Public hearing to be held Jan. 9
Explorebigsky.com staff writer
Property owners in Gallatin County may be affected by proposed changes to the Gallatin Canyon/Big Sky Zoning District regulations.
A public hearing to review and comment on the changes is set for Monday, Jan. 9 at 9:30 a.m. in the Big Sky Water and Sewer District conference room, in the Meadow Village.
In March 2010, the Gallatin County Planning and
Zoning Commission adopted a resolution to amend
certain sections of the zoning regulations, originally
adopted in 1996.
Amendments proposed would include:
• Accessory structures, apartments and dwellings
• Hill and ridgeline development
• Lighting, entry corridor standards, enforcement and definitions
• Bed and breakfast inns
• Short-term rentals
• Commercial uses
The committee is now looking at development rights in residential zoning districts. Existing regulations allow construction of both residential and non-residential accessory structures, such as apartments, guest homes, caretaker residences, shops and barns. To better match development with a property’s size and surrounding neighborhood, the committee is proposing a new, more organized approach.

Main St., #108, Bozeman, Mont., 59715.
