Planning Board's Working Draft Community Decay Ordinance


The Park County Planning Board is currently working with Planning Staff to develop a draft Park County Conflict Mitigation Zoning District in conjunction with Goal 16 of the Park County Growth Policy. The Planning Board is still early in the process, and have yet to vote to make a recommendation to the Park County Commission to pursue the process of creating a zoning district. The Park County Planning Board operates in an advisory capacity and any future decisions to begin the process to create a zoning district must come from the Park County Commission. The Planning Board encourages participation and input from the public throughout this process.
