Local Growth Policy To Be Updated

Anaconda-Deer Lodge County is looking at updating the existing Growth Policy that was adopted in 2005. Many things have changed in the past five years and there are now different growth and development issues. In addition, the Montana Code Annotated now has different growth policy requirements.

The proposed update should put a new focus on remediation and redevelopment of Superfund sites, and on how redevelopment of remediated areas will contribute to the local economy and be supported by the community.

Growth policy should address important community issues such as jobs, housing conditions, streets and roads, subdivision of land, and emergency services.

The areas covered include:

  • Natural Resources
  • Economic Development
  • Land Use
  • Housing
  • Community Facilities
  • Implementation and Intergovernmental Coordination
