The Act amends the zoning procedures law to clarify the process for challenging and appealing certain land use decisions. The Act codifies the long-standing appeals process for zoning decisions that existed prior to 2017 such that legislative zoning challenges will be reviewed de novo by a superior court. Additionally, the Act designates which local government employees receive notice of such zoning appeals.
