Over the last several months, the Board of County Commissioners and Planning Commission members have carefully listened and heard community concerns regarding moving forward with the current draft of the Kootenai County Unified Land Use Code (ULUC). In order to proceed with the best possible draft code proposal, the Board and Planning Commission have jointly decided to postpone setting new dates for the continuation of the Planning Commission hearing and deliberation process. With the assistance of Bret Keast of Kendig Keast Collaborative, the Planning Commission will be reviewing and revising the April 11, 2013 Public Hearing Draft ULUC. Once complete, another public hearing notice will be published along with a second 60-day comment period. As previously decided by the Planning Commission, the current comment period during this interim review period will remain open/ULUC Project news release.
Question: Is this decision to postpone new hearing dates and revise ULUC an admission by the planners that they've heard the outcry of the Kootenai County rural residents?
