New growth policy finalized in Montana’s fastest-growing county

The Gallatin County Planning Department released the final draft of a new growth policy for the county.

The policy is called Envision Gallatin: Tomorrow Together. It centers around three major themes — open space, heritage and opportunity.

The Gallatin County Commission will vote on the policy at the public meeting Sept. 21.

Developing the new policy started about two years ago. It will be a guiding principal for the rapidly growing county.
