First major overhaul of city and county zoning regulations in 45 years
Project Re:Code is our first chance in nearly a half-century to adopt modern regulations that meet the communities' stated goals and aspirations. From downtown to the rims and from the Yellowstone River to the small farms and ranches surrounding Billings, life is moving and changing. The city and County have worked hard over the last few years to update the goals and objectives of its Growth Policy. Now it's time to give those new aspirations the right tools to achieve success.
The Yellowstone County Board of Planning recently created an ad hoc steering committee to oversee Project ReCode. With assistance from Planning staff, this steering committee will guide the overhaul of the existing zoning codes. The steering committee expects the process to take 2 years and will be meeting monthly to review drafts, listen to public comment and finalize sections of the new zoning codes. The final documents will be sent to the City Council and County Commissioners for approval.
