Not Like Ohio Anymore

Waiting for hours to have your say when nobody plans to listen to you anyway..

The Flathead County Planning Board recently changed its rules to reduce the adversarial nature of some discussions. Public comments are no longer divided into separate camps of proponents and opponents; instead, it's just a general public-comment period for anyone who has something to say on a given issue.

The aim was for "kinder, gentler planning board meetings," in the words of board member Jeff Larson.

It's about time!
