NL 4-23 Public Property Protection Act - Update or Reclassify

Post by Lyubov »

Refers to "City" and "Guild". Requires a 10 day moratorium before any modifications made to public structures on public land, to be approved by the RA. Could simply be updated to "LUC" and "CDS"?

I vaguely remember we codified a delay of changes to the public layout of the regions elsewhere? If so, it is already ycovered and we can move it to archaic.
Else: change wording as suggested.

Rosie wanted to give it a second thought - I do not know what is on her mind ;) Rosie?

Given that there has been no further input on this topic since the last RA meeting on 25 January, I would like to take the simple action of updating "Guild" to "LUC" (2 instances) and "City" to "CDS" (1 instance). This change should not affect any substantial aspect of the law, as it will only update the language to current terminology.

If at a later time someone would like to make further changes to this law or its classification, this topic can be re-opened for discussion.

The current text of the law is here, https://cdsdemocracy.org/faqs/nl-4-23-p ... ction-act/

The proposed text, replacing "Guild" with "LUC" and "City" with "CDS" will read:
To protect the consistency, quality, and historical value of
structures on shared public land owned by citizens, the LUC is
required to seek approval after a moratorium for all Modifications
(creation, deletion, replacement, or modification) to any Objects
(objects, scripts, textures, or terrain) sitting on public land which have been purchased by the CDS. The moratorium will be 10 days long During the moratorium, the proposed
Modifications to the Objects will be offered for review either in
writing (a description), in world (on display), or in forum
(photographs). At the end of the moratorium, the RA will vote on the
Modification to the Object. In the event of competing choices, The LUC will choose between the competing proposals, with that choice subject to RA ratification

Philosophy

The philosophy behind this law is that it seeks to protect the
consistency, quality, and historical value of the city’s public space
and places authority for its maintenance in the hands of those who pay
for it, the citizens. Because irrevocable changes can be made so
quickly, the moratorium and approval process provides citizens
protection against rapid and potentially undesirable change.
Additionally, the moratorium can be used to display several competing
Objects to better involve citizens in the maintenance of public land.

Sorry I didn't respond here. I agree to just move it to Archaic.

At yesterday's RA meeting we agreed to reclassify NL 4-23, as this law is archaic and its protections are covered by other active law.

NL 5-7 Civil Service act, https://cdsdemocracy.org/faqs/nl-5-7-civil-service-act/
D. Transparent Region Development Guidelines
Permanent changes to public land, outside of the seasonal tree and ground texture changes and official CDS temporary structures for events, have to be announced in the forums and allow a comment period of 2 weeks, to make sure the interests of neighboring parcel owners are taken into account. Public spaces have to be developed in accordance with policy and changes need to be subject to public comment and review.
