Helena – On August 4, the Consolidated City and County Planning Board recommended approval of the 2020 Draft Part-2 County-Initiated Zoning map and regulations for the Helena Valley Planning Area.

It is important to recognize the foundation of Freedom is the Ownership of Private Property. Many of the citizens in the valley that we talked to have stated great concern over the proposed zoning. Lost ability to enjoy and use their property will make living in the area difficult and, according to some, unbearable.

The proposed zoning project will be heard by the Lewis and Clark Board of County Commissioners through 4 public meetings at the Great Northern Hotel Conference Center. Sept. 22, 2020 9 a.m. until 4 p.m…September 23, 2020 5:30p.m-9:00p.m…September 28, 2020 1:00p.m-4:30p.m…and October 6, 2020 9:00a.m.-3:00p.m. The public may also participate via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/5669454978 

Citizens interested in the details will need to take time to attend at least one of the meetings so they have a voice on the matter. According to Daryl Rutherford who has been engaged in the process from the beginning, the future of Helena is on the table. 

Written comments must be received by the County Community Development and Planning Department by Noon on September 30th.   The Lewis & Clark County government officials will make decisions on the zoning matter at the October 6th 2020 regular meeting.
