A county and one or more cities within the county are hereby authorized to create
a separate and distinct body corporate and politic to be known as the joint redevelopment
commission by the passage of a resolution by the board of county commissioners and
the governing body of one or more cities within the county creating such a commission
to function within the territorial limits of such participating units of government;
provided, however, that notice of the intent to consider passage of such a resolution
or ordinance shall be published at least 10 days prior to the meeting of the affected
governing boards for such purposes, and further provided that a joint redevelopment
commission created hereunder shall have authority to operate in an area where there
presently exists a redevelopment commission upon the approval of the municipality
or county concerned. The governing body of each participating local government shall appoint one or more
commissioners as such governing bodies shall determine; such persons may be appointed
at or after the time of adoption of the resolution creating the joint redevelopment
commission. The appointing authority shall have the authority to appoint successors or to remove
persons for misfeasance, malfeasance or nonfeasance who are appointed by them. Each commissioner shall serve for a term designated by the governing bodies of not
less than one nor more than five years. The appointed members as commissioners shall constitute the joint redevelopment
commission and certification of appointment shall be filed with the Secretary of State
as part of the application for charter.
All provisions of the “Urban Redevelopment Law” as defined in Article 22 of Chapter
160A of the General Statutes shall apply to the creation and operation of a joint
redevelopment commission and where reference is made to municipality, it shall be
interpreted to apply to the units of government creating a joint redevelopment commission.
