COEUR d’ALENE — The Kootenai County Planning Commission today released a revision of the proposed Comprehensive Plan Update and announced a public hearing scheduled for Sept. 26.
The Kootenai County Planning Commission published the proposed Comprehensive Plan Update on April 1 on KeepingKootenai.com. Community feedback meetings were held at five locations throughout the county. The public also provided online feedback and sent written comments directly to Community Development.
The planning commission organized comments received by June 26 under the various sections of the proposed update, discussed them at workshops held in July and August and made adjustments to the proposed goals, objectives and policies. More than 40 changes were made based on public feedback.
Comments received after June 26 will be considered during the public hearing process.
The planning commission has published two documents as a result of this review. Links to the documents are available on KeepingKootenai.com. Copies can be obtained by contacting Community Development.
The first document is the revised comprehensive plan update’s proposed goals, objectives and policies. The second document provides a summary citing statements that were modified after a review of public comments and others remained unchanged.
The planning commission continues to review all comments received and encourages the public to review the update and submit additional comments. The planning commission will continue to review all comments received and those offered at the Sept. 26 Public Hearing before finalizing the proposal.
