Summary as passed: (all summaries)

Vested property rights. Provides that if a structure is one that requires no permit, and an authorized local government official informs the property owner that the structure will comply with the zoning ordinance, and the improvement was thereafter constructed, a zoning ordinance may provide that the structure is nonconforming but shall not provide that such structure is illegal and subject to removal solely due to such nonconformity. The bill provides that in any proceeding when the authorized local government official is deceased or is otherwise unavailable to testify, uncorroborated testimony of the oral statement of such official shall not be sufficient evidence to prove that the authorized local government official made such statement. The provisions of the bill are declared to not be deemed retroactive.
