CHAPTER 565

AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 4526, CHAPTER 45, TITLE 31, DELAWARE CODE, RELATING TO CONSENT IN CONNECTION WITH MODIFICATION OF URBAN RENEWAL PLANS.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Section 4526, Title 31, Delaware Code, is repealed and a new Section 4526 is inserted in lieu thereof to read as follows:

An urban renewal plan which has not been approved by the governing body when recommended by the Authority may again be recommended to it with any modifications deemed advisable. A redevelopment plan may be modified at any time by the Authority provided that if modified after the lease or sale of real property in the urban renewal project area, the modification must be consented to by the redeveloper or redevelopers, or his successor or their successors who acquired seventy-five per cent of land in the project area, and whose interest may be affected by the proposed modification.

The notice of the proposed modification shall be sent by certified mail to the last known address of the redeveloper or redevelopers of the real property or his successor or successors, who shall have thirty clays from the date of the notice to state his or its objections to the modification. These objections will be submitted to the governing body at the time of the hearing. If no objections are made within the thirty days from the date of the notice, then the Authority may recommend the plan and state to the governing body that there were no objections.

Section 2. The provisions of this Act shall be effective only to the City of Wilmington.

Approved June 12, 1970.
