NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN of public meetings that will be held by the Broadwater County Planning Board on May 21, 2019, at 2:30 p.m., in the Broadwater County Courthouse, to present the following items, hear public comment, and consider and forward written advisory recommendations to the Broadwater County Commission.

  1. Review of the establishment of boundaries for the Wheatland Zoning District and adoption of the Wheatland Zoning Regulation pursuant to §76-2-201 et seq., MCA.

The Wheatland Zoning District encompasses about 1,000 acres and is located along US Highway 287, just north of the Interstate 90 – Highway 287 intersection.  The boundaries include portions of Sections 3, 10, 15 and 16, Township 2 North, Range 1 East, P.M.M., Broadwater County, Montana.  Most of the acreage is located on the east side of US Highway 287 and extends from I-90 north to Old Town Road.  A strip comprised of less than 100 acres is located along the west side of US Highway 287 and extends from I-90 north to Wheatland Road.

The general character of the Wheatland Zoning Regulation is for an industrial/commercial site in accordance with the Broadwater County growth policy; with the intent and purpose of establishing an industrial area for secondary, value adding businesses which are manufacturing, processing, producing, or creating by changing the form of raw materials or intermediate products into more valuable products or commodities that are capable of being sold or traded in interstate commerce; and technology-based businesses that, through the employment of knowledge or labor, add value to a product, process, or export service resulting in the creation of new wealth; and to set forth minimum standards for development.

The proposed Wheatland Zoning Regulation and map are on file for inspection in the office of the Broadwater County Clerk and Recorder.

  1. Review of the Broadwater County Wheatland Targeted Economic Development District (TEDD) Comprehensive Development Plan (Plan) conformance and zoning accordance with the Broadwater County Growth Policy Plan pursuant to §7-15-4201 et seq., MCA.

Broadwater County is proposing a TEDD for the industrial and commercial area of the Wheatland Census Designated Place, encompassing about 1,000 acres.  Prior to the Broadwater County Commission authorizing the TEDD, the Broadwater County Planning Board will conduct a public meeting for the purpose of making a written advisory recommendation to the Broadwater County Commission as to whether the Plan is in conformance with and whether the zoning proposed for the area is in accordance with the Broadwater County Growth Policy Plan.
