The Rural Bridesville Land Use Plan is being developed and we would like your input.

You can find a copy of the Draft Plan in the Document Library along with Land Use and Zoning Maps.

Planning helps a community influence how development occurs. Part of the plan outlines a community vision and policies. Another part sets out permitted and prohibited lands uses and minimum lot sizes for subdivision. This helps influence what can happen where on a landscape.

Planning began in the area with the Bridesville Townsite Land Use Plan. The townsite plan set out land use designations and zoning for the lots in Bridesville. After the townsite plan came out in 2012, community members expressed interest in planning in the rural areas as well.

An engagement summary including all comments from this site, in-person community meetings and other communications with staff will be prepared and will be considered during any decision making process concerning this plan.

The planning process is paused until such time that we can hold an in-person meeting in Bridesville. We are hoping that this can occur in the New Year and will advertise the meeting when we figure out a date.

Please note: a few things have been moved around on the page. The Questions tool was brought to the main page to encourage dialogue, as there is an answer function as part of it. If you're looking for further information about the plan or process, poste a question here and it will be answered by RDKB staff. The Guestbook tool is still available to post comments as a separate tab next to the Questions and Places tools. Under the Guestbook, you can read comments posted by other participants and post comments. Places displays the area that's included in this process.

    Have comments regarding the "Draft Rural Bridesville Land Use Plan" been removed?

    Hill asked 9 months ago

    The comments posted in the Guestbook are still under that tab, which can be found here: https://jointheconversation.rdkb.com/rural-bridesville-land-use-plan?tool=guest_book#tool_tab . There were questions asked in those comments, that could not be answered using that tool, so we highlighted the Questions tool to allow for more dialogue. 

    All comments and questions asked on this site will be included in material in an engagement summary that will be used to craft the plan and help inform any decisions made concerning this planning process.

    where do I find the definitions of the land use as per the map? What is Ag resource, rural resource etc

    Dina asked over 1 year ago

    In the document library, you can find a copy of the Draft Plan. In the Draft Plan there are corresponding land use designations and zones for each of the ones shown on the maps. There are descriptions in the plan of what lands are included in each designation/zone, the objectives and policies for those areas and proposed permitted uses. This may help answer what is meant by ag resource, rural resource.  If you have other questions, post them here, or contact Liz Moore, Senior Planner, srplanner@rdkb.com, 250-368-0252.
