Many of you know that long term Community Plans, known as Growth Policies in Montana, are required for cities and counties. These plans document communities’ current status and recommendations to the governing bodies for future development.
Dillon's Planning Board is currently working with Sanderson Stewart to update the City's plan to reflect changes since the last revision in 2009.
Public involvement is an important part of the update process and the first opportunity is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, June 2 from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. at the Depot, south of the Museum.
Attendees can expect an informal "drop-in" event with various opportunities to learn about the planning process and provide input to the team. Spend as little or as much time as desired. There will also be food and door prizes.
Looking ahead, the second public meeting is set tentatively for July 28th, also 4-7 p.m. at the Depot. Maps and other information will be available and input regarding goals will be solicited.
The public is also welcome at the regular Planning Board meetings which will be focused on the Plan for the next few weeks. As of now, meetings are scheduled for every-other Tuesday: 5/26, 6/9, 6/23, 7/7, and 7/21. All meetings are at 7:00 at the City Council Chambers on Idaho Street.
Finally, information, survey forms, etc. are available at the City of Dillon offices. The 2009 growth policy is available on the web here:
