Growth Policy Update
ABOUT THE Growth Policy
A Growth Policy is a community’s growth and development plan that evaluates existing community conditions and sets goals and future visions for housing, land use, economic development, local services, public safety, natural resources, transportation, and other unique characteristics and features of the community. A Growth Policy is not a regulation or ordinance, but it serves as the legal basis for enacting them.
Fergus County Commissioners have authorized the County Planning Board to develop a Growth Policy that will provide guidance to the County and surrounding incorporated towns. This policy will not apply to the City of Lewistown or the 4 ½ mile jurisdictional area surrounding the City.
