Action - Bill 24-17, Land Use Information - Burial Sites; and
SRA 17-01, Approval Procedures - Burial Sites
PHED Committee Recommendation:
On October 16, the Committee (3-0) recommended approval of Bill 24-17 with the following amendments to
Section 33A-17(d)2 and 3 that: 1) expand the scope of the inventory to the entire County1; 2) allow updates
as information becomes available; and 3) specifically allow inclusions and exclusions in the updating process.
These recommendations would revise Section 33A-l 7(d)2, at line 36, to read as follows:
The Planning Board must maintain, and revise as appropriate, an inventory of burial sites located
in the County. The inventory must:
include a map and a description of each burial site, including ownership information when
be made available to the public electronically; and
be updated at least annually or as information becomes available.
The Planning Board must establish a procedure for additions or exclusions to the burial site
inventory. The procedures must include an outreach program.
On October 26, the Committee recommended the effective date be the date proscribed by law (90 days after the
Bill becomes law).
The Planning Board has no authority in municipalities that have their own zone but, under this direction, the burial site
inventory may include sites in municipalities.
