NL 4-20 Construction Authority Act (supercedes NL 3-10)

Post by Rosie Gray »

This law is outdated in that CDSL 21-01 Permanent Land-Use Commission Act has taken over the function of what this law had set out to do. Our community and our laws have evolved over time and The Guild referenced here has not been in existence for many years, and the current CDS Artisan Guild is an NGO without any powers.

I think this law should be moved to Archaic Laws.
NL 4-20 Construction Authority Act (supercedes NL 3-10)

Overview

The Guild shall be free to make modification to public city structures provided those modifications don’t significantly alter the theme and layout of the city or adversely affect the performance of the sim.
Details

A. What may be altered

The Guild is authorized to make alterations, including replacement of all public city structures, so long as those modifications don’t significantly alter the theme and layout of the city or adversely affect the performance of the sim.

The Guild must, however, seek specific authorization from the RA prior to altering any structure previously paid for with city funds.

Public city structures include, but is not limited to:

The Marktplatz
All roads and objects on those roads
The City wall
The Rathaus

Any alteration project that requires a budget from the RA is encouraged to be started only after the budget is approved. While the Guild may commence with projects before RA approval for a budget, it should be cognizant that a budget for the project may not be approved.

B. What may not be altered

No structure on privately-owned land that abides by its covenant may be altered by the guild. No modifications may significantly alter the theme and layout of the city or adversely affect the performance of the sim.

C. Definition of “layout”

In this document, “layout” is taken to mean the arrangement of city streets, bridges, walls, buildings, and other structures. It also includes the rough size and shape of these structures.

D. Relation to NL 3-10 (Construction Authority Act)

This bill supercedes NL 3-10. NL 3-10 will be considered void upon enactment of this bill.
Notes

A. Why this bill is needed

There has been recent confusion on the interpretation of NL 3-10 (Construction Authority Act). Thus, there is a need for a clear document on what may and may not be altered by the Guild. There is also need for a fresh authorization to the Guild, so it can move forward on city alterations with a clear mandate.

B. What this bill is not

This bill does not give any opinion on whether recent Guild actions are legal under NL 3-10 or not.

passed as amended 3 May 2006

NL 4-20 appears to be a clear case where this Archaic code has long been replaced by CDSL 21-01 Permanent Land-Use Commission Act, https://cdsdemocracy.org/faqs/cdsl-21-0 ... ssion-act/
