County Rolls Out Temporary Code

Huckleberries Online has received the following news release from the Kootenai County Board of County Commissioners:

Kootenai County is seeking public input to revise its existing land use codes. The draft document is now available for review, and is meant to serve as a temporary code until an update to the Comprehensive Plan and a subsequent new code can be conducted, all for the purpose of ensuring the protection of private property rights. The intent is to give the public ample time to fully understand what is proposed and suggest additional changes before the public hearing process takes place. The draft is based on the current regulations and consolidates them for easier reading and comprehension. Additionally, the revisions aim to streamline procedures. For the most part, this draft does not change policy aspects of the existing regulations/Sandi Gilbertson, administrative assistant, Kootenai County Board of Commissioners. Full news release here.

Question: Do you trust this Board of County Commissioners to supervise the revision of the county's comprehensive plan?
