There are 16 zoning districts in Lake County. Thirteen of those districts are administered by the Lake County Planning Department.

The City/County Zoning District is jointly administered by the City of Polson (within the city limits) and the Lake County Planning Department (outside of the city limits). Currently, each jurisdiction uses a version of the Polson Development Code tailored to that jurisdiction.

Zoning regulations are updated from time to time.

If you would like to participate in one of the zoning regulation reviews, please contact the Lake County Planning Department.

New zoning districts may also be created from time to time. Lake County Planning Department staff may help facilitate the formation of a new zoning district if a majority of landowners in an area would like to develop a zoning district and demonstrate commitment to the process.
