Current Bill Summary

SB 497 - Counties bordering a lake with at least 110 miles of shoreline may propose creating a planning and zoning commission for the areas of the county bordering the lake. Any proposal must be approved by a vote of the people of the county. Planning and zoning districts would extend from one to five miles from either the six hundred forty-five foot mark of the lake measured from mean sea level for the Lake of the Ozarks or the low water mark as determined by the Corps of Engineers for all other lakes. An incorporated city, town or village which has adopted planning and zoning, or any agricultural or horticultural property, shall be exempt from any planning and zoning provisions adopted pursuant to this act.

Lakes having at least 110 miles of shoreline are Lake of the Ozarks, Truman Reservoir, Table Rock, Stockton, Mark Twain, Bull Shoals, Smithville, Wappapello and Pomme de Terre. Norfolk lake would qualify if the shoreline measurement includes the area in Arkansas.

This act is similar to SCS/SB 18 (1995).
