A project focused on updates to the state’s growth policy framework was submitted to the state legislature. The project included significant effort by the associated task force to develop and make recommendations that focus on making the laws and code governing growth and development work better and provide local governments tools to help them address housing needs. It is our hope the project, funded by the 2021 Legislature leads to legislative action this session and beyond.
 
The project makes a total of 12 different recommendations ranging from annexation incentives, modifying permit process requirements, creating middle housing definitions and more. You can watch Clay White of LDC, Inc. make a presentation on the project January 10 before State Senate Committee on Local Government, Land Use and Tribal Affairs here.
