Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Clustering of single-family dwellings.  Deletes certain optional provisions regarding the clustering of single-family housing and reinserts those provisions as mandatory provisions of zoning or subdivision ordinances for counties and cities that had a population growth rate of 10% or more from the next-to-latest to latest decennial census year.  Such localities shall provide in their zoning or subdivision ordinances, applicable to a minimum of 40% of the unimproved land contained in residential and agricultural zoning district classifications, standards, conditions, and criteria for the clustering of single-family dwellings and the preservation of open space developments.  In establishing such standards, conditions, and criteria, the localities may include any provisions they determine appropriate to ensure quality development, preservation of open space, and compliance with their comprehensive plan and land use ordinances.  Furtheremore, the bill allows property located in an Air Installation Compatible Use Zone to be exempt from a requirement for administrative approval by a locality of certain types of cluster development.
