COEUR d'ALENE - Following emphatic discussion on Tuesday evening, the Kootenai County Republican Central Committee approved a resolution decrying the county's drafting of new development ordinances and calling on the commissioners for change.
The resolution, which passed 42 to 2, states that the consultant helping write the Unified Land Use Code is proposing regulations that will “violate Idaho Code and affect property rights.”
To be passed on to the county commissioners, the document calls on the officials to follow state law and avoid unnecessary restrictions on property use. It also requests the commissioners give notice to every affected property owner, and provide regional public hearings for review of the code and a chance to propose alternatives. Full story.
