Planning in the Bitterroot? Au Contraire

Hamilton is hosting the Montana Association of Planners this week. The group’s mission is to guide and shape the communities they live in – focusing on land use, preservation, transportation, parks and economic development. I can’t figure out why Ravalli County is part of this group. We have no land use policy, no zoning, no impact fees, no growth policy, no fast internet service, and our economy isn’t in great shape either.

The Association was looking for nominees in the following categories: Professional Achievement, Communications Initiative, Distinguished Leadership by a Professional Planner, Distinguished Leadership by an Elected Official. Well, there’s another issue we don’t have to think about.
