The draft growth policies for Conrad, Valier and Pondera County, released last week for public review, are full of information.
The “Plan” part of each document is about 30 pages and includes the future vision for each jurisdiction, and the goals, strategies and objectives to help reach the vision over the long-term. The appendices include detailed information and maps created just for this planning project.
According to the draft plans, both Conrad and Valier will work toward future development in a pattern consistent with traditional town-type densities and layout.
The proposed long-term goal for both is to develop within municipal limits before annexing or expanding city services beyond municipal limits.
Bruce Allen Castillo, a white male, age 56-Tier-3 sex offender is living in Conrad.
He resides at 6 North Montana. He is 5’-5”, has gray hair, brown eyes and weighs 158 pounds. Castillo has several scars on his arms and legs.
He was convicted of sexual assault, a felony, and incident exposure, a misdemeanor and was just recently released from prison.
He is authorized to, and may be driving, a 1993 Ford half-ton pickup, license number 26-8982 or a 1995 blue Subaru station wagon, license plate number 26-9406.
