County Zoning Regulations to See Significant Changes
First of many workshops regarding zoning regulation changes takes place today
The Flathead County Planning Board intends to take a long look at the county’s current zoning regulations as one of the board’s main projects for fiscal year 2014.

The first of many workshops regarding zoning regulation changes will take place on June 12 at the Earl Bennett Building in Kalispell, at 6 p.m.

Flathead County’s zoning regulations tend to get tweaked from time to time, either to reflect new laws or small updates to various sections. According to county planner Erik Mack, the upcoming changes will involve more than the usual small adjustments, but less than a complete overhaul of the entire document.

The June 12 meeting will involve setting up a timeline for the project, as well as outlining the goals and objectives for the changes.

Mack said the planning department also hopes to perform outreach to get opinions on zoning regulation changes from local businesses, organizations, neighborhoods and municipalities, which should also be discussed at the June 12 meeting.

The planning board received direction from the Flathead County Commission to take this look at the zoning regulations, Mack said, stemming from a motion from Commissioner Gary Krueger.

There have been several attempts to perform a similar examination of the regulations in the past, but they did not succeed. Project of this scale and significance in regard to the zoning regulations has not taken place in several years, Mack said.

Those with comments and suggestions on the Flathead County Zoning Regulations are encouraged to attend the June 12 meeting, or email Erik Mack at emack@flathead.mt.gov.

I finished 100 Years of Solitude in my empty high school art room, and the top of my head came off, just like Emily Dickinson said.
