RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS FOR CURRITUCK COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA ESTABLISHING LEGISLATIVE AGENDA AND REQUEST FOR THE INTRODUCTION OF LOCAL ACTS BY THE COUNTY’S LEGISLATIVE DELEGATION

WHEREAS, the North Carolina General Assembly convened its 2017-2018 Session on January 11, 2017; and

WHEREAS, the Board of Commissioners for the County of Currituck desires that the county’s legislative delegation introduce and support the adoption of local acts beneficial to the citizens of Currituck County.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Board of Commissioners for the County of Currituck, North Carolina that:

Section 1. The County of Currituck requests that Representative Bob Steinburg and Senator Bill Cook sponsor, introduce, and support the following legislation:

Authorize Currituck County to Use Developer Funds for Construction of Roads to Allow for Interconnectivity of Subdivision Streets and Roads

Pursuant to G. S. 153A-331 a county may by ordinance provide that in lieu of street construction a developer may provide funds to be used for development of roads to serve occupants, residents or invitees to the subdivision. The statute requires that the county transfer the funds to a municipality to expend funds outside its corporate limits for the street construction. Without municipalities, Currituck County is unable to use developer provided funds for purposes authorized by the statute or as required by the county’s Unified Development Ordinance. Currituck County requests the same authority granted to municipalities under G. S. 160A-372(f).

Authorize Currituck County to Adopt Ordinances Requiring Certain Life Safety Measures for Single Family Residential Dwellings 5,000 Square Feet or Greater in Size

To respond to life safety concerns in large residential structures, especially those rented on a weekly basis by persons not familiar with such structures, Currituck County requests authority to require by ordinance the installation of 13D residential sprinkler systems, deck and floor loading equivalent to nonresidential building loading requirements and exit lighting in residential structures containing 5,000 square feet or more of floor surface area.

Section 2. The County Manger, County Attorney and Clerk to the Board of Commissioners are directed to forward a copy of this resolution to Representative Bob Steinburg and Senator Bill Cook with supporting documentation.

Section 3. This resolution shall be effective upon its adoption.

ADOPTED this 20th day of February, 2017.
