DRAFT Helena Valley Zoning Regulations: (PDF) COMING SOON!
Citizens were very involved in the 2015 Helena Valley Area Growth Policy, which focused on addressing Five Key Issues:Water, Wastewater, Roads, Fire Protection and Flooding. The Growth Policy created the vision for a new approach to growth management in the Valley; and the proposed zoning is the tool needed to address the growth constraints and respond to them appropriately.
While there are currently 35 Citizen-Initiated Part 1 zoning districts in Lewis and Clark County, Part 2 County-Initiated zoning would affect the majority of the Helena Valley. Proposed are five different types of zone districts intended to support an agriculture/rural/large lot lifestyle, along with both urban and suburban districts for additional lifestyle options.
County Planners will present recommendations to the Planning Board, with follow-up meetings to the Board of County Commissioners for approval and implementation in 2020.
