    The annexation is subject to six conditions of approval. On behalf of the property owner, IMEG Corporation has requested a two-year extension to annexation conditions #1 and #2, which require curb, gutter, and street improvements to Howard Raser Drive and Grant Creek Road prior to occupancy of a new building addition or within one year, whichever comes first. The building addition is not yet complete and the one-year period will expire on December 13, 2022.

    Rezoning Frequently Asked Questions

    Scott Street Rezone


    Q: What is a zoning district?

    A: Zoning districts regulate what uses are permitted in a particular area. They also regulate the form of development including setbacks, maximum heights, and landscaping. Zoning districts vary across town. For example, some areas like the Development Park are suited for industrial uses whereas other areas of town like the South Hills are generally more suited for residential development. To find out what zoning district applies to your property, visit “What’s My Zoning?” and look up your address.

    Q: What is a rezoning?

    A: A rezoning changes the zoning district for a property or area. When a rezoning request is approved, the zoning map is amended to change the zoning district boundaries. Rezoning applications require a public hearing and must be approved by Planning Board and City Council. Zoning districts are applied based on the Growth Policy land use designation. The land use designation portrays the broader goals of the area and contains related zoning districts. A land owner can only request zoning districts that relate to the land use designation.

    Q: What does Planning Board and City Council consider in their decision to approve or deny a rezoning request?

    A: Rezoning applications may be approved by Planning Board and City Council only when they determine that the applicable review criteria in Title 20, Section 20.85.040.G have been satisfied. The review criteria are as follows:

    1. Whether the proposed zoning amendment is consistent with MCA § 76-2-304:
      1. Whether the zoning is made in accordance with a growth policy;
      2. Whether the zoning is designed to secure safety from fire and other dangers;
      3. Whether the zoning is designed to promote public health, public safety, and the general welfare;
      4. Whether the zoning is designed to facilitate the adequate provision of transportation, water, sewerage, schools, parks, and other public requirements;
      5. Whether the zoning considers the reasonable provision of adequate light and air;
      6. Whether the zoning considers the effect on motorized and nonmotorized transportation systems;
      7. Whether the zoning considers the promotion of compatible urban growth;
      8. Whether the zoning considers the character of the district and its peculiar suitability for particular uses; and
      9. Whether the zoning conserves the value of buildings and encourages the most appropriate use of land throughout the jurisdictional area.

    1. Whether the proposed zoning amendment corrects an error or inconsistency in the zoning ordinance or meets the challenge of a changing condition;
    2. Whether the proposed zoning amendment is in the best interests of the city as a whole.

    Q: What does City Staff consider in making a recommendation for approval or denial of a rezoning request?

    A: City Staff make a recommendation based on the findings of fact and conclusions of law in the staff report. Findings of fact are pulled from the rezoning application packet, documentation of access to infrastructure and services, the context of the surrounding neighborhood, as well as local, state, and federal regulations. The conclusions of law use the findings of fact to address whether the proposed rezoning meets the review criteria of Title 20, Section 20.85.040.G. If the conclusions of law state all of the applicable criteria have been satisfied, then City Staff recommend approval of the rezoning.

    Q: Can City Council condition approval of a rezoning request?

    A: Montana State Law prohibits conditioning the approval of a request to rezone from one standard zoning district in the City to another standard zoning district. City adopted standard zoning districts in the Title 20 Zoning Ordinance must have the same standards for all locations where that zoning occurs. All properties within the same zoning district must be treated equally and abide by the same regulations. Conditioning a rezoning would place more stringent requirements on one property owner than other property owners with land of the same zoning designation. Per State Law, City standard zoning districts must apply equally to all property with the same zoning designation.

    Q: What is a protest petition for a rezoning?

    A: State Law provides for property owners in close proximity to an area proposed for rezone to protest a rezoning. When a valid protest petition has been submitted, approval of a rezoning requires a two-thirds majority vote of those City Council members present and voting. In order to protest a rezoning, you must be a property owner of a parcel subject to the rezoning or a property owner of a parcel within 150 feet of the parcel to be rezoned. In order for the protest to be valid, the protest petition must be signed by 25% of the property owners specified above. The petition must be submitted to the zoning officer or on the public record before the City Council’s vote. We request the petition be sent to the case planner listed on the Engage Missoula page for a particular project. The case planner will ensure the petition is sent to the Zoning Officer and City Council. The petition must be submitted to allow sufficient time for the City Clerk to determine the validity of the petition. We ask that the petition be sent to the case planner at least one week prior to the City Council public hearing.

    Q: What is the difference between M1R-2 and M1R-3 zoning designations?

    A: Both M1-R-2 and M1R-3 are both Limited Industrial-Residential zones with the same allowed uses, building types, and site standards. The only difference between the two zoning designations is in the maximum allowable height; M1R-2 allows a maximum building height of 50 feet and the M1R-3 allows up to 65 feet.

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
    Community Planning, Development, and Innovation (CPDI) has received notice from WGM Group on behalf of Missoula County of their intent to provide amenities for temporary and emergency shelter on site through the Temporary Use, Emergency Homeless Shelter, and Group Living uses. The subject property is located at 2340 Mullan Road. The site will provide temporary safe outdoor space with prefabricated modular shelters, bathroom units and office space.

A storage container will also be located on site. The proposal includes general-site landscaping nearly three-times in excess of what is required by Title 20.

A chain-link fence is proposed along all sides of the proposed development space, with a vehicular access point off West Broadway in the north-eastern corner of the site and a pedestrian connection and gate in the south-east corner of the site. The pedestrian connections on site consist of concrete and gravel.

    The City Council is authorized to hold a public hearing when an agency proposes to develop or use public land contrary to these zoning regulations (Title 20, Chapter 20.85.095.A).

    The City of Missoula Development Services has received a request from Steve Adler of Adler Architects, Inc, representing the owner of the property, Pighorn, Inc., addressed 502 S 4th St W, for an Administrative Adjustment to decrease the number of required spaces for the property from 5 to 4. Title 20, Section 20.85.110.B.8 authorizes the zoning officer, after consulting with the City Engineer, to approve an administrative adjustment to approve up to a 15% reduction in the number of off-street parking spaces required for nonresidential uses located within 500 feet of a transit stop that is served at intervals of 30 minutes or less between 7:00 am and 9:00 am and between 4:00 pm and 6:00 pm.

    The subject property is zoned C1-4 (Neighborhood Commercial), which requires 2 off-street parking spaces per dwelling unit and 1 space for every 480 square feet of commercial (office) space. Since the property utilizes shared parking, the residential parking spaces may be reduced by up to 50%, so 2 spaces are required for the dwelling units. The commercial office space is 1241 square feet, so they would be required to provide 2.6 spaces. However, since they are located within 500 feet of a transit stop that is served at intervals of 30 minutes or less at peak times, they are eligible for up to a 15% reduction in the number of required spaces, which brings their required spaces to 2.

    The subject property is located in the Riverfront Neighborhood Council.
