Planning and Zoning Commission

Bonner County Revised Code Section 12-122 provides for the creation of the Bonner County Planning and Zoning Commission as well as procedures for filling vacancies and terms of officers thereon; Idaho Code 67-6504 provides the authority for filling vacancies.


The Planning Department staff provides assistance to a seven-member, volunteer appointed Planning and Zoning Commission (referred to as the Commission), and a three-member elected Board of County Commissioners (referred to as the Board). The Commission is comprised of county residents appointed by the Board and represents the three Board voting districts. Commission members serve a minimum three-year appointment, and include residents from Priest Lake, Kootenai area, West Sandpoint, Sandpoint, Dover area, Hope, and Sagle.

The Commission generally meets the first Thursday evening of each month to conduct public hearings on land-use projects and the third Thursday evening of each month to conduct public workshops on ordinance amendments or comprehensive planning efforts. The Board generally convenes each Wednesday afternoon to conduct public hearings on land-use projects. Notices of public hearings are published in the Bonner County Daily Bee at least 20 days prior to each public hearing.
