2009 Comprehensive Plan

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

A 20 year vision by and for the community, a comprehensive plan guides major decisions such as where and how the city may grow.  Earlier in 2019, the Sandpoint Planning Commission and Sandpoint City Council initiated an update to the 2009 Comprehensive Plan. Please visit for more information and how to be involved.

A Comprehensive Plan is the legal basis for major decisions such as zoning regulations*, answering questions such as:

Where should different housing types be allowed?

Where should a grocery store go? How about a car dealership?

What is most valued about Sandpoint?

What are the major concerns for the future of Sandpoint?

*Zoning Regulations determine for an area what uses are allowed and by what standards such as height limits, setbacks and design standards.
