Flathead County Zoning Text Amnedment-Home Occupation:  A request by the Flathead County Planning Board for an amendment to the text of the Flathead County Zoning Regulations (regulations) to revise the performance standards regarding home occupations based on the Planning Board’s discussion at a Planning Board workshop on February 24, 2014.  This amendment was originally recommended for approval to the Flathead County Commissioners by the Planning Board on September 10, 2014. On September 18, 2014 the Flathead County Commissioners voted to return this text amendment to the Planning Board for additional consideration.  On November 12, 2014 the Planning Board advised staff to make additional changes to the proposed amendment and schedule a new public hearing to allow for public comment on the text amendment in its entirety.

The general character of the specific proposed amendment is:

Changes to restrictions on vehicle traffic for a home occupation currently found in Section 5.06.020(1)(E), allowing for additional vehicle traffic when the home occupation is reviewed as a conditional use permit by adding Section 5.06.020(2)(C) adding a definition for trip as Section 7.19.045 and amending the definition of home occupation found in Section 7.09.020.
