The City of Missoula Development Services planning staff, along with the Our Missoula Project citizen volunteers is holding an open house later this week for folks to learn draft policy language and future land use scenarios for the City of Missoula's Growth Policy. 

The open house will provide folks with an opportunity to review and comment on the goals, objectives and actions of the six citizen focus groups who have met over the last six months to create community policy directions for the City of Missoula. 

The open house will be held Thursday, April 30, from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Doubletree Hotel on Madison Street in Missoula.

The public will also have the opportunity to view a 15-minute summary slideshow report on the Missoula Asset Mapping Project, a partnership between the City and the Sonoran Institute's Community Builders program. The report will be presented at the open house as a recorded continuous slide show lasting 15 minutes. Click here to view the project details.

Citizens can also visit with Hellgate High School students who have followed the work of the focus groups and developed their own concepts for the new 20-year growth plan in each of the focus group areas. Students will be set up throughout the venue to display project ideas.

City officials point out in a news release that this comment and check-in portion part of the growth policy public process is crucial, and this open house is the public's best opportunity to see all the information in one place, share comments and ask questions.

City government is required by law to operate with a growth plan and has had a plan since 1961, and Missoula is currently working under a growth plan adopted in 2006. The resulting policy for growth will serve as a visionary blueprint for all aspects of future growth and development in Missoula.
