§

731. Failure to observe land-use ordinance; conferences

In the event

that the supervisors of a district find that the provisions of a land-use

ordinance adopted according to the provisions of this chapter are not being

observed on particular lands, and that such nonobservance tends substantially

to increase erosion on such lands and substantially interferes with the

prevention or control of erosion or conservation of natural resources on other

lands within the district, the supervisors may summon the owner of the land to

appear before them to discuss the failure of the owner to observe the

regulations, and to perform particular work, operations or avoidances as

required by ordinance of the district, when the nonobservance tends

substantially to increase erosion on the lands and substantially interferes

with the prevention or control of erosion or conservation of natural resources

on other lands within the district. By conference thus convoked, the

supervisors and the owner of land not observing the ordinance adopted by the

district, shall together make and sign a finding as to the issues which are

involved in the failure of the owner to observe the ordinance of the district.

Upon the basis of such findings and if, after conference, it appears to the supervisors

that there are great practical difficulties or unnecessary hardship involved in

the full observance of the ordinance of the district, the supervisor shall

endeavor to work out a program with the owner, as shall be acceptable to the

owner and shall enable the owner to comply with the ordinance. (Amended 1995,

No. 163 (Adj. Sess.), § 12, eff. May 15, 1996.)
