Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Zoning Division of the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that a property owner, or a developer or contractor having the written permission of the property owner, shall not have any approvals under the Zoning Division denied because of a law or ordinance enacted or adopted after the date on which the property owner, developer, or contractor: (1) participated in a concept meeting for construction with representatives from a municipality regarding the subject property; (2) filed a building permit application with a municipality for the subject property; (3) presented a proposed development plan to a city council for the subject property; (4) substantially invested resources in the preparation of building plans, concept drawings, or securing building contracts for a preceding period of one year for the subject property; or (5) otherwise gave sufficient notice of an intent to develop to the pertinent regulatory authorities for the subject property. Allows suit against the State or a unit of local government that seeks to enforce or impose a more restrictive law, regulation, ordinance, or resolution against the property owner, developer, or contractor and allows for a $5,000 civil penalty and other damages if the property owner's, developer's, or contractor's claim is successful. Limits home rule powers.
