There will be a public hearing regarding the proposed Bonner County Natural Resource Plan on Wednesday, Jan. 17, at 5:30 p.m. at the Bonner County Administration Building.
The plan, which can be read online at www.bonnercounty.us/bonner-county-natural-resources-committee, is 96 pages long and hits on topics like land use, wildlife, forest management and much more.
The proposed plan is supposed to “create an interface with federal government agencies to work with county officials in making certain as much as they possibly can that the federal government can coordinate and correlate plans with the county,” said Natural Resource Committee Chairman Cornel Rasor in a workshop on Oct. 25.
Wednesday’s meeting is when county commissioners are meant to adopt the document. Read more about various community perspectives on the Natural Resource Plan at www.sandpointreader.com/unpacking-bonner-countys-natural-resource-plan.
