe that's addressed in here no other way it's addressed that is a commercial use, and in many neighborhood that am aware of will not be allowable already and can certainly be regulated by the city that any given neighborhood, you would be able to have those types of commercial uses. Follow up Does the gentleman heal to additional question? I heal. Heals. and I guess that's where am having a problem, a little bit of a problem, with it is I know we had Just a real hard time trying to regulate say a boarding house. I'm going to use that as an example because I've already used that. And of course you're going to have a neighborhood that gets upset, and rightfully so because I think I understand the part about what people have a right to do they want to do with their property, but sometimes that can be to the detriment of not only their property value but all the surrounding property values around them. And I just want to make sure in this bill that as far as an the infield piece of property, that we're not doing something here that's going to cause a problem down the road with an example like I used, the boarding house, and destroying the value of sorrounding properties around it. And there are multitudes of other problems that can come out of that type of situation property value is one that I think cities are sensitive to home owners in the neighborhood accented to it, that's what they want from the city leaders I believe the and we can talk to your planner I believe in the provision there with respect to zoning at the top, zoning of [xx] with respect to the top page to one through four, I believe responding your question, but let me Just answer it this way, there's nothing in this bill that will lead neighbourhoods to suddenly break out in a lashio of boarding boarding facilities whether they want two or three, that is not, that door is not being opened by this legislature Thank you For what purpose does the gentleman from Cleveland represents Speshali rise? To speak on the bill The gentleman hasn't forwarded bait the bill We put a lot of bills through here. I thought about that night that we were here for crossover, we were here or 12, 1/2 hours that North Carolina is better off that if we stay here 12, 1/2 hours passing up then I couldn't think of one of them. If this bill would have been there one night of North Carolina because all the arguments against us that I'm hearing are what about the town, what about the city and what about think and this and that. What about what the people think, what about what the property owners think, what about the costs involved when developers are told that you got to add this, you got to do this, no you can't use that type of clouding you got to use this type of planning which is twice as expensive makes the house much more expensive for people. There's a lot of this things, a lot of this [xx] designs that are imposed upon the builders and imposed upon people that add to the cost of the home, so why don't we, I don't know it's a noble concept, pass this bill and allow people to

build their homes the way that they should be able to build them. This isn't going to affect the structure show integrity to home because the city still have the authority to do that but if it doesn't affect the structural integrity to home such as whether the window goes or that the kitchen has to be located over here and not over here, I mean all that silly stuff that a city or town should not be telling you what to do in the first place. We know this, you know it and I know it because the best thing we can do is go ahead and pass this bill and at least walk out of here saying, Hey, we passed something that was worth passing. For what purpose does the lady from Orange, Representative Insko rise? To ask Representative Dollar a question. Does the gentleman from Wake yield to the lady from Orange? I yield. He yields. Representative Dollar, I understand the need for this bill for certain issues that I'm still concerned that there are unintended consequences, so I think that my question is similar to the one about the boarding houses. This provision here in the Cabro Town ordinances says, The number of dwelling units in an architecturally integrated subdivision may not exceed the maximum density authorized for the tract of land. So if you have R4 Zoning and  someone builds four houses you're within that, but if you convert those into more dwelling units then they would exceed the allowable dwelling units for that tract of land and I think that that's so, do you know if your bill would affect this? And I've read the bill and I think there's some question about whether it really does or not. Let me answer this, and I think it gets back to, as you say what Representative Ross was asking about. If you look at, and I think this is the right at the very bottom of the first page lines 34 and 35 the phrase, Building design elements, which is what we're talking about, Does not, does not include any of the following: height, bulk, orientation or location of a structure on a zoning lot. Two, the use of buffering or screening to minimize visual impacts or to mitigate the impacts of light, noise or to protect the privacy of neighbors, or three, and this gets at I believe what you're asking about and that is regulations adopted pursuant to this article governing the permitted uses of land or structure subject to the North Carolina Residential Code for one and two-family dwellings, and I'm not a lawyer but in legal terms that covers, I believe the issues raised both by yourself Representative Insko, as well as Representative loss and a couple of other factors For what purpose does the gentleman from Wake Representative Penddleton rise to speak on the bill Gentleman has the floor to debate the bill I speak in favor of this bill when I was county commissioner we have one town in that really go over board on restrictions on people even so I want to put white pad [xx] no you are going really is that middle skills speaking favor of this For what purpose does the gentleman from Pendle Representative Meyers rise? Does Representative Dollar question.   Does the gentleman from wale yield to the gentleman from Penda? I yield He yields Representative Dollar in your presentation just want to clarify that I heard correctly said this bill clarify for local government what the existing law already is regard to regulation when it come to our studies did I hear that correctly? Well, it clarifies and I believe it will be case law. Am looking over my lawyer over here. It will be case law particularly that coming out of a vandal[sp] versus cabelas[sp] county a few years ago. Yes sir, A follow up. Does the gentleman yield to an additional question I yield[sp] thank you representative Dollar for that response and also here in our discussion, just feel free to answer these or not, but they're individuals in our state. Is there private property protected? or is there property values protected? Meaning that do we have right to private property? Or my misconstrued this one has the right has the property value? I'm little concerned about some

of the comments that I heard you today and this one is if you can comment on whether we have delight to derive property or do we have some cut off right to most property value. Really confused about some comments. One question had into that question there are probably one of our sting determine is going to give you a better answer I just look at it as a layman, you are just protecting the rights of the property owner, the private property owner in terms of trying to build a home that fits their aesthetic depending on where they're building it and what are the circumstances surrounding it. I believe this bill is a very good balance between someone who owns up a home or property, someone who is developing a piece of property for that matter and the rights of the surrounding community I believe that there is a good balance there. It had gotten out of balance there and there were many examples are all over the state of it having got way out of balance. I believe this restores the appropriate balance and is in conformity to the decision rendered by the North Carolina supreme court. For what purpose does the gentleman from [XX] representative Haa rise?. To see if I can yield another question Does the gentleman from Lake yield from the gentleman from Bronson? I yield. He yield I think I find the way to support the bill under the I'm you read page one line 35 the term book, is that anything to do with square footage and that's all of them? Yes sir, that will be bill a correct interpretation, so you can't ill monster beyond what is allowable for that ward and in that zoning area. and that is not impacted on this legislation, thank you. To speak last time on the bill. The gentleman from [xx] ha the floor to debate the bill instead of focusing on [xx] I'm going to focus I'll be able to support the bill, thank you. For hat purpose does the gentleman from Ash representative Jordan rise? to debate the bill. The gentleman has the floor to debate the bill. I just at to make two quick points here that were made when this bill as 150 last session, and that is that the local government that were engaged in thee practice didn't have the authority in the first place and that's what the court case aid, that's what codified, they didn't have that authority in the first place to be doing thee things. The second is if they would like to do these things, then they can request a local bill to take care of it for their particular community. Thank you all for agreeing on this bill.
