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.
