No zoning in Lower Yaak

| June 28, 2024 7:00 AM

My husband and I live on Pine Creek in the Lower Yaak area. We are
opposed to zoning proposals as infringements on the independent spirit
on Montanans and personal property rights.

There are many land development controls already in place which direct
safe and responsible preservation of Montana's outdoor areas. 

Zoning is entirely inappropriate in the rural outdoors and lacks the structure or
funding to guarantee protection of Montana's beautiful areas. Surely the deplorable condition of areas within zoned municipal areas should show how effective zoning really is in preserving a healthy environment.
