New standards and regulations are to be considered for addition to the Yellowstone County Subdivision Regulations over the next few weeks. For the past year a special committee appointed by the Yellowstone County Planning Board has been studying and researching how to improve subdivision regulations to improve the safety of development in zoned areas of the county, and to make future growth and development easier and more orderly. The committee was headed by Darell Tunnicliff, a member of the Planning Board. County Commissioner John Ostlund and City Councilman Dick Clark served on the committee, as well as a numbers of people representing developers, engineers, real estate sales, public works, planners, and legal advisors. "We had a good vetting," said County Planning Director Wyeth Friday, in explaining the steps now necessary to adopt the new regulations. The Planning Board reviewed the draft regulations at their meeting on Tuesday and will make a recommendation to County Commissioners at their next meeting on Feb. 14, said Friday. County Commissioners will consider a Resolution of Intent to adopt the regulations on February 28, for a public hearing on March 21.
