Becker County shoreland resort expansion moratorium lifted

Email News Alerts

On July 28, the Becker County Board of Commissioners placed a six-month moratorium on the expansion of existing resorts within shoreland districts.


That ban was rescinded last week, with the passage of five amendments to the county zoning ordinance.

The moratorium was originally implemented to give the county time to review its current zoning policies and establish a more uniform method of ordinance enforcement for all resorts within the county.
