Flathead Voters will Decide Whether to Expand Special Zoning District that
Would Limit or Preclude Proposed Business Venture
According to the July 1, 2017, Flathead Beacon, a ballot initiative will move forward after the group Yes! For Farms and Water collected enough signatures to qualify its zoning proposal as a countywide ballot initiative, garnering support from more than 15 percent of Flathead County’s registered voters.
The Flathead Beacon, further states that the group launched its petition on March 29 in response to permits sought by Lew Weaver, the Creston man interested in turning his farmland into the Montana Artesian Water Company.
Great New Article, look under News or click below…
This is an interesting article about a Nestlé bottled water factory in Stanwood, Michigan that produces up to 1,200 bottles a minute. The factory is served by seven nearby wells drawing up to 250 gallons of spring water a minute.
Keep in mind, as you are reading this article, that on page 25 of the DNRC permit application “The Montana Artesian Water Company” intends to bottle 450 gallons per minute which is almost twice as much as the Michigan plant. Click Here for Article
Sign the petition!
Yes! For Flathead Farms and Water
Is collecting signatures on a petition to place initiative 17-01 on the ballot this fall.
If successful, Flathead County voters will have the opportunity to vote on Resolution 1594C to add property to the Egan Slough Zoning District to preserve the agricultural character of the area and limit incompatible uses.
If this resolution passes, industrial facilities, such as water bottling factories, would not be permitted within the expanded district.
It would also preserve prime Creston farmland and the scenic setting along the Flathead River.
Volunteers are needed to collect signatures on election day and until the 27th of June.
