PLANNING BOARD DISAPPROVES OF 40-FOOT WATERWAY CONSTRUCTION SETBACK, APPROVES PUD

The Lee’s Pool Subdivision Public Hearing was originally scheduled Jan 29. The applicant, Moonlight Basin, requested to postpone this hearing to address topics in the staff report including a Geotech analysis, and resubmitted part eight of the preliminary plat which discussed a request for a stream construction setback reduction.

What it takes to serve on a board

Unincorporated Big Sky is unique in a plethora of ways. Many longterm residents say the only reason this beautiful experiment on the mountain has made it is largely due to volunteers. There are people in the community who have continually juggled family demands, work, hobbies and participation with local non profits.

Attorneys and taxes

The decision was made at the December 21 Big Sky Resort Area District Board of Directors meeting to move forward in drafting legislation with Taylor Luther Group, PLLC that – if approved at the legislative session – would raise the threshold of resort tax at the state level from three to four percent.
