Ruen-Yeager & Associates

In 2017, the City of Clark Fork contracted with Ruen-Yeager for planning services to help update the City's Comprehensive Plan and Map. We have since retained their services to assist with a remodel of our new Zoning Ordinance so it fits with the Comp Plan.

Comprehensive Plan

In 2018, the City Council adopted the Comp Plan and map. This is an update from the 2008 plan. There were significant changes to the plan mostly due to statutory requirements which were enacted after the last update. 

The map was updated as a result of public input during open house meetings and workshops. Much of the residential area south of 4th Ave. was adjusted to reflect a new zone, named "mixed use". Mixed use combines commercial, residential and neighborhood commercial. The idea was to introduce more area for commercial businesses.

Zoning Ordinance

In 2019, the City Council adopted the Zoning Ordinance and map. This is an update from the previous ordinance passed in 2000. There were significant changes to the ordinance due to statutory requirements which were enacted after the last update and to the changes made in the Comp Plan of 2018. 

The map was updated to reflect the current zoning areas on an aerial view and parcel data of the City of Clark Fork.
