Huge Victory! Tronstad Meadows Shot Down in City Council Ruling


For the past few weeks, there has been a lot of ‘heat’ concerning the proposal of a new subdivision where e 380 new homes would have been erected in a proposal entitled, “Tronstad Meadows”. However, in a 5-4 vote the city council followed by a tiebreaker from the mayor the ‘proposal’ came tumbling down.

As a result of this there are many elated residents who’ve fought long and hard coming against this effort.

The Flathead Beacon had this to share,

“The Kalispell City Council on Monday denied a zoning change requested by local developers that would have brought 380 single-family homes to 110 acres off of U.S. Highway 93 in a proposal called the Tronstad Meadows and Whitetail Crossing development.

In a 5-4 vote, the city council rejected a zoning change that would have altered the zoning to R-3 and brought higher density to the area with councilors Jessica Dahlman, Jed Fisher, Ryan Hunter, Chad Graham, and Mayor Mark Johnson in opposition to the change.

While the zone change failed, the council approved a growth policy change and annexation that brings the property into city limits in two separate 7-2 votes with councilors Jessica Dahlman and Jed Fisher in opposition.”

Councilman Jed Fisher hit the nail on the head when stated the following,

“We are truly putting the size of the town of Eureka or Browning on this section of land with roads that suck,” Fisher said. “There are just too many safety issues.”
