Land Use Issues

We are very busy at the fair this week but I wanted to be sure and let you know about two important updates on land use in our area.

The city’s version is thru community Planning and they have set up an Urban Livestock Advisory Group to work on this issue. To learn more, go to the Urban Livestock web page or to

And in an email from the county:

The county is reviewing policies for rural land uses outside of city limits and urban growth areas. You can have a say in what views are considered by stopping by the “Rural Lands” table at the “River Ramble” activity center at the Clark County Fair, which runs through Aug. 16. County staff will be there to answer questions about the project and to accept comments from the public. Comments may also be submitted online at, where there is a public opinion survey and more project information. Their booth is in the Community Groups building next to the “E” barn, across from the Dairy Women’s milkshake booth.

If you do come out to the fair, be sure to stop by the "Fence Riders" barn and say hi. Poco and I will be there thru Sunday.
