MISSOULA — The Missoula City Council will vote Monday evening on a resolution to adopt the Sx͏ʷtpqyen Neighborhoods Master Plan, where roughly 2,000 acres on the western edge of the city are open for development.

The project -- formerly known as the Mullan Area Master Plan -- has been in the works since January, features a variety of housing types at different price points, along with mixed land uses.

If adopted, it will feature a new form-based zoning code that ensures the land use is predictable and consistent with the original plan.

The plan falls in line with Missoula’s growth policy, which promotes compact development in areas where infrastructure already exists.

During last week’s Missoula City Council meeting, the majority of council members supported the project.

The Missoula County Commissioners will vote on the proposed plan on Jan. 7.
