Zoning

Citizen Initiated Zoning Districts
The creation of a citizen-initiated zoning district (CIZD) gives local landowners the opportunity to guide future development in their area. They allow neighbors to work together to make a land use plan that can enhance their neighborhood. In order to create a CIZD, at least 60% of the freeholders within the proposed district must sign a petition, which is presented to the County. The district size must be at least 40 acres.

If adopted, the zoning district is enforceable by the County. Planning Department staff is available to work with landowners who are interested in establishing CIZDs. Citizen-Initiated Zoning Districts are authorized under Section 76-2-101, Montana Code Annotated.

View the CIZD map, showing all CIZD's within Ravalli County. For more information and a guide to the procedure, please read the General Procedure for the Adoption of a Citizen-Initiated Zoning District.

Recorded CIZD Information
Text of recorded documents pertaining to existing Citizen-Initiated Zoning Districts is available. Please note that there may be multiple resolutions included in the permanent files (one creating district boundaries, one to create the Planning and Zoning Commission, and one passed by the County Commissioners.) The final standards for a district may not be found at the beginning of a document.
