The SCAOR Card – Issue #011 – Government Affairs

Agendas for the upcoming Planning and Zoning Commission Workshops have yet to be posted, however, below is the list of the upcoming workshops.

These are open to the public and we greatly encourage all to come and participate.  It is our understanding that Planning and Zoning are preparing to have their final draft  Now is the time for the Reatlor® voice to be strong. 

UPCOMING SCHEDULE:

  • Planning and Zoning Commission Workshop
    September 13 @ 9:00 am –  view agenda
  • Planning and Zoning Commission Workshop
    September 20 @ 9:00 am –  view agenda
  • Planning and Zoning Commission Workshop
    September 27 @ 9:00 am – view agenda

All workshops are held in the Sussex County Council Chambers and are broadcast live.  To follow the development of the Comprehensive Plan you can click on the link below.  A link to the live broadcast site is provided below the Comp. Plan link. You can listen to any, and all, previous workshops as they are archived on the site listed below.

SCAOR Public Policy Committee (PPC) had submitted their approved talking points  to SCAOR Executive Board, on July 13th, 2017, and received their final approval. Talking points should be presented in the upcoming Public Workshops. Stay tuned to see the position of SCAOR and the developing Sussex County Comprehensive Plan.

During this time Sussex County Council heard and approved a proposal to amend the sign ordinance related to on-premise signs and setbacks from an existing billboard (ORDINANCE NO. 2509). This is a friendly amendment to allow business/property owners to place signs on their property that were previously not permitted under the ordinance that was approved in October 2016.  To view that change please click the link below.

Two changes to the PPC have occurred since the last SCAORcard. It was determined that member services would be enhanced to have a committee solely dedicated to RPAC education and fundraising and to improve the existing Park Avenue Expansion Task Force into a Park Avenue Expansion PAG. New members were added to this PAG to further follow the developments of this project. 

Your SCAOR PPC continues to work with our DAR GAD, Maria Evans, as we continue to support DAR in ensuring the 1st Time Home Buyer exemption is reviewed as it relates to the new RTT increases.

View this email in your browser


Welcome to BRIGHT MLS Thursday!

Now that the SentriLock box exchange is complete, we turn our sights to the upcoming Bright MLS transition.

Each Thursday, we’ll bring you the very latest information and what to expect during the transition.  Today, we go over some common questions and what we know so far.  As always, feel free to catch up on the Bright MLS section of our website.


To ensure a smooth transition, please update your MLS profile information with a current photo and ensure all information is correct. If something needs to be changed please email info@scaor.com.



1) How much Will Bright MLS Cost?
$35 per month for REALTOR’s and $53 per month for non-REALTORS®. Billing will be quarterly beginning in January. New members after January will be billed quarterly based on their join date.

2) How much will my clerical/personal assistant cost?
$30 per month per clerical. Each office will be allowed 1 free clerical per 30 agents up to 3 free.

3) Is there any setup cost?
For members that have joined before December 7th 2017, there will be no Application/Setup fee. After December 7th, there will be an application charge of $250 per member paid to Bright MLS.

4) When can we see it?
A preview period will begin November 7th and will run parallel with our current system. Our current MLS will go into read-only mode on December 7th. This means as of December 7th you will no longer be able to edit, add or close a listing in the current MLS system. On Monday, December 11, we will go live with Bright MLS and it will be populated with all of our current data as of December 7th.
