5/15: Don't Weaken Local Control!
House File 330, the bill weakening local control, passed the Minnesota Legislature and is now on Governor Mark Dayton's desk. He must decide whether to sign the bill by midnight, Monday, May 15.
House File 330 weakens local control for cities by requiring in some cases a 2/3 super majority to enact an interim ordinance. Currently, an interim ordinance can always be enacted by a simple majority—that's how democratic rights should work. The interim ordinance allows a city to quickly enact a moratorium when unanticipated development is proposed that is of concern to the community. This is an emergency power that allows the community time to study the issue, review its zoning ordinances, and, if needed, adopt new zoning controls.
