Bonner County, Idaho, commissioners are taking up land use code amendments involving RVs later this month, according to the Bonner County Daily Bee.

The hearing is set for 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 18.

The Bonner County Planning Commission recommended passage of a commercial use table and design standards for new RV parks and campgrounds. The panel sought additional time from the county commission to perfect the language of definitions in the code and mull a proposal to remove a 120-day occupancy limit on RVs, although those items will also be taken up when the board meets on Dec. 18.

The recommendation followed a four-hour public hearing on Nov. 21 which drew nearly a hundred members of the public. Tensions ran high in the run-up to the hearing and there were reports of death threats being made over social media, which prompted officials to have a uniformed Sandpoint Police officer on hand during the proceeding.

The code changes are meant to ease restrictions on which zones RV parks and campgrounds can be located in and allowing landowners to have up to two RVs on their property.
