4:24-23. Supervisors to formulate regulations; public hearings; submission to state committee; objections by landowners
The supervisors of any district shall have authority to formulate regulations governing the use of lands within the district in the interest of conserving soil and soil resources and preventing and controlling soil erosion. The supervisors shall conduct such public meetings and public hearings upon tentative regulations as may be necessary to assist them in this work. After such hearings the supervisors shall draft such land-use regulations as seem to them necessary to carry out the provisions of this chapter. These regulations shall then be submitted to the state soil conservation committee which may within thirty days suggest amendments thereto for consideration by the supervisors. Thereafter the supervisors shall give due notice of the regulations by publication and by posting. Any landowner may, for a period of sixty days thereafter, file with the supervisors his objections to the adoption of said regulations, said objections shall be made upon a form to be furnished by the supervisors. If objections are filed by owners of at least twenty-five per cent of the acreage of the district, the supervisors shall not have authority to enact said regulations, otherwise the supervisors shall thereupon take such affirmative action as may be necessary to make such land-use regulations effective. Land-use regulations adopted pursuant to the provisions of this article shall be binding on all landowners within such district.
