This legislation contains provisions pertaining to local planning and zoning issues, particularly regarding sites adjacent to natural streams and waterways. Certain counties are authorized to form county planning commissions, which direct and oversee planning and zoning decisions. Plans for developments or public improvements are subject to approval by county planning commissions, and commissions may also regulate the types of structures permissible on land in their jurisdiction. This legislation also addresses land acquisition for landfill purposes in certain counties. No additional restrictions are placed by this legislation on open-cut or strip mining; commercial structures are permitted in all districts except those zoned for residential or recreational use.
