County Faces Lawsuits Over Developments

Flathead County is party to two lawsuits seeking court interpretations of the county’s subdivision regulations.

The suits were mentioned at the county commission’s March 11 meeting, when Planning Director Mark Mussman told the commissioners of the ongoing legal action.

One suit is in regards to Baker 80, a proposed 16-lot, 80-acre subdivision that was approved by the county commission in February. The future development was the source of several contentious meetings as residents of the neighboring Whitefish Hills Village Subdivision argued against Baker 80 being allowed to utilize privately maintained subdivision roads.
