STATE LAND USE AND DEVELOPMENT PLANS
(a) The Board
may adopt rules of procedure for itself and the District Commissions.
(b) The Board
may adopt substantive rules, in accordance with the provisions of 3 V.S.A.
chapter 25, that interpret and carry out the provisions of this chapter. These
rules shall include provisions that establish criteria under which applications
for permits under this chapter may be classified in terms of complexity and
significance of impact under the standards of subsection 6086(a) of this
chapter. In accordance with that classification, the rules may:
(1) provide for
simplified or less stringent procedures than are otherwise required under
sections 6083, 6084, and 6085 of this chapter;
(2) provide for
the filing of notices instead of applications for the permits that would
otherwise be required under section 6081 of this chapter; and
(3) provide a
procedure by which a District Commission may authorize a district coordinator
to issue a permit that the District Commission has determined under Natural
Resources Board rules is a minor application with no undue adverse impact.
subsection shall apply to lots within a subdivision:
(A) that were
created as part of a subdivision owned or controlled by a person who may have
been required to obtain a permit under this chapter; and
(B) with respect
to which a determination has been made that a permit was needed under this
(C) that were
sold to a purchaser prior to January 1, 1991 without a required permit.
(2) The rules
shall provide for a modified process by which the sole purchaser, or the group
of purchasers, of one or more lots to which this subsection applies may apply
for and obtain a permit under this chapter that shall be issued in light of the
existing improvements, facts, and circumstances that pertain to the lots;
provided, however, that the requirements of this chapter shall be modified only
to the extent needed to issue those permits. For purposes of these rules, a
purchaser eligible for relief under this subsection must not have been involved
in creating the lots, must not be a person who owned or controlled the land
when it was divided or partitioned, as a person is defined in this chapter, and
must not have known at the time of purchase that the transfer was subject to a
permit requirement that had not been met.
