HB1604 by Guillen (Relating to the regulation of subdivisions in counties, including certain border and economically distressed counties.), As Introduced
The bill would amend the Local Government Code to remove the ability for a county to impose a higher standard for streets or roads in a subdivision than the county imposes on itself for the construction of streets or roads that were established on or after September 1, 1989.
The bill also would require a subdivider of land to be notified in writing about the nature of any violation and given 90 days from the notification date to cure the violation before enforcement action may proceed unless dwellings allegedly lack water or sewer services.
