Public Participation

No one knows their community better than the people who live, work and play in Clearwater County.

The decisions that Clearwater County Council makes impacts the daily lives of people in our municipality. Public participation creates opportunities for individuals with diverse perspectives to come together and share their ideas with Administration and Elected Officials. It's also an opportunity to listen and learn from others and to assist decision-makers as they explore ways to improve plans, programs and services.

Since 2018, Clearwater County has had a Public Participation Policy in place. This policy is guided by the International Association of Public Participation’s (IAP2) principles, and Council has adopted the IAP2 Public Participation Spectrum as a tool for determining the appropriate level of public participation. The policy outlines when and why public participation may take place so that Council is confident that decisions made are reflective of a range of resident and stakeholder priorities and interests, and so that service delivery fits the public’s expectations.
