Will Fourth Try Be A Charm For Whitefish Developer?

Posted: Updated:
WHITEFISH -

For the fourth time in a year, Community Infill Partners is pitching plans for a subdivision on East Second Street in Whitefish.

This latest draft has less open space than the last one, and also leaves out any affordable housing.

Planning director David Taylor says their last try took some heat for being too dense and for bringing renters into the area.

It proposes a little more than 50 single-family lots and 8 townhouses on about 23 acres.

"I think there was concerns about people renting in their neighborhood rather than owning and so the developer kind of backed off and now it's pretty much your standard cookie cutter subdivision," said Taylor.

If it gets the thumbs up from the Whitefish planning board this Thursday, it will go on to city council for the ultimate verdict on May 19.
