MORRIS – Over the next 12 months, residents and stakeholders in Stevens County will be asked to think about what the future of the county may look like.


On Tuesday, the Stevens County Board of Commissioners hired consultant Ben Oleson of Hometown Planning to develop a comprehensive zoning plan for the county.

“The basic idea of a comprehensive plan is to have a discussion about how you want this county to change over time in terms of land use,” explained Oleson.
