Highway 93 corridor plan workshop set for Jan. 8

Print Article

Whitefish is holding a public workshop as part of work to craft a corridor plan for Highway 93 South.

The Highway 93 South Corridor Plan Steering Committee and the city of Whitefish are holding the workshop on Tuesday, Jan. 8 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Hampton Inn & Suites, 6340 Highway 93 South, in Whitefish. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

“The purpose of the workshop is to get a wide variety of opinions and viewpoints about what is special about the highway corridor and needs to be preserved, and what needs to change and improve in the years ahead,” said Steering Committee Chairman John Middleton. “Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The more citizens participate, the better the plan will be.”

The workshop is part of an ongoing public process that included an open house in September 2018 and will include a third public meeting later in spring 2019.

The workshop on Jan. 8 will start promptly at 5:30 p.m. with a presentation and group exercises. An online survey will also be introduced as part of the workshop and will be available for the public to take in January and February on the city’s Long-Range Planning webpage at cityofwhitefish.org.

The corridor plan will focus on Highway 93 South from Sixth Street to Blanchard Lake Road south of Montana 40. The corridor is primarily zoned for highway commercial use with some adjacent residential land uses.

“We are very excited to have the public participate in this visioning workshop for Highway 93 South,” said Dave Taylor, Planning and Building Director. “The plan will focus on future land uses, economic performance, transportation, design and aesthetics. Come talk to your neighbors and help us shape the future of this important gateway into Whitefish that we all either live near, shop in or drive through.”

Comments concerning the project may be mailed to: Hilary Lindh, City of Whitefish, Planning & Building, P.O. Box 158, Whitefish, MT 59937. Comments may also be submitted by email to hlindh@cityofwhitefish.org. Participants attending the public workshop meeting are welcome to submit comments at that time.
