Don’t keep Growth Policy process in the shadows


The deadline for commenting on the Park County Growth Policy is approaching. Unfortunately, if you read the county website, you cannot determine when the comment period will end or when the vote will take place.

The purpose of this portion of the process is to provide comments to the County Commission. The website directs comments to the Planning Department. The Planning Board already has reviewed the document and provided comments. All comments should be submitted to the commission if they are following the proper procedure.

The website encourages citizens to become involved and states that copies are available in various locations throughout the county. However, there is only one copy at the location I checked. At that site, a cheap clip is holding the 80 pages together.

The commission needs to do a better job of informing the public and not keep the Growth Policy process in the shadows.
