Bowman Comprehensive Plan & Zoning Ordinance Updates

Bowman, North Dakota

SRF worked with the City of Bowman to update its comprehensive plan to serve as a basis for city growth as well as zoning and subdivision decisions. The community is located in southwestern North Dakota and has experienced the effects of the oil industry.

An early public engagement meeting resulted in public input about quality of life features in Bowman. SRF developed draft future land use plan alternatives, and worked with City officials to prepare a preferred draft land use plan. The draft land use plan was presented at a series of meetings, which included a public open house, an extraterritorial area property owner open house and a Bowman Township meeting.

A refined land use plan was then prepared based on public input and follow-up discussion with City officials
