This has been contentious and will be interesting to see if the county actually shelves the idea.
Park County discusses shelving Conflict Mitigation Zoning District

At the tail end of Tuesday morning’s Park County Commission meeting, the three commissioners batted around the idea that it might be best to press pause on the Conflict Mitigation Zoning District that’s been developing over the past year.
The topic came up after Chairman Steve Caldwell opened the floor for the commissioners to discuss their weekly correspondence and public comments they’ve received.
Commissioner Clint Tinsley said he had several meetings over the past three weeks about the draft Conflict Mitigation Zoning District. Tinsley said that the draft is too vague, noting that questions about the zoning district were posed to him that he was unable to answer.
“I would recommend the Commission ask the Planning Board to hold off on this until we can meet face to face and work this out down the road. I think it’s a really, really bad time to talk about zoning in Park County at this moment,” Tinsley said.
Commissioner Bill Berg agreed that it’s “appropriate to take a time out and take stock,” but said that he’s glad the community is having the difficult conversations around zoning.“I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad idea to put this on the shelf for a while,” Caldwell said.
“I wonder if the Planning Board might give some thought to that and discuss the relative merits of taking a break for a while and letting things settle.”
