6 p.m. October 12, 2023
Kootenai County Commissioners are holding a public hearing 6 p.m. October 12, 2023, at the Kootenai County Administration Building. The intent of this area area-wide zone change also known as “rezone” is to rezone tribally owned, privately owned, or leased properties within the Coeur d’Alene Reservation boundaries to agriculture where the existing land use is compatible with the Agricultural Zoning District. The purpose of this rezone is to preserve agricultural land, timber lands, open spaces, natural resources, and the existing rural character of the southwest portion of Kootenai County. This rezone is supported by both Kootenai County and Coeur d’Alene Tribal policies. Under this proposal, parcels that qualify for a rezone must meet the following thresholds:
· Currently zoned as “Rural Zone”
· 20-acres in size or larger
· Within the boundaries of the Coeur d’Alene Reservation
