Clagstone Meadows approved
SANDPOINT - Clagstone Meadows earned conceptual approval from the Bonner County commission on Wednesday.
The approval, which cleared the board on a 2-0 vote, came after about 45 minutes of discussion among commissioners.
The conceptual approval locks in the project's density of up 1,200 units, making it the second-most dense development in Bonner County behind Schweitzer Mountain. However, at 12,442 acres, it's the largest development ever approved in terms of land coverage.
The project will be developed in phases, with each phase going back before the county for plat approval. The developers also have to obtain state and federal regulatory approval to secure water rights, impound water to enlarge Beaver Lake or fill wetlands.
"It's not time for them to say 'yes' or 'no,'" Commissioner Cornel Rasor said of state and federal agency approvals.
Other uses on the property, such as golf courses and a shooting range, are also subject to county approval.
