When a Property That Violates Zoning Law Is Allowed to Continue Because It Preexisted the Law

B. A zoning order does not require a special exemption or special use permit for small-scale conversion of biomass if: (i) at least 50 per cent of the feedstock is produced on-site or by the owner of the conversion plant; (ii) any structure used to convert the raw material into energy occupies less than 4,000 square feet without the space required for the storage of the raw materials; and (iii) the owner of the holding informs the administrative manager of the place where the processing takes place. Sites may impose appropriate setback requirements, minimum land area, and restrictions on operating hours and maximum noise levels for small-scale biomass conversion. No setback, land area, operating hours or noise requirements can be more restrictive than comparable regulations for other agricultural structures or activities. `temporary family health care structure` means a mobile housing structure that provides an environment that facilitates the care of a caregiver to care for a person with a mental or physical disability who: (i) is primarily assembled in a location other than the site; (ii) is limited to a resident who is the person with a mental or physical disability or, in the case of a married couple, two residents, one of whom is a person with a mental or physical disability, and the other requires assistance with one or more activities of daily living within the meaning of sections 63.2 to 2200, as confirmed in writing by a Commonwealth medical officer; (iii) does not exceed 300 gross square feet; and (iv) complies with the applicable provisions of the Industrial Construction Safety Act (§§ 36-70 et seq.) and the Uniform State Construction Code (§§ 36-97 et seq.). Temporary family health care facilities on a permanent basis are neither necessary nor permitted. Specify which fair housing practices are best described in each statement: Encouraging people to sell or rent real estate by claiming entry into a protected class will reduce property values, and zoning ordinances may provide for the end of non-compliant uses through appropriate depreciation by-laws. These depreciation provisions, which allow the continued operation of the use for a period deemed sufficient to recoup the investments invested in the use, generally apply to restrictions or prohibitions imposed on billboards. G. Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent a place from ordering the removal of a non-conforming mark that has been abandoned after a reasonable attempt to notify that owner. For the purposes of this section, a sign is deemed abandoned if the establishment for which it was erected has not been in operation for at least two years.

Each place may provide by by-law that, after the expiry of the two-year period, any abandoned non-compliant sign shall be removed by the owner of the land on which the sign is situated if the place so notifies. If, after the expiry of the two-year period, the site has made a reasonable attempt to notify the owner, the site may, through its own agents or employees, enter the property on which the sign is located and remove such a sign if the owner has refused. The cost of this move will be borne by the owner of the property. Nothing herein shall prevent the venue from seeking injunctive relief from a court of competent jurisdiction requiring the removal of such nonconforming sign abandoned by the owner by injunctive or other appropriate remedy. One. The provisions of this section apply to all counties or cities that experienced a population growth rate of 10% or more between the penultimate census year and the last census year, according to the population reported by the United States Bureau of the Census. However, the requirements in this section do not apply to counties or cities with a population density greater than 2,000 people per square mile, according to the most recent report from the U.S. Bureau of the Census.

H. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, nothing herein shall be construed to prohibit or require communication between any applicant or owner and the Location. The applicant, the owner and the locality may initiate discussions before and after the submission on the potential impact of a proposed new residential development or new residential use on the public facilities listed in Subdivision A and on other public facilities on the site, as well as possible on-site or off-site voluntary offers that are permitted under Subsections C and D that could address these impacts. These oral discussions should not be used as a basis for requesting an unreasonable offer or a change in the condition of the venue.
