Effective approaches to Changing Laws

Effective approaches to Changing Laws

The state does not do the definitions of the zoning, that is done on the county level.

Important to include in passing anything new:  Reasonable efforts must be being made by the sustainable community for larger community participation and neighbor approval.  If neighbors complain, they have to have specific grounds for that. But once your project is approved and legal, their complaints do not endanger you.

What do we want to change that is not covered by law? Main problems are around zoning, building codes, health department codes, but not in the farming practices.  Grey water, composting toilets, non-ag social activities, communal living, alternative building materials and design, building uses, having more than one residence on a TMK, over 15 acres for a special use permit.
