Anaconda-Deer Lodge County is currently updating the Development Permit System. The Draft Final DPS is available for review in the Planning Documents page. Last updated in 1992, the focus of this update includes:

  • revising for better clarity and completeness;
  • simplifying review procedures;
  • examining general standards for relevance;
  • exploring development standards for outlying planning districts;
  • proposing county-wide environmental standards;
  • incorporating institutional controls into development standards for Smelter Overlay District;
  • designing neighborhood conservation/preservation standards; and
  • integrating Planned Industrial Districts.
Ordinance No. 208, the Big Hole River Conservation Development Standards and Permitting Process, ensures the preservation of orderly development along the Big Hole River through the establishment of standards and a permitting process for new construction and the transaction of such business; thereby, protecting the quality of the river corridor and its natural resources.
