SECTION 37-18-10


§ 37-18-10 Land use plan.

(a) All real property owned and held by the corporation shall be subject to a land use plan prepared by the office of state planning within the department of administration. No less than seventy-five percent (75%) of the land owned by the corporation, exclusive of the real property described in § 37-18-7, shall not be improved and developed and shall be held in perpetuity for conservation purposes, and the real property to be held in perpetuity for conservation purposes shall be delineated in the land use plan. The land use plan shall be mutually acceptable to the corporation and the town. Acceptance by the town of the plan shall not be unreasonably withheld. Upon acceptance of the plan by the town, the town shall amend its zoning ordinance adopted pursuant to chapter 24 of title 45 so as to conform to the plan. The zoning ordinance as amended shall govern the land use of real property owned by the corporation and the ordinance shall not be further amended in a manner inconsistent with the plan without the consent of the corporation; provided, however, that the ordinance shall not be amended in any manner affecting the land designated in the land use plan for conservation purposes.

(b) The corporation shall not be entitled to use any portion of the real property to be owned and held by the corporation until such time as the land use plan is adopted by the corporation and accepted by the town.
