Please make your voice heard.
The Stillwater County Commissioners will be holding a public hearing to consider their proposed policy for citizen initiated zoning. The proposed policy is not a policy at all, but a thinly-veiled attempt to keep any landowner group from ever taking advantage of state law.
We need your help to keep Commissioners from taking away landowner rights and neutering state law regarding citizen initiated zoning.
Here’s what you can do:
- Attend the hearing on Tuesday, March 6 at 9:30am at the Stillwater County Courthouse, 400 E. 3rd Ave. N in Columbus. Speak up and make your voice heard. Let the Commissioners see that the public is opposed to this policy. (View map for directions)
- Write to let the Commissioners know how you feel. Possible talking points are here, but your letter doesn’t have to be elegant. Just say that the proposed policy on citizen initiated zoning is not a policy but an attempt to take away landowners’ rights, and that you disagree with the proposal.
Per the public notice, written comments must be sent to:
Stillwater County Commissioners
P.O. Box 970
Columbus, MT 59019.
You can also email the Commissioners at firstname.lastname@example.org, but it is important to send via US mail to make sure your voice is counted.
