Development Plan


If the state intends to develop or operate a qualifying project under this chapter, the state entity proposing to develop or operate the project may adopt a development plan on the real property associated with the project.


The purpose of a development plan is to conserve and enhance the value of real property belonging to the state, taking into consideration the preservation of the health, safety, and general welfare of the communities in which the real property is situated.


The plan must address local land use planning ordinances, which may include the following:


allocation and location of specific uses of the real property, including residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, or other appropriate uses;


densities and intensities of designated land uses;


the timing and rate of development;


timely delivery of adequate facilities and services, including water, wastewater collection and treatment systems, parks and public recreational facilities, drainage facilities, school sites, and roads and transportation facilities; or


needed zoning and other land use regulations.


The plan must comply with existing rules, regulations, orders, or ordinances for real property development to the extent the rules, regulations, orders, or ordinances are not detrimental to the interests of the state as determined by the special board of review.
