V. PUBLIC HEARING
A. Case No. ORA15-0001, a request to establish a new land use classification in accordance with Title 9 Zoning Regulations, Section 9-21-7 of the County Code. Specifically, the request would provide for a Resort Lodge, Conference Center, or Guest Ranch, and would be defined as follows. A facility, including a lodge and/or resort cabins, and other supporting ancillary buildings, with or without food service, that serves as a destination point for patrons and that relies on its rural location and the natural environment to provide recreational opportunities and activities such as horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and boating. If customarily incidental to the use, these facilities may also be used for meeting, recreation, education, and wedding and reception facilities. The use is proposed to be allowed by-right in the Commercial zoning district, and by Conditional Use Permit in the Agricultural, Agricultural Suburban, Rural, and Restricted Residential zoning districts. The Planning Commission held a public hearing on October 15, 2015 and deliberated on October 22, 2015, and voted to forward the request to the Board of County Commissioners with no recommendation. (David Callahan-Director)
VI. PUBLIC COMMENT
A widely circulated E-mail opposing this proposed land use ordinance is out there spitting virulent opposition without actually telling us what it says. I have printed out the word for word proposal for the use of anyone that wishes to know a neutral stance. A hearing is going to be held at the Kootenai County Administration Building 6:00 pm tonight.
Here is the e-mail in opposition:
