Missoula County Growth Policy Update
How can we preserve the character of our local communities, while also providing places for people to live and work? How can we make sure Missoula County’s open spaces and natural resources will be here for future generations, while also ensuring communities have places to grow and local economies are thriving? These questions and others will be discussed in a series of public meetings to be held around the county February 23 through March 5. The meetings will focus on draft county growth policy goals and objectives and the steps needed to achieve them.
