Bonner County Natural Resource Committee (BCNRC) presented its draft plan for the Natural Resource component of the Comprehensive Plan to the Planning & Zoning Commission. The P&Z reviewed the plan on June 15th, and it was decided “that this matter should not have been brought before the Planning & Zoning Commission.” Rather, the BCNRC “were tasked to create [ing] a document to be used as a tool for the Board of County Commissioners [BOCC] to facilitate their processes.”
The BCNRC completed a Final Draft of their Natural Resource Plan in mid December 2017. The BOCC held a hearing to consider adoption of this plan on January 17, 2018. The BOCC voted to approve the plan pending edits and legal review. It is expected to be formally adopted at the regular BOCC business meeting on February 20, 2018.
