Iowa legislative update

Two more bills introduced:

SSB1175 would change the variance standard from unnecessary hardship to practical difficulties, and allow a city, by ordinance, to give decision-making authority for special exceptions to a body other than the zoning board of adjustment (presumably the planning and zoning commission)

HF195 limits the grounds for designating an area as an urban revitalization area, striking many of the stated reasons for such a declaration from Iowa Code 404.1(2).  Also amends approval requirements.
