** GROWTH POLICY UPDATE**
The Kalispell City Planning Board has spent past year drafting an update to the text of the Kalispell Growth Policy. The updated draft addresses a number of key topics that affect the future growth and development of the City of Kalispell. Each chapter presents a brief introduction of the particular topic, lists a number of issues surrounding the topic, establishes goals and priorities, lays out the policies that will guide the city, and finishes with a number of recommended actions.
