Dickinson Co. Supervisors Approve Several Clarifications To County Zoning Ordinance

Wed 8-14-2019

(Spirit Lake)-- Dickinson County supervisors Tuesday approved several revisions to the county's zoning ordinance as recommended by the county's Planning and Zoning Commission.

The changes clarify definitions to home occupations, front yards, platted streets, and zoning and plat filing fees. All fees for requests in zoning changes for all districts will now be $100, while charges for plat filings will go from $200 currently to $350.

County officials say the clarifications in the definitions are the result of some court rulings that stated the previous language was too vague. Officials say the changes are also intended to make fee schedules more consistent.
