LEGAL NOTICE The Lake County Planning Department is holding a community meeting on Monday, August 14 at the Rollins School House, Thursday, August 17 at the Montecahto Club, and Monday August 21 at the Swan Lake Community Center, all from 6 PM to 9 PM, and on Thursday, August 24 in the Lake County Board of Commissioners Chambers from 1:30 PM to 4 PM on the following item: LAKESHORE PROTECTION REGULATIONS AMENDMENT The Planning staff is hosting a community work session to discuss the proposed lakeshore regulation amendment, collect public comment, and answer questions. On November 10, 2022, Lake County Board of Commissioners passed a resolution of intention to adopt an amendment to the Lake County Lakeshore Protection Regulations. During that meeting, the public in attendance commented on the desire to have more public involvement, more time to review the regulations, as well as raised several questions and concerns about the proposed document. The Lake County Board of Commissioners also noted changes they felt were necessary to the document. The 2023 legislative session had proposed changes to the lakeshore laws, therefore the update to the document was briefly tabled to see what state law changes may need to be adopted in the regulation amendment. The draft bill was not signed into law, and therefore the proposed amendment continues as it was from the changes made after the Resolution of Intention to Adopt meeting. Four (4) community meetings will be held in total prior to a final resolution of adoption meeting. All comments made during the community meetings will be taken and forwarded to the Commissioners for consideration at the adoption meeting. Please contact the Planning Department at planning@lakemt.gov or (406) 883-7235 for more information about this meeting, or the other meetings available around Lake County. Please contact the Lake County Commissioner’s Office at kstinger@lakemt.gov or at (406) 883-7204 if you would like to attend the August 24 meeting virtually. Published on August 10th, 2023.
