KEA Blog: Comp Plan Misinformation

Dealing with comp plan misinformationOne of the more frustrating things about the comp plan battle has been fending off the misinformation by the realtors, builders, and business interests. Parroting talking points we’ve been hearing all along, a commenter to our recent posting about the Commissioners’ misguided decision to remove density designations from the current draft plan writes: "This is actually a wonderful and BRAVE decision for these two to make. Terry…you and I don’t always agree but the state law is VERY specific and NO other county has density restrictions in their comp plan in Idaho. It is illegal by statute." Which is (except for the "don’t always agree" part) unfortunately false. Quite a few Idaho counties have ranges of land use densities specified in their comp plans/Terry Harris, KEA Blog. More here.

Question: Are you satisfied with the way Kootenai County commissioners have handled the comprehensive plan in the last two to four years?
